Lunasa

Compass Com

By Jill Ettinger

Published January 5, 2007

As the saying goes, with age comes wisdom. In the case of Irish folk band Lunasa (named for an Irish festival gathering to celebrate the Irish God of the arts, Luth), their sixth release (meaning “six,” and pronounced “Shay”) reveals that wisdom is sometimes accompanied by large doses of grace and beauty as well. Over the last few years, Lunasa has gained iconic status, receiving wide acclaim for their alluring, uniquely Irish sound and brilliant musicianship. The five-man instrumental collective boasts an impressive mastery on instruments like fiddle, whistle, Uillean pipes, guitar and bass. Fresh, modern folk, seductively highlighted through their stunning instrumentation, delivers an emotionally captivating journey on . Lingering close to the sounds that have propelled this group into the hearts of their fans, Lunasa dives deep into their rootsy foundation on standout tracks including the tender “Absent Friends,” the quiet “Black River” and the exotic “Glentrasna.”
