By WGBH Arts

Watch Lunasa perform "The Merry Sisters of Fate" at The Burren.

BOSTON — Earlier this month Lunasa, called "the hottest Irish acoustic band on the planet" by the Irish Times, joined Brian O'Donovan, host of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH Radio, at The Burren Irish Pub in Somerville. O'Donovan hosts a regular feature there called The Burren Backroom Series, and has presented Celtic artists from Fiddler Winifred Horan to Solas to Frankie Gavin & De Dannan and Brid Harper.


Lunasa is named for an ancient Celtic harvest festival in honor of the Irish god Lugh, patron of the arts. The band includes some of the top musical talents in Ireland:

Seán Smyth -- Fiddle, Whistles
Kevin Crawford -- Flutes, Whistles
Trevor Hutchinson -- Double Bass
Cillian Vallely - Uillean pipes, Whistles
Ed Boyd - Guitar

Watch Lunasa perform ""Fleur de Mandragore /Ashplant"
