Lúnasa With The RTE Concert Orchestra


Irish All-Star acoustic outfit, Lúnasa launches highly-anticipated collaboration with Ireland's RTE Concert Orchestra, the band's first recording in 3 years. The CD is set for September 2nd release and will be supported by UK festival appearances and major venue tour. Expect Lúnasa with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, the band's ninth album release, to reconfigure more than a few musical maps via the intersection between Irish music orchestral and Irish music traditional. The album began when RTÉ approached Niall Vallely, one of Ireland's most talented emerging composers and arrangers and brother of Lúnasa's Cillian Vallely, with the idea of creating arrangements and working with a traditional band. Niall suggested Lúnasa for the project, and the result is a magical union of Ireland's top traditional band and Ireland's national orchestra to create a very new sound in Irish music. Their first joint effort was a sold-out performance at Dublin's National Concert Hall on June 19, 2012 that was later broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1 and followed by the recording of the album. The RTÉ Concert Orchestra, whose credits include projects with talents as diverse as Luciano Pavarotti and Cleo Laine and Ireland's Sharon Shannon, Sinéad O'Connor, Imelda May and The Coronas, is conducted by David Brophy. The Enhanced CD features a 4:46 film of Lúnasa performing "Morning Nightcap" with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra at Dublin's National Concert Hall.
