Lúnasa (music)


Lúnasa, are one of the hottest Irish bands around and are guaranteed to raise the roof when they come to Hailsham Pavilion this weekend in the second of May's Spyboy shows at the venue. A powerhouse of a band, Lúnasa employ a melodic and memorable interweaving of wind and string instruments, with stunning musical arrangements.

Former Waterboy and Sharon Shannon's bassist Trevor Hutchinson teamed up with guitarist Donogh Hennessy in 1996. Other band members over the years have included Uilleann piper John McSherry and flautist/piper Michael McGoldrick, fiddle player Seán Smyth and flautist/whistle player Kevin Crawford.

The current band of Seán Smyth, Keven Crawford and Trevor Hutchinson will be joined for this current tour by Paul Meehan on guitar and Cillian Vallely on Uilleann pipes and whistles.

Sunday 13th May, 19:30, £19.50.
