Lunasa: Christmas from Ireland with Special Guest Ashley Davis

Lunasa: Christmas from Ireland with Special Guest Ashley Davis
Friday, December 13th at 8 p.m.
Member Presale: 6/26 - 6/27
Public Sale: 6/28

In Ireland, in years past, families, friends, and neighbors gathered in kitchens and celebrated with music, stories, songs, and – if the room was big enough – dancing.  Once a year Lúnasa brings this type of bygone celebration to theatres and music halls across the United States.  Irish Central says of the band: “the group doesn’t just play jigs and reels as they have been handed down for generations…but rather more textured and nuanced variants of Irish dance music , displaying not only their notable skills on their respective instruments, but also their creativity and arrangements.”
Since coming together in 1996, Lúnasa has performed over 2000 concerts, and achieved a worldwide reputation as a different breed of Irish traditional music group – one with the repertoire of life-long traditional musicians, the intricate harmonies of a jazz combo, and the energy of a rock band.
The musical passport of recording artist and songwriter Ashley Davis offers a rich display of colorful stamps form Ireland and Scotland, but also heavily-drawn from the influences of her birthplace, the Kansas plains, and the country music tradition born of the Appalachian Mountains.
Audiences can take a break from the holiday hustle-bustle and canned carols, and join Lúnasa and Ashley Davis for an evening of spirited instrumental music, evocative airs, spoken word, and songs both unknown and familiar.
