RUNA: A concert of Irish music and dance

A concert of exciting Irish music and dance from the band RUNA featuring stunning vocals and high energy instrumental work.

RUNA offers a thrilling and redefining take on traditional music, interweaving the haunting melodies and exuberant tunes of Ireland and Scotland with the lush harmonies and intoxicating rhythms of bluegrass, flamenco, blues and jazz.

“Celtic music at its very best!” — Gene Shay, co-founder of the Philadelphia Folk Festival; WXPN-FM

The band consists of vocalist and step-dancer Shannon Lambert-Ryan of Philadelphia; Dublin-born guitarist Fionán de Barra; Cheryl Prashker of Canada on percussion; Dave Curley of Galway on mandolin, vocals, bodhrán, and step-dancing; and Maggie Estes of Kentucky on the fiddle. Members of RUNA have played with Solas, Riverdance, Slide, Clannad, Fiddlers’ Bid, Moya Brennan, Eileen Ivers, Hazel O’Conner, Keith & Kristyn Getty, Barcó, Téada, Jonathan Edwards, and the Guy Mendilow Band.

Their fourth album, Current Affairs, has garnered praise on both sides of the Atlantic, building their reputation as one of the most innovative traditional bands of their generation.
