Item Description

Founding member Trevor Hutchinson spent much of 2007 pouring over the band's body of work to select the tracks that best represent not only the energy, drive and fire that Lúnasa is known for, but also the uniqueness of their compositions and arrangement style. Along the way, the band made a side trip to the Compass Sound Studio in Nashville to re-record "Aibreann" and "Morning Nightcap" as a way of illustrating the sound of the current lineup and in the process redefined these band favorites as classics of their repertoire. The end result is a mind-blowing showcase of arguably the greatest instrumental group ever to exist in Irish music.

 

"One of the hottest, most electrifying bands in Irish music today...“ The Irish Echo

"The biggest buzz in Irish music is emanating from Lúnasa.“ The Chicago Tribune

"Lúnasa manages to marry jazz-rock bass lines and an expanded harmonic sensibility to an older rural music...determined to drag Irish folk music kicking and screaming into the 21st century." The Washington Post
