Lúnasa Live Wiring

How does the nervous system react to music? How does learning music effect our brains? The traditional music group Lúnasa are hoping to help draw attention to these sorts of questions tonight when they perform with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra in the National Concert Hall as part of the sixteenth International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders. Professor Steven Frucht of Mount Sinai Medical Centre, New York, will set the scene in advance with a talk about the science of learning music.

Meanwhile, Lúnasa are also part of an impressive line-up in Ennis for the Love:Live Music day on Thursday (21 June). Also performing on the day are the Kilfenora Céilí Band, the Teetotallers (Martin Hayes, Kevin Crawford of Lúnasa and John Doyle) and Maura O’Connell. The event takes place in the Abbey Street car park from 6pm.
