Our 2023 Spring season kicks off with a powerhouse of performers who have been involved in some of the country’s most well known ensembles: Noriana Kennedy of The Whileaways and Solas, Cherish the Ladies’ Mirella Murray, Donogh Hennessy—one of Lúnasa’s founding members—and Téada’s Oisín Mac Diarmada. Their combined accolades as soloists and group members are impressive: an Emmy Award, multiple Grammy and RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Award nominations and the All-Ireland fiddle award, to name a few. But what will grab audiences most is the way these four artists bring a thrilling combination of instrumental and vocal prowess to stages throughout this tour with their sublime songs, energetic tunes and captivating arrangements. A unique musical mélange which distils the essence of their success, and one not to be missed!
