“Lunasa With The Rte Concert Orchestra” is a glittering collection of tunes sparked from a brilliant union of two of Ireland’s brightest musical stars - a remarkable traditional Irish music band and Ireland’s treasured national orchestra. Their first joint effort was a sold-out performance at Dublin’s National Concert Hall on June 19, 2012 that was broadcast on Ireland’s RTE Radio 1, followed later in the year by the recording of the album. The RTE Concert Orchestra, whose credits include projects with talents as diverse as Luciano Pavarotti and Jon Lord of Deep Purple and Ireland’s Sinead O’Connor and Imelda May, is conducted by David Brophy. Film footage of the concert is included on the CD.
