An energetic blend of contemporary and traditional music will be playing on May 18.

FAMED for their original compositions, an Irish music ensemble will be visiting Torrington next month on their UK tour.

Lúnasa will be playing an energetic blend of contemporary and traditional music at The Plough on May 18.

The group, famed for their powerful, bass-driven rhythms, formed in 1996 and are embarking on their most UK extensive tour to date.

They have sold out tours of the UK, USA, Europe and Japan, earned the Coeur Miroir award at Quebec City summer festival in 2003, and named performers of the decade at Live Ireland awards, the LIVIES, in 2010.

Kevin Crawford, a member of Lúnasa, said: “This tour will be our most extensive UK tour ever; we will be visiting all points of the compass but are especially looking forward to coming to Great Torrington.

“We’ve not played here before so are looking forward to making new friends on this visit.”
