Irish folk band to perform at Wachholz College Center next year

| November 16, 2023 12:00 AM

World-renowned Irish folk band Lúnasa will perform on the stage at the Wachholz College Center in 2024. 

Tickets are on sale now for the concert at McClaren Hall on March 10, 2024, at 7 p.m. for a captivating and unforgettable evening of traditional and contemporary Celtic music.

Formed in 1997, Lúnasa has long been one of contemporary Irish music’s leading voices.

Named after an ancient Celtic harvest festival in honor of the Irish god Lugh, the group that Folk Roots magazine once called an “Irish music dream team” was formed from members of some of Ireland’s greatest bands and over the years has proven its mettle time and again, having sold over a quarter of a million records, and collaborated with notable artists outside the tradition such as Natalie Merchant and Mary-Chapin Carpenter. 

They have performed more than 2,000 shows across 36 countries including high-profile concert venues such as Carnegie Hall, The Hollywood Bowl, National Concert Hall (Dublin), and Paris Bercy, and many of the leading festivals such as Glastonbury, Womadelaide & Edmonton.
