Across the Black River

Lunasa – Black River

So I have tickets to go see Lunasa live at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago on March 11, 2012.

Check out Road to Barga or Midnight in Aviles for a sample of the lovely traditional Irish melodies and impeccable violin skills you have come to expect from the name Lunasa.

Lunasa isn’t only about the violin. Glentrasna is a hymn driven by a flute or whistle that makes me recall the Titanic soundtrack, only Titanic’s soundtrack was never this good. Autumn Child has amazing guitar as well. The combination of emotionally moving composition and virtuoso playing is, dare I say, Ericjohnsonian.

The March concert will be the highlight of my next year’s spring break, if not the highlight of the whole year. If you are going to be around Chicago at the time, I highly recommend you get tickets of your own.

See, even Yukari is impressed.
