You guys should totally go see Lunasa when they come to the US. They are from Ireland, are amazing and excellent musicians, and are dedicated to studying and reviving Celtic music of all stripes.
Tour dates here.
Why do bands I love always play in the country where I’m not? First The Stone Roses visit Singapore while I’m in the US. Now Lunasa in the US while I’m in Singapore. Ugh.
P.S. I just checked out The Stone Roses website and they are doing some gigs in the UK in June 2013. Maybe, when we move back to the US next June, we can arrange a stop in England? Maybe?
P.P.S. Oh, and the Blur reunion? Again, I’m on the wrong continent. Sigh.
