Irish music and culture in America has always
been a two-way street, moving music and
musicians back and forth across the watery
main. Philadelphia’s Irish-American roots
band, RUNA, embodies this movement with
their new album, Current Affairs, drawing
equal inspiration from both the deep and
ancient roots of the Celtic tradition and
the modern reality of the Irish in America.
On Current Affairs, RUNA, draw from their
own family history, the stories of the Irish in
America, old songs from the Old World, and
Americana and bluegrass influences. With
members hailing from three countries (USA, Canada, Ireland), it makes sense that they’d
spread their nets as far as possible to pull in these very different influences, but what’s
surprising is how well the album meshes together. That’s a testament to the vision of
RUNA and to the ties that bind.

Dàimh are based in Lochaber in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland; an area as much renowned for its scenic beauty as for its rich musical and cultural heritage. A long‐established favourite at folk festivals in Scotland, Ireland and across Europe, twice nominated for Folk Band of the Year at the Scots Traditional Music Awards, Dàimh are also regulars on BBC television.

Recent line‐up changes have seen the introduction of Gaelic champion, Griogair Labhruidh, on vocals and Uillean Pipes, adding the depth and power of his commanding vocal performances to an already phenomenal instrumental arsenal of bagpipes, fiddle, mandolin and guitar.
