Two legends in Irish Music will be appearing at the Alberta Street Pub for an exclusive performance on Thursday, January 15th at 7pm.
As key members of the Irish super-group Lúnasa, Kevin Crawford and Cillian Vallely’s blazing instrumentals have helped make the group one of the most acclaimed and influential bands in the recent Irish music history. Having released seven band albums and worked on numerous solo projects though, the duo decided to combine their unique talents to create something different. The result was the critically acclaimed album, “On Common Ground”, which was awarded The Irish American News album of the year in 2010.
Cillian Vallely is an uilleann pipes and low whistle player from Armagh in the north of Ireland. In recent years, he has played and recorded with Bruce Springsteen, Natalie Merchant, Mary Chapin-Carpenter, Tim O’Brien, and Riverdance in addition to recording as a guest on over 50 albums. With Lunasa, he has played at The Hollywood Bowl, Glastonbury Festival, Womad Aledaide, Edmonton Folk Festival in addition to multiple tours of Asia, Australia, US and Europe.
“Vallely, whose family has played a seminal role in piping and Irish music in the north of Ireland for years, shows why he is one of the most respected pipers playing today” Irish Voice
