Lúnasa and Tim O’Brien

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

Folk Roots magazine has rightly termed Lúnasa an “Irish music dream team”, as their members comprise the best of the best in recent Irish music. While Grammy® award winning singer-songwriter-instrumentalist Tim O’Brien (called “one of my favorite singers” by Dire Straits frontman, Mark Knopfler) has collaborated with Steve Martin and the Chieftains among numerous others, as well as had his songs recorded by everyone from Garth Brooks to the Dixie Chicks and Nickel Creek.

Together, they embark on a transatlantic journey exploring the common roots, interplay and mutual influences at the heart of American and Irish music, gifting audiences with a rich and exciting concert experience to be remembered for all time.
