Lorg Lunny

TG4 Tonight, 10.02 pm

Including footage of Dónal Lunny meeting students of the Irish World Academy's traditional music programmes at UL.


In the second of a new 8 part series on TG4, Dónal Lunny scours the country for young musicians to create a band with a fresh new sound in traditional music. Part of his search took place at the University of Limerick, and particularly among the students of the MA Irish Traditional Music Performance and BA Irish Music and Dance and in fact, three of the final members of his new band, to be entitled Cirrus have been drawn from students of these programmes at the Irish World Academy UL.  Donal Lunny is one of Ireland's best-known musicians, composers, producers and founder member of some of the country's seminal bands, including the Bothy Band, Planxty and Moving Hearts.  He is currently an artist-in-residence at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance and now a regular fixture at UL where he conducts masterclasses and workshops with traditional music students.
