Last year, world-renowned traditional super group Lúnasa combined forces with Europe’s Favourite Orchestra, our own RTÉ Concert Orchestra, for an unforgettable performance in Dublin.

They extended the collaboration into the recording studio and the resulting CD is a wonderful celebration of Irish music, re-imagined, and reaching a whole new audience.

Ellen Cranitch talks to arranger Niall Vallely, conductor David Brophy and the band to explore the origins of this groundbreaking venture, where the quality of the arrangements created an exceptional synchronicity between a great band and a great orchestra.
