The term super-group and Celtic music don’t often end up in the same sentence, but Lunasa qualifies as the first and perhaps only Celtic super-group around. Here on their sixth album they prove that Celtic music can be as vibrant and musically adventurous as any genre. With two new guitarists added to replace founding member Donogh Hennesy, Se expands their musical palette to include electric slide guitar and a trombone choir. No, this isn’t your father’s Celtic band, but Se may be just the rhythmic and melodic shot in the arm you long for.
