Lá Nua

Lúnasa celebrate the arrival of a new decade with Lá Nua (Irish for ‘new day’). After a 4-year hiatus from the studio, this highly-anticipated album came out of extensive rehearsal and recording on location in the beautiful Cooley mountains in the northeast of Ireland. This environment, rich in the history and culture of ancient Ireland, inspired much of the creativity and new writing on the recording. The album will be released in digital format worldwide 6th April 2010. CDs are available from the site shop.
