The Story so Far….

2010-03-06thestorysofar‘The Story so Far….’ Lúnasa’s latest CD celebrating the band’s musical journey …
Re-visited and re-mixed, including two new recordings of Lúnasa classics ‘Aibreann’ and ‘Morning Nightcap'(that’s Pierre and The Wedding Reel set to those in the know!).
Includes tracks from all 6 Lúnasa albums.
‘The Story So Far…’ includes expansive liner notes on the band’s history and an extensive photo journal of the past 11 years.
