Other Info
A quintet from Ireland, Canada and the US, RUNA has won awards in Ireland and the United States for their new versions of Irish and Celtic music, with vocals in Irish gaelic and English and with instrumentals on fiddle, cittern and bodhran (Irish drum) plus varied percussion. They have been called "Celtic music at its best- Brilliant." by Gene Shay of WXPX, Philadelphia, where they have played the Philadelphia Folk Festival many times. Two members from Ireland are Dave Curley of the band Slide, on vocals, cittern, banjo, bodhran, and step-dancing (Slide's and now Runa's "secret weapon") and Fionan de Barra from Dublin, on guitar and vocals.
Runa was named best Traditional Irish Band of 2013 by Live Ireland.
Lead vocals are by Shannon Lambert-Ryan of Philadelphia, with fiddle by Maggie Estes of Nashville, and varied percussion by Cheryl Prashker of Montreal.
