Heading to Glasgow for Celtic Connections where they will perform with BBC Radio 3’s Mary Ann Kennedy and recently having finished a tour with Scottish folk legends Capercaillie (also founded around the same time in the mid-80s) Luar Na Lubre take time to make a rare London stop and to share their beautiful and dynamic interpretations of Galician folk music, which is part of the Celtic tradition.

Listen O SON DO AR - Luar Na Lubre
Luar Na Lubre's music is suggestive and atmospheric as well as rhythmic and dance-inducing with flying melodies led on Galician bagpipes, flutes, and fiddle. They have been significant in the Celtic revival in Galicia, demonstrating the very obvious cultural connections between northwest Spain and Ireland.
