RUNA PERFORMS IN FLAGSTAFF ON MAY 7TH

Runa - May 7 at 7pm
Coconino Center for the Arts
Tickets are $20 in advance, on sale at Coconino Center and Olives Wild.
Seeking to preserve and continue a traditional culture in a modern age, RUNA creates the backbone of its signature roots sound from the musical and geographical diversity of its individually established band members.  Their strive for excellence and creativity blazes a trail for the future of folk music, earning them the reputation as one of the most innovative Irish folk groups of this generation.
“Best of all, RUNA sounds like no one else.” – Travis Rogers, Jr., Music Life and Times
Members of RUNA have played with Solas, Riverdance, Slide, Clannad, Fiddlers’ Bid, Moya Brennan, Eileen Ivers, Hazel O’Conner, Keith & Kristyn Getty, Barcó, Téada, Jonathan Edwards, and the Guy Mendilow Band.
RUNA consists of vocalist and step-dancer, Shannon Lambert-Ryan of Philadelphia, Dublin-born guitarist, Fionán de Barra, Cheryl Prashker of Canada on percussion, Dave Curley on mandolin, vocals, bodhrán, and step-dancing, and Maggie Estes of Kentucky on the fiddle.
Receiving lavish praise on both sides of the Atlantic, RUNA recently released their fourth album, “Current Affairs”, a cross-pollination of RUNA’s signature roots sound with the overtones of Appalachia and Americana.  Hailed by Marcene Bronson, (The Celtic Crier) as “an incredible masterpiece”, “Current Affairs” has been nominated in the 2014 Irish Music Awards for “Best New Irish CD” and in the 2015 Independent Music Awards for “Best Bluegrass Song” (Ain’t No Grave) and Best World/Traditional Song (False Knight Upon the Road).

Arizona Emerald Society Pipes and Drums



“The bagpipe is much used by the Irish: to its sound this unconquered fierce and warlike people march their armies and encourage each other to deeds of valor. With it they also accompany the dead to the grave making such sorrowful sounds as to invite, nay to compel the bystander to weep.”
Vincenzo Galilei – 1581
A group of like minded individuals from the Arizona Law Enforcement Emerald Society and the Phoenix Fire Fighters Emerald Society are interested in forming a joint Police and Fire Emerald Society pipe and drum band.  Band membership will be open to all active, associate, and honorary members of the societies.  The Band’s mission will be to support fraternity and brotherhood between the Law Enforcement and Fire Fighters Emerald Societies, to support all community police and fire departments throughout the valley, to support the activities of the Phoenix Irish Cultural Center, and to support our community as a whole. The Band will be a non-competition band, wear the Irish solid green kilt, and play predominately Irish pipe tunes.
To learn more about this exciting opportunity please contact Ed Collins, 480-216-7748, or email edcollins@live.com
