Expired Dónal Lunny & Students of UCD Traditional Music Practices

2:45 pm - 3:15 pm
Main Stage

The UCD Creative Futures Academy is proud to present this performance from the students of our new Traditional Music Practices module, with our very special guest Artist-in-Residence, Dónal Lunny. In this performance, a small group of our trad students will present a selection of jigs, reels and hornpipes, alongside their own original compositions, which they developed during the course of this unique module.


The group is led by Dr. Peter Moran, Assistant Professor in Composition and Performance in the UCD School of Music, and by Dónal Lunny, one of the most influential figures in Irish traditional music over the past 50 years. Lunny is a founding member, arranger and producer of such groups as Planxty, The Bothy Band and Moving Hearts, and he is currently UCD Creative Fellow with the Creative Futures Academy.


You can drop in to this event whenever you’d like, but don’t forget to register for the Family Fun Zone if you wish to attend.
