Celtic-American “super group” RUNA moves beyond Irish folk music into Americana and roots, offering a thrilling new take on tradition by interweaving the haunting melodies and exuberant tunes of Ireland and Scotland with the lush harmonies and intoxicating rhythms of Jazz, Bluegrass, Flamenco and Blues. RUNA continues a traditional culture in a modern age. The backbone of its signature roots sound is created from the musical and geographical diversity of its individual band members; vocalist and step-dancer, Shannon Lambert-Ryan of Philadelphia, Dublin-born guitarist Fionán de Barra, Cheryl Prashker of Canada on percussion, Jake James of New York on the fiddle, and Caleb Edwards of Nashville on mandolin and vocals. Celebrating 10 years, RUNA’s creativity blazes a trail for the future of folk and earns them the reputation as one of the most innovative Irish folk groups of this generation.
