“Solid traditional music with plenty of flair and lots of musical imagination.”

Irish Music Magazine

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the vibrant and staggeringly talented band Caladh Nua whose origins are deeply rooted in the Southern counties of Ireland. Comprised of five versatile musicians and singers who play a wide selection of instruments—from banjo to fiddle, guitar to bodhran, and tin whistle to button accordion—the band captures the essential qualities of traditional Irish music and balances them with an innovative contemporary flair. Through a series of international tours and festivals, Caladh Nua has cast a uniquely captivating net of Irish music and song over an ever-widening audience. With its haunting songs and evocative Irish tunes, this young ensemble on the rise is sure to reel you in! The JMU Treble Chamber Choir will make a guest appearance in this performance.
