DANÚ, a leading traditional Irish ensemble, takes their name from the Celtic mother goddess that imbues the land with a power that cannot be overcome by mortals. DANÚ’s musicians seem to draw from these mythical forces found in their Celtic heritage to release “a vibrant mix of virtuosity, energy, and empathy.” Celtic music lovers around the world have been thrilled by the ensemble’s virtuoso players on fiddle, flutes, button accordion, percussion and the unforgettable voice of Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh.
