In a nutshell
Galicia’s leading Celtic band celebrates 30 years
Luar Na Lubre (Moonlight of the Magic Forest) is Galicia’s leading Celtic folk band, celebrating over 30 years of great music, 17 albums and over 300,000 sales. Heading to Glasgow for Celtic Connections where they will perform with BBC Radio 3’s Mary Ann Kennedy and recently having finished a tour with Scottish folk legends Capercaillie (also founded around the same time in the mid-80s) Luar Na Lubre take time to make a rare London stop.
The band rose to international fame when Mike Oldfield used their song O son do ar on his 1996 Voyager album and his Tubular Bells III album featured Luar Na Lubre’s then vocalist and they toured with him as support band.
What to Expect
Luar Na Lubre's music is suggestive and atmospheric as well as rhythmic and dance-inducing with flying melodies led on Galician bagpipes, flutes, and fiddle. They have been significant in the Celtic revival in Galicia, demonstrating the very obvious cultural connections between northwest Spain and Ireland.
