Event Details

Atlantic Arc is a collaborative ensemble of renowned traditional musicians and singers from Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland, under the musical direction of Dónal Lunny, one of Ireland’s most accomplished performers, composers and producers.

Having formed in 2016 for a series of one-off collaborations, the members of Atlantic Arc discovered they shared a deep interest in exploring and cultivating contemporary expressions of traditional music. This connection set Atlantic Arc on a course of openness and curiosity which over the past 5 years has led to a powerful live repertoire of original, traditional, re-arranged and shared material, drawn from their musical ancestry.

Our synergy is truly exceptional and the musical vibrancy a pure sensation, Atlantic Arc a musical joy for me” – Dónal Lunny

Their debut single, My Son David, was released in April last year to an outstanding media response. Their debut album is expected shortly.
