This is Lúnasa's February Newsletter; I think it is very interesting and worthy to be read!  Aindréas

Dear Friends,  Well waddya know it’s 2014. We wish you a happy, healthy and … hopefully even prosperous, one. Our manager Stu says our year will be more prosperous than the last one but he’s said that every year for the past decade or more!

2014 started off in one of our favourite cities, Glasgow at one of the major events in the Celtic calendar, Celtic Connections. Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall is one very fine venue. Hopefully you saw the photos on our Facebook. If not, go and have a peek. What a night it was. Maru Tarang opened the show, followed by the brilliant Session A9 and then us … remind us not to follow such stunning acts in future.

We allowed Trev off the leash at the end of the year so that he could join his old band, The Waterboys for a‘Fisherman’s Blues’ reunion tour through Europe. It was such a success we feared we might not be seeing him again but sure enough he’s back again and better than ever. He’s certainly dressing better :). Those Waterboys are obviously not on Lúnasa rates.

We were adjusting to Trev’s new-found superstar status when we started to hear rumours that Cillian had joined the E Street Band. We all had a good old laugh at that one. The Boss and The Piper. That one kept us amused for hours in the bus … until Monday 13th January … when Kev happened upon a review for the newSpringsteen album, ‘High Hopes’ in his local paper the Ennis Gazette. They listed the key contributors and on that list was one Cillian Vallely!!! We can tell you the Lúnasa internal grapevine was running hot that night.

The good news is that whereas success obviously went to Trev’s head, Cillian’s wardrobe remains unchanged. It will take a lot more than collaborating with one of rock ‘n roll’s all-time greats to change that man.

So here we are today on the verge of a return to the two ‘A’s, Alaska and Australia as well as other US dates.
