“Danú stirs the blood and lifts the heart.” —Irish Music Magazine
Celebrate Burlington Irish Heritage Week with the high-energy traditional sounds of Danú. Hailing from historic County Waterford, Danú is one of today’s leading traditional Irish ensembles built around accordion, fiddle, flute, tin whistle, fiddle, bouzouki, and the rich vocals of Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh. Winner of major awards from the BBC and Irish Music Magazine, Danú mixes ancient music with contemporary works to create a spirit-raising concoction that’s “impressive, immersive, and uniquely and unmistakably Irish” (Strings Magazine).
Flynn programming is supported by endowments initiated through challenge grants from the Ford, Argosy, and Doris Duke Charitable foundations and matched by generous support from the community.
