Albiez-Montrond - Chef-lieu

For this not-to-be-missed mid-week festival, Celti'cimes has invited the French group Luas, the Irish group Buille, and to round off the evening, the Irish group Lùnasa.


Named after an ancient Celtic harvest festival in honor of the Irish god Lugh, Lúnasa was formed in 1997 by members of some of the biggest Irish bands of the previous decade, with an early review in Folk Roots magazine describing the band as an "Irish musical dream". From the outset, the band's complex arrangements and unique sound redefined the boundaries of traditional music and energized audiences worldwide. Rave reviews followed, with The Irish Echo describing the band as "the hottest Irish acoustic band on the planet". MOJO magazine called the band "the new gods of Irish music", adding that "no one since the Bothies has used such an exciting rhythmic underlay". Billboard declared that "anyone who listens can't help but find them infectious".

As well as being the name of Dublin's tramway, luas means speed in Gaelic: this becomes obvious as soon as the band's first melodies ring out, whose energy and rhythm will take you right to the heart of Ireland.
Born of a meeting between young musicians from Lyon and Montpellier who share the same passion for Irish music, this group offers a musical mix of energetic pieces and songs with a softer rhythm, for a concert rich in sharing and emotion.
Playing on the alliance between emblematic Irish instruments such as the uilleann pipes, the low whistle and the bodhrán (drum) and acoustic but resolutely contemporary arrangements, the Luas musicians strive to produce an original sound, drawing a wide variety of audiences into the very special atmosphere of Irish bars: both warm and lively.

In Gaelic, "buille" means "beat, blow". Buille is above all an original rhythm, an impact on Irish music that reshapes it and breathes new life into it.

This band from the Emerald Isle invites you on a truly creative journey, with adventurous harmonies and a driving groove.

Considered one of the most exciting acts on the Irish folk scene, and with three critically acclaimed albums to their credit, this musical ensemble will have you dancing to their own compositions, where traditional sounds meet contemporary intonations: a guaranteed crowd-pleaser! Come and vibrate to the sound of a new generation of Irish music!
