OXFORD – Celtic sounds come to Oxford this Sunday afternoon, at 3 p.m., as 6 On The Square (6OTS) warmly welcomes the award winning RUNA! Their high energy music is Celtic elegance at its best. RUNA digests the music of yesterday, and reinvents the tunes into their distinctive, contemporary style that is honest and truly delightful.
This Philadelphia-based contemporary Celtic ensemble burst onto the music scene in 2008, although its members have played with many familiar bands such as, Solas, Riverdance, Clannad, Fiddlers’ Bid, Moya Brennan, Eileen Ivers, Hazel O’Conner, Full Frontal Folk, Keith & Kristyn Getty, and the Guy Mendilow Band.
RUNA consists of vocalist, Shannon Lambert-Ryan of Philadelphia, Dublin-born guitarist, Fionán de Barra, and Cheryl Prashker of Canada on percussion. Fionan de Barra’s guitar playing weaves magic when paired with guest fiddler Tomoko Omura and hand drummer Cheryl Prashker. It will be a fabulous show!
