Graceland University is pleased to invite you to the opening performance of the 2015 tour of Caladh Nua as part of the 2014-15 Graceland university Performing Arts Series. The series is dedicated to bringing culturally diverse and talented musicians, actors and performers to Lamoni and the surrounding region, and this show is no exception.

Caladh Nua is a tightly-knit, vibrant and staggeringly talented band with its origins deeply rooted in the southern counties of Ireland. Comprised of five versatile musicians and singers playing a wide selection of instruments – from banjo to fiddle, guitar to bodhran and tin whistle to button accordion – the band has captured the essential qualities of traditional Irish music and balanced them finely with an innovative contemporary flair.

Through a series of international tours and festivals across the globe, which saw the band take the stage in cities such as Paris, Vienna, Copenhagen, Berlin, Mumbai and Vancouver, Caladh Nua has cast a uniquely captivating net of Irish music and song over an ever widening worldwide audience.

A long list of TV and radio broadcasts of their performances and two acclaimed recordings includes American Public Radio, the BBC, and RTE. Performing a vast repertoire of haunting songs and evocative Irish tunes, Caladh Nua is a young ensemble on the rise.

Tickets for the Feb. 26, 7:30 p.m. show are available at the Shaw Ticket Office in Shaw Center on the Graceland University campus, or by visiting www.graceland.edu/ShawTickets. Reserved seating is $25 and general admission is $20 per ticket. Student tickets are available for K-12 students for $5 with a current school ID – only one ticket per student. For more information call 641-784-5045.
