Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a ticket to an Irish music concert featuring Danú (up to a $35 value) presented by Washington University's Edison Theatre on March 5 at 8 p.m. at the 560 Music Center's E. Desmond Lee Concert Hall.
The Edison Theatre's Ovations series entertains sensory mechanisms with eclectic music, theater, and dance performances. Renowned Irish ensemble Danú has shared its authentic ballads and in-time foot taps with audiences throughout the world, including the president of Ireland. Accompanied by flute, button accordion, fiddle, bouzouki, and other traditional Irish instruments, they'll allow crowds to legally eavesdrop on their blend of ancient native tunes and contemporary pieces.
- Danu is one of the Emerald Isle’s hottest young groups moving the ancient music of their homeland into the future. Their virtuoso playing has mesmerized audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. – Jeff Maisey, Veer
- Its arrangements show an ear for texture that allows for both drive and delicacy. – New York Times
