Named after the Celtic mother goddess of the land, Danú embodies the traditional music of the Emerald Isle. Lead singer Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh was raised on an Irish Gaelic-speaking island in County Cork, where she spent her childhood honing her alto pipes through sean-nós, or old-style, songs alongside local vocalists. Muireann propels Danú’s melodies with her full voice and spritely tin whistle while flute solos intertwine with rapid fiddling that melts the bow into poteen. Acoustic guitar, freewheeling accordion, and thumps from the traditional bodhrán drum round out the euphony.
