For Immediate Release

Danú brings its high-energy celebration of the Emerald Isle to the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Performing Arts Center (PAC) for one night only, Friday, March 21, at 7:30 p.m.

Hailing from historic County Waterford, Danú is one of today’s leading traditional Irish ensembles. Danú’s mix of ancient Irish music and new repertoire, described as both clever and fun, takes the audience on a musical journey to their native Ireland to create an unforgettable evening.

For over a decade, Danú’s virtuosi players on flute, tin whistle, fiddle, button accordion, bouzouki, and vocals (Irish and English), have performed around the globe and recorded seven critically acclaimed albums. Their live DVD, One Night Stand, was filmed at Vicar St. Dublin. Danú’s live performances are often broadcast on NPR, the CBC and the BBC.

Winners of numerous awards from the BBC and Irish Music Magazine, Danú has toured throughout Europe, the Middle East, and North America with stops at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Symphony Space in New York, and major concerts in the United Kingdom, India, Israel, and across Europe.

Tickets are reserved seating and priced at $20 General, $15 Discount and $10 UH Hilo/HawCC students (with a valid student ID) and children, up to age 17, and are available by calling the UH Hilo Box Office at 932-7490 or ordering online at artscenter.uhh.hawaii.edu.
