Culann's Hounds & Lucia Comnes
Culann's Hounds have built a reputation for high-energy stage shows and a ruthless dedication to rocking their audiences. Folk melodies, sensibilities, and stories from Ireland, France, and early America permeate their music. This mash-up of tradition and energy is at once thought- provoking, accessible and infectious. The Hounds' original material is a mirror of their lives, tales of distant lands, love, elation, and loss.
With a blazing fiddle and a luminous voice, Lucia Comnes has been involved in the Irish (and Balkan) music scene both in Ireland and the U.S. The classically trained violinist has studied with fiddle masters
Martin Hayes, Kevin Burke and Oisín MacDiarmada, played in countless sessions, performed with a number of bands (most notably Liam Ó'Maonlaí and The Hothouse Flowers) and recently attended the Traditional Irish Music Program at University College, Cork to study Gaelic and sean-nos, or 'old-style,' singing. She has performed at numerous traditional music festivals in Ireland and was featured at the SF Irish Fest in 2008 and 2009. She has also been a member of KITKA, the Eastern European Women's choir.
