RUNA will play in Flagstaff on July 19.

In collaboration with Grand Canyon Celtic Arts Academy, Living Traditions Presentations is excited to bring you Zac Léger Trio, Runa, and Masters of the Celtic Harp: Gráinne Hambly and William Jackson. This will be a unique, diverse, and exciting Celtic Concert Series! That you'll not want to miss!

Zac Léger Trio- July 18 at 7:30 p.m.   Riordan Mansion Visitor Center 409 W. Riordan Road.

Zac Léger has been touring and playing music professionally for over a decade. He holds numerous medals on various instruments from both the U.S. and Ireland, including an All-Ireland piping medal, one of few Americans to hold this prestigious title. He has recorded on over a two dozen albums.

Zac will be teaching flute and Irish Whistle at Grand Canyon Celtic Arts Academy and performing with Sheila Maguire (Cherish the Ladies, Lord of the Dance) on fiddle, and Gordon Gower on flute and whistles.

Runa - July 19 at 8 p.m. - Shepherd of the Hills Church 1601 N. San Francisco St.

"There is truly a mystical quality to their playing.  They create a lyrical sound that is at once unique as well as seamless." - Lori Lander Murphy, Irish Philadelphia

RUNA draws on the diverse musical backgrounds of its band members and offers a contemporary and refreshing approach to traditional and more recently composed Celtic material. Through their repertoire of both highly energetic and graceful, acoustic melodies, along with their fusion of music from Ireland, Scotland, Canada, and the United States, this vocal and instrumental ensemble gives its arrangements of traditional songs and tunes a fresh sound.

RUNA consists of vocalist and step-dancer, Shannon Lambert-Ryan of Philadelphia, Dublin-born guitarist Fionán de Barra, Cheryl Prashker of Canada on percussion, Dave Curley on mandolin, vocals, bodhrán and step-dancing, and Maggie Estes of Nashville on the fiddle. They were recently recognized in the Independent Music Awards for Best Song in the World Traditional Category for "Amhrán Mhuighinse" (Somewhere Along the Road) and in the Irish Music Awards with a nomination for Best Female Vocalist for 2012.

Masters of the Celtic Harp: Gráinne Hambly and William Jackson    July 25 at 7:30 p.m.  Riordan Mansion Visitor Center. 409 W. Riordan Road.

Our Celtic Summer Series will finish with beautiful music from two world-renowned harpists.

Rarely has Irish and Scottish music been heard together in a way that compares with the music of Gráinne Hambly and William Jackson.  Quite simply, Gráinne Hambly and William Jackson are two of the foremost harpers of Ireland and Scotland. Combining their extraordinary talents on harp as well as concertina, tin whistle and bouzouki, The Masters of the Celtic Harp, have been performing all over the country and dazzling audiences with their artistry. With demanding solo careers that often have them performing on different continents, their Two Sides of Celtic show is a special treat.

"...the most creative interpretations of Irish and Scottish traditional music you're likely to hear."
