The Donal Lunny Band
My first band which resulted in a recording was when I was a member of Donal Lunny’s Celtic Orchestra in 1985. We did one recording, that was for the PanCeltic TV (RTE) Programme. Out of this came The Donal Lunny Band in 1987. This band was put together to take part in the O’Riada Retrospective in April, ’97 in the N.C.H. and it was also televised live. The album (22 mins.) was released under the Gael-Linn Label. Others who featured in the band were Arty McGlynn, Nollaig Casey (Coolfin), Manus Lunny (Capercaillie), Steve White, Sean Og Potts and Damien Quinn (Cian).
