Traditional Celtic music ensemble Caladh Nua will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 3 at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts.

Caladh Nua is a vibrant and talented band with origins rooted in the Southern counties of Ireland. Comprised of five versatile musicians and singers playing a wide selection of instruments — from banjo to fiddle, guitar to bodhran and tin whistle to button accordion — the band captures the essential qualities of traditional Irish music and balances them with an innovative contemporary flair.

Through a series of international tours and festivals across the globe — which saw the band take the stage in cities such as Paris, Vienna, Copenhagen, Berlin, Mumbai and Vancouver — Caladh Nua has cast a uniquely captivating net of Irish music and song over an ever-widening worldwide audience.

A long list of TV and radio broadcasts of their performances and two acclaimed recordings includes American Public Radio and the BBC. Performing a vast repertoire of haunting songs and evocative Irish tunes, Caladh Nua is a young ensemble on the rise.

Tickets for the performance are $20 for adults, $16 for seniors 62+, $10 for youth 18 and under, $10 for Bucknell employees and retirees (limit 2), $10 for Bucknell students (limit 2), and $10 for non-Bucknell college students (limit 2). Tickets can be purchased online at the Campus Box Office or by calling 570-577-1000.
