“Best of all, RUNA sounds like no one else!” — Travis Rogers, Jr., Music Life & Times

Celebrating 13 years together as a band, Celtic-American Roots music “super group” RUNA continues to push the boundaries of Irish folk music into the Americana and roots music formats. Interweaving the haunting melodies and exuberant tunes of Ireland and Scotland with the lush harmonies and intoxicating rhythms of jazz, bluegrass, flamenco, and blues, they offer a thrilling and redefining take on traditional music.

Seeking to preserve and continue a traditional culture in a modern age, RUNA creates the backbone of its signature roots sound from the musical and geographical diversity of its individually established band members.  Their strive for excellence and creativity blazes a trail for the future of folk music, earning them the reputation as one of the most innovative Irish folk groups of this generation.

RUNA consists of vocalist and step-dancer Shannon Lambert-Ryan of Philadelphia, Dublin-born guitarist Fionán de Barra, Cheryl Prashker of Canada on percussion, Jake James of New York on the fiddle, and Caleb Edwards of Nashville on mandolin and vocals.

“Timeless and flawless … ” — Jim Allford, PA Music Scene

The group has been honored internationally, winning Top Group and Top Traditional Group in the Irish Music Awards and three Independent Music Awards including Best LIVE Album, Best World/Traditional Song, and Best Bluegrass Song.

In conjunction with the band’s 10-Year Anniversary Tour, RUNA released their sixth album, “TEN: The Errant Night”, on March 16th, 2019!

Receiving international praise on both sides of the Atlantic, “TEN: The Errant Night,” has been nominated for Best World/Traditional Song (“An Buachaillín Bán”) in the Independent Music Awards!

“This is RUNA’s most ambitious album yet and it is a stunner!” — Bill Margeson, LiveIreland

Additionally, to critical acclaim, the band released their first seasonal album, “The Tide of Winter”, celebrating the winter holidays in December 2020!
