In Celtic mythology, Danu is considered the mother of the gods. In Irish music, Danu is considered one of the top traditional bands in these modern times.
Band founders Benny McCarthy, Donal Clancy and Donnchadh Gough from Co.Waterford with Dubliner Daire Bracken first met at the Oireachtas Festival in Dungarvan,Co.Waterford in November 1994 . Within a year they were performing concerts around the world to rave reviews.
The band went through some changes over the years, including the departure and return of Donal Clancy, and the addition of its first female member, vocalist Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh from County Kerry.
Now, having performed in over 1,000 venues all over the world, Danu has grown to become one of the leading traditional Irish ensembles of the 21st century. For over a decade, Danu’s virtuosi players on flute, tin whistle, fiddle, button accordion, bouzouki, and vocals (Irish and English) have recorded seven critically acclaimed albums and won two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for best Traditional Group. Their second album Think Before You Think was voted Best Overall Traditional Act by Irish Music Magazine
