Lunasa, a traditional-yet-modern Irish quintet, is the exception to that rule. Kevin Crawford, who plays flute, whistle and bodhran, met the other members as he got on the airplane for their first tour, back in the late '90s -- a plane headed for Australia, no less.
'I did not know them before that moment,' Crawford said, calling from a tour stop on the central coast of California. 'They knew of me from other recordings and asked me to join them. So we did our first gig as Lunasa in the Blue Mountains of Australia. It was a strange beginning, but it has worked.'"
