The band brings a new, quirky and fresh Irish sound to the stage. It consists of singer and dancer Emer Dunne, guitarist, Simon Graydon and champion musicians, Robert and James Harvey on Flute and Banjo/Mandolin.

They have already performed in the Cobblestones music venue, the Balcony Theatre and Mulligans Irish music venue in Amsterdam among other pubs and venues around the midlands.

Emer’s first acoustic solo album, ‘Another Land’, was launched by RTE Television’s Mary Fanning, into the Midlands and it was received with great success. A talented songwriter, Emer recently had one of her own songs ‘Untold Story’ featured on TV3. Although Emer can sing various genres of music, much of her roots were steeped in Irish music, song and dance. She joined forces with three talented musicians to form Emer Dunne & Drua. Tickets for this gig are E10 and it is a night not to be missed!
