“I didn’t realize what a big deal Caladh Nua was until I was watching a nationally televised program on PBS a few weeks ago, and there they were,” said U/CP Theater and Events Coordinator Jennifer Moore. “My jaw dropped – not just because I knew they were coming to West Plains, but also because of how amazing they sounded. They stay true to the traditional Celtic feel and lyrics of southern Ireland while throwing in a modern flair.”
You can listen to samples of their work on their web page caladhnua.com.

“There’s a reason why Ireland inspires feelings of nostalgia and familiarity among many Ozarkers, even for those of us who have never been there,” Moore said. “Many of the pioneers who settled here were Scots-Irish descendants from further east, and their influence on Ozarks culture has been tremendous. This concert kind of brings that full circle, we feel.”
