ORONO — Caladh Nua, band with deep roots in Ireland, will perform at 8 p.m. Friday, March 17, at the Collins Center for the Arts at the University of Maine.

The five versatile singers also play banjo, fiddle, guitar, bodhran, tin whistle and button accordion. And with a long list of TV and radio appearances and three albums, the band is as accomplished off-stage as it is on.

For centuries, Ireland’s musicians have been inspired and nurtured by the sounds and swells of the windblown island. Caladh Nua embraces that heritage and incorporates its own innovative flair.

Ticket cost $21 for balcony seats, $26 for orchestra seats or $7 for K-12 students.
