Biography

Manus Lunny was born in Dublin and reared in Newbridge, Co. Kildare in a family which practiced music regularly. He has been living in Co. Donegal for many years now, close to where his mother was born in Ranafast. He toured widely with Barry Moore (now Luka Bloom) as a teenager.He was a member of Scottish/Irish band The Wild Geese which toured Ireland and performed limited concerts in Britain. After the band took a break, Lunny began to tour with Phil Cunningham and future long-term collaborator Andy M. Stewart. They toured as a trio to begin with before branching out into other bands.[1][2]

Manus is best known as a member of Celtic supergroup Capercaillie. He has composed music for the BBC and various American television broadcasters and was a prominent session musician on two of Ireland's most well known compilations, Éist and Ceol Tacsi.vision recordings.[2]

In collaboration with Phil Cunningham, Lunny has written two pieces for the American record label Windham Hill, previously owners of the infamous Windham Hill recording studios in Dublin, Ireland. Lunny's latest work includes 'Imeall', the upcoming album from Altan's Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh.[2][3]

It is also curious to notice that there is no mention of his song "Tae the weaver's gin ye go" chords on internet.
