LINCOLN, NEB. – The Lied Center for Performing Arts at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will present Celtic music ensemble Danu Saturday, March 9, 2013 at 7:30 PM.

Danu is one of the leading traditional Irish ensembles today. Hailing from Waterford, Ireland, the seven member group performs a high-energy mix of ancient Irish music and new repertoire.

The Lied Center’s 23rd Season is supported by Friends of Lied, Ameritas and Union Bank. All events in the Lied Center are made possible entirely or in part by the Lied Performance Fund, established in memory of Ernst F. Lied and his parents, Ernst M. and Ida K. Lied.
