Lúnasa disturb the sleeping Geoff McArthur, Martin Hayes bewitches him, and hey presto - Geoff falls in love with Irish music. We also talk songwriting, teaching and mentoring young musicians at the Lake School of Celtic Music Song & Dance in Koroit. And he sings a song and makes us cry. Can’t ask for more than that.
