Irish traditional music ensemble Bua performs in concert

Irish traditional music ensemble Bua returns to Bellingham at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 23, at the YWCA ballroom, 1025 N. Forest St.

Based in Chicago, Bua “keeps the music down the path of tradition” while still being able to “raise the rafters with their playing, charm with their singing, and delight with their contemporary energy.”

The Bluegrass Situation has lauded their recent album, “Down the Green Fields,” as a testament, from beginning to end, of the lasting essentials of the Irish tradition.
