The band RÚN (Rún -- from Gaelic: secret, intention, motion (of a dialog); in the word-combination a rún -- my love, my dear) was founded in 2001 as a result of its members' "Celtic mania" and their striving for creative activity.
"Since then we perform traditional music of Celtic peoples in the form it exists nowadays, focusing primarily on Irish music.e study the authentic performance manner and try to play our repertoire on traditional instruments."
RÚN works in close cooperation with Kiev Irish and Scottish dance schools, organizes joint performances and folk dance master-classes.
RÚN is a friend of ecological NGOs organizations and willingly participates in their actions.
