Traditional Irish Music
Following the very quick sell out of Andy's first show on 16th June 2012 a second Andy Irvine show has since been added on June 17th 2012. It will be a very special night indeed as it is an evening of celebration to for Andy's 7oth birthday. The concert will also feature Sweeney’s Men, Paul Brady, Dónal Lunny, Liam O’Flynn, Paddy Glackin & Mosaic. This will take place at Vicar Street, Dublin on Saturday the 16th of June 2012. Tickets start from €35 including booking fee and are on sale now through Ticketmaster and usual outlets nationwide.
ANDY IRVINE is one of the great Irish singers, his voice one of a handful of truly great ones that gets to the very soul of Ireland. He has been hailed as "a tradition in himself". Musician, singer, songwriter, Andy has maintained his highly individual performing skills throughout his 45 year career.
From Sweeney's Men in the mid 60s, to the enormous success of Planxty in the 70s and then from Patrick Street to Andy Irvine & Dónal Lunny's Mozaik, Andy has been a world music pioneer and an icon for traditional music and musicians.
As a soloist, Andy fills the role of the archetypal troubadour with a show and a travelling lifestyle that reflect his lifelong influence, Woody Guthrie. To quote the Irish Times, "Often copied, never equalled", his repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, dexterous Balkan dances and a compelling cannon of his own self-penned songs.
