Andy Irvine is a true legend of Irish folk music. A brilliant singer-songwriter and master of the bouzouki and guitar, he was part of the seminal Irish band, Planxty, and more recently in Patrick Street and Mozaik.

Andy 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 and songwriter, Andy has maintained his highly individual performing skills throughout his 50 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 Mozaik, he 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 canon of his own self-penned songs.”

Ever the man for new pastures, in the last decade or so, Andy has played concerts in Moscow, Mexico City, Newfoundland, Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua as well as undertaking extensive tours of Japan, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Argentina and Chile. Although an integral part of the finest Irish bands of our time, Andy Irvine continues along the path he set for himself so long ago – a vibrant career as a solo artist in the old style, a teller of tales and maker of music.

Andy will be accompanied on this tour by the brilliant Australian multi-instrumentalist and composer, Luke Plumb, who is also a member of legendary Scottish band, Shooglenifty.

“Andy Irvine’s solo stage show is a musical travelogue through time and space. His right hand dexterity on bouzouki was nothing short of amazing.”
 – Frets Magazine

“Andy is one of the most creative and talented people it has ever been my privilege to work with. Great company, superb singer, genius of a musician, truly original songwriter and an inspiration to all of us – what more could anyone ask?” – Dick Gaughan
