Andy Irvine

Musician, singer and songwriter Andy Irvine is one of the great Irish singers - his voice is one of a handful of truly great ones that gets to the very soul of Ireland.

Andy has maintained his highly individual performing skills throughout his over 50-year career. From the seminal Sweeney's Men in the mid-60s, to the enormous success of Planxty in the 70s, his duo with Paul Brady in the later 70s, and then from Patrick Street to Mozaik, LAPD and Usher’s Island -  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. Quoted by The Irish Times as ‘often copied, never equalled’, his repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, dexterous Balkan dances, and a compelling canon of his own self-penned songs.

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.
