Usher's Island

Featuring Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny, Paddy Glackin, Michael McGoldrick and John Doyle

Usher’s Island sees the coming together of five of the most acclaimed and influential names in Irish traditional music - Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny, both members of Planxty; Paddy Glackin, a founding member of The Bothy Band; the ubiquitous Michael McGoldrick, formerly of Lunasa and Capercaillie; and John Doyle, who has played with many of the greatest names in Irish music, including Solas, Liz Carroll, Eileen Ivers & Mary Black, not to mention driving the rhythm section of the hugely popular Transatlantic Sessions.

Talented soloists in their own right, each member of Usher’s Island offer a blend of old and young and of vocal and instrumental talents, that results in exceptional music and dynamic live performances.

This evening performance will consist of two sets with an interval. The 2.30pm performance will consist of one set - book tickets for the matinee performance here.

8% administrative fee applies to most telephone/online orders (excluding Schools Concerts). Postage is included in this fee. More information about booking fees.
