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.

Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, raconteur, Andy Irvinehas been “one of the towering talents on the international folk scene” (Sydney Morning Herald) 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 Andy Irvine & Paul Brady to Patrick Street & 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.

His repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, dexterous Balkan dances and a compelling canon of his own self-penned songs.

Whether as a solo artist or as the linchpin of a celebrated group his breath-taking musicianship has produced one acclaimed album after another and cemented his reputation as an unrivalled balladeer.
