Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny and Paddy Glackin

21st September 2018 @ 9:00 pm

Two giants of the Irish trad scene, Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny, unite for an evening of great music, featuring celebrated fiddle player Paddy Glackin and a mixture of traditional songs and originals composed by Andy. Between them, Andy and Donal have been at the helm of legendary bands like Sweeney’s Men, Planxty, The Bothy Band, Mozaik, LAPD and, recently, Usher’s Island. Their unique style of accompaniment is an ongoing influence in the wider world of Irish music.

Donal Lunny has produced albums for Elvis Costello, Paul Brady, Clannad, and The Indigo Girls, and performed on more than a dozen Christy Moore albums.

Andy Irvine is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter with several solo albums. He has played and recorded with Paul Brady, Christy Moore, Bill Whelan and Davy Spillane, and in Dublin with Billy Bragg, celebrating the Woody Guthrie Centenary.

Paddy Glackin, a founding member of Bothy Band, is regarded as one of Ireland’s leading traditional fiddle players. Paddy is also a noted commentator and lecturer on Irish music, and in demand as a session player and a senior producer in RTÉ Radio.
