Andy Irvine in concert, Meow cafe, Saturday 1 February, 7.30pm

Andy Irvine is one of the great Irish singers.  Hailed as “a tradition in himself”, the musician, singer and songwriter has maintained his highly individual performing skills throughout his over 50-year career. 
 
From Sweeney’s Men in the mid 60s, to the enormous success of Planxty in the 70s, Andy’s duo with Paul Brady in the later 70’s 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. To quote the Irish Times, “Often copied, never equalled”, his repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, dexterous Balkan dance tunes and a compelling canon of his own self-penned songs.
