For more than forty years, Andy Irvine has been a world music pioneer and icon for traditional music and musicians. A founder member of bands such as Sweeney’s Men, Planxty, Patrick Street, Mozaik, and now Usher’s Island he has been hailed as “a tradition in himself” (Irish Press).

“Andy Irvine’s solo stage show is a musical travelogue through time and space. His right hand dexterity on bouzouki was nothing short of amazing.” Frets Magazine

Musician, singer and songwriter, few others can equal his repertoire: Irish traditional songs, dexterous Balkan dance tunes, and a compelling canon of his own material that defies description.

“Andy Irvine is Woody Guthrie’s representative on earth.” Hot Press

“His artistry is quite simply unique.” The Independent
