Text Box: Andy Irvine 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. Musician, singer, songwriter, Andy has been hailed as ‘a tradition in himself’. He was part of Sweeney’s Men in the mid ’60s, Planxty in the ’70s and then Patrick Street, Mozaik, LAPD and recently Usher’s Island — a world music pioneer and an icon for traditional music and musicians. His repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, dexterous Balkan dance tunes and a compelling cannon of his own self-penned songs.
