Wednesday 25th April 2012

"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. He has been hailed as "a tradition in himself." Musician, singer and songwriter, Andy has maintained his highly individual performing skills 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 Patrick Street to Andy Irvine & Dónal Lunny's 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.
To quote The Irish Times, "Often copied, never equalled", his repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, dexterous Balkan dances and a compelling canon of his own self-penned songs."

Pleasance Cabaret Bar at 20.00

£10, £8, £6(members)

Unfortunately, there is unlikely to be very much mandolin playing if any as he doesn't do so much of this in his live gigs these days.

Also, he is not usually the happiest of souls but his work is still enjoyed by many.....

We've already had quite a few reservations for this one and it might be a good idea to reserve tickets with The Paddy One at e.bort (AT) ed.ac.uk
