Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny

Legends of Irish Music

Sat 23 Sep 2017 8PM Main Auditorium // €22 / €20 conc

Two giants of the Irish trad scene, Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny are uniting for an evening of great music, a mixture of traditional songs, some Eastern European music 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. Andy and Donal, in their separate ways, have contributed to a veritable renaissance in Irish traditional music. Between them, they have careers that read like a 'Who's Who' of popular music, having both played with or produced music with a variety of artists from Paul Brady, Christy Moore, Bill Whelan and Davy Spillane to Elvis Costello, Clannad, Eddi Reader and Diana Krall.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to see these two legends of Irish music on stage together at Draíocht.
