Andy Irvine and Don Baker

Andy Irvine and Don Baker

Friday, 15 September 2017, 7.00pm

An intimate evening with two of Ireland’s legendary troubadours…

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, songwriter, Andy has honed his highly individual performing skills over a 45-year career.

Often copied but never equalled, his repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, dexterous Balkan dances and a compelling cannon of his own self-penned songs.

DON BAKER is a singer-songwriter from Dublin who also plays the harmonica and the guitar. He appeared in several films, his most notable appearance being in In the Name of the Father and On the Nose. He has published harmonica instruction books and videos. While Baker is already acknowledged as one of the top blues harmonica players in the world, another key feature of his recently released album; My Songs, My Friends is the quality of his guitar playing and the range and depth of his songwriting.
