Andy Irvine & Dónal Lunny

Two giants of the Irish trad scene, Andy Irvine and Dónal Lunny are uniting for an evening of great music; a mixture of traditional songs and originals. Andy Irvine has just taken home a Lifetime Achievement Award at the RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards 2018.
 
Between them, Irvine and Lunny 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 Irvine and Dónal Lunny, in their separate ways, have contributed to a veritable renaissance in Irish traditional music. Between them, Dónal Lunny and Andy Irvine have careers that read like a "Who's Who" of popular music.
 
Lunny and Irvine will present a programme of Irish music and Andy's songs with a bit of Eastern European music. Don't miss this unique opportunity to see these two legends of Irish music on stage together at Pavilion Theatre.
