World music pioneer at Orange Tree
ONE of the great Irish singers will be performing in Baldock next month.
Musician, singer and songwriter Andy Irvine can claim to be a pioneer of world music and has been hailed as “a tradition in himself” after a 45 year career performing his own highly individual style.
His playing and singing with Sweeney’s Men in the mid 60s, Planxty in the 70s, Patrick Street and with D�nal Lunny’s and their Mozaik, Andy has become
icon for traditional music and musicians around the world.
Band booker Alan Hewson said: “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.
You may also want to watch:
His repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, dexterous Balkan dances and a compelling cannon of his own self-penned songs. Andy has been a regular visitor to Baldock & Letchworth Music Live since its inception in 1999. Perhaps one of Ireland’s finest musical ambassadors as well as a first class musician and singer, Andy is also a truly engaging performer and a thoroughly nice chap!”
Andy Irvine returns to The Orange Tree on Wednesday April 18.
