The Seanchai Sessions is delighted to announce that legendary Irish entertainer Andy Irvine will perform Sunday, July 28th at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $30 plus HST.
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 maintained his highly individual performing skills throughout his over 50-year career.
Andy has been at the helm of legendary bands like Sweeney’s Men in the mid-60s, to the enormous success of Planxty in the 70s, and then Patrick Street, Mozaik, LAPD and recently Usher’s Island. 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 traveling lifestyle that reflect his lifelong influence, Woody Guthrie. To quote the Irish Times, “Often copied, never equaled”, his repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, dexterous Balkan dance tunes and a compelling canon of his own self-penned songs.
ALL TICKETS WILL BE HELD AT THE DOOR UNLESS OTHERWISE REQUESTED. THIS IS AN INTIMATE VENUE OF ONLY 70 SEATS. DOORS OPEN AT 6PM – SEATING IS OPEN.
