Irish folk legend Andy Irvine (ex Planxty, Sweeney's Men and more...) LIVE
Saturday, 14 April 2012 from 20:00 to 23:00 (BST)
We are delighted to welcome Andy Irvine back to Camden Square.
For more than 40 years, Andy has been a world music pioneer and icon for traditional music and musicians. Founder member of bands such as Sweeney's Men, Planxty,Patrick Street, and Mozaik, he has been hailed as " a tradition in himself."
Musician, singer and songwriter, few others can equal his repertoire: Irish traditional songs, dexterous Balkan dance tunes, and a compelling canon of his own material that defies description.
Musician, singer and songwriter, Andy has maintained both personal integrity and highly individual performing skills throughout his 40-year career.
