Community Initiative Newry 2020 presents Andy Irvine in Concert
Community Initiative Newry 2020 presents Andy Irvine in Concert on Friday the 5th of June at 9pm in Newry Variety Market as part of the run up to Iúr Cinn Fleadh - Newry Music Festival in September.
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 45 year career.
From Sweeney's Men in the mid 60s, to the enormous success of Planxty in the 70s and then from Patrick Street to Andy Irvine & Dónal Lunny's Mozaik, 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 travelling lifestyle that reflect his lifelong influence, Woody Guthrie.
His repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, dexterous Balkan dances and a compelling cannon of his own self-penned songs.
The first concert of it's kind in Newry Market will be certainly one not to miss!
Gates 8pm. On stage 9pm Bar facilities available.
Tickets priced £15 can be bought online at www.iurcinnfleadh.com or from the Sugar Supper Club, Sugar Island, Newry. More information Telephone 028 3026 7805
