Andy & Luke Lauded as masters of the bouzouki and mandolin, the legendary Andy Irvine (Patrick Street/Planxty/Mozaik) combines with the brilliance of Luke Plumb (Shooglenifty) to present one of the most anticipated collaborations in recent times. The duo brings with them a new studio album featuring original and traditional songs and bearing all the hallmarks of iconic folk and traditional music.
Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, raconteur, Andy Irvine has been “one of the towering talents on the international folk scene” (Sydney Morning Herald) for more than 40 years. Whether as a solo artist or as the linchpin of celebrated groups such as Sweeney’s Men, Patrick Street, Planxty or Mozaik, his breathtaking musicianship has produced one acclaimed album after another and cemented his reputation as an unrivalled balladeer. “Often mimicked, never equalled” – Irish Times
He will perform as a part of Exile: Songs & Tales of Irish Australia, and also perform concerts with Australia’s own Luke Plumb.
