There have been talk of a new solo album in the pipeline & slowly some details are starting to emerge.
We know that the album was recorded in Australia with Multi-Instrumentalist & Producer Luke Plumb. Andy’s “Australian Mates” are to make an appearance (Kate Burke & Ruth Hazelton) & also features Mike McGoldrick & John McCusker. No track list as of yet, but the album is expected to launch before the end of the year to coincide with an Australian tour Andy has lined up (details below). – Watch this space!
Andy on producer Luke Plumb:
“He knows everything about my music,”“He’s not going to do anything I don’t like.”
Luke on Andy:
“In the meantime though, one of my two all time musical inspirations is trekking across the globe to record an album with me at the helm. It’s huge honour for me and a bit of a bucket list thrill to work on a recording with Andy Irvine – particularly in the context of a duo album. We’ll be launching it in Australia in the January festival period so come see us! The material is stellar in typical Andy fashion so I reckon we’re ALL in for a treat.” via LukePlumb.com
