The Legend Plays On
Review of Andy Irvine Concert 24th February 2007
Folk legend Andy Irvine returned to our shores and what a privilege it was to be there. This man has such a folk pedigree. Originally with Sweeny’s Men, then the seminal band Planxty and one of the main guests at the Auckland Folk Festival 2000.
Janet Thomson gave us a wonderful set to start the concert and this was also a rare chance to hear a very polished performer. Thanks Janet.
Then we were in the company of Andy for the remainder of the evening. His sets were certainly thought provoking with a good mix of humour, traditional and self penned tunes and songs. It is something special when you get to hear such expressive and intricate playing of bouzouki and mandola…………. nope Andy didn’t play guitar.
By the end of the evening many of us realised we had seen and heard something quite special. Can’t wait until he returns.
