Andy Irvine and Paul Brady will bring back their album anniversary tour next March.
Due to demand, Andy Irvine and Paul Brady have added another Vicar St date to their album anniversary tour. The second gig will take place on March 15, three days before the sold-out show.
Tickets (priced €46.50) will go on sale this Friday, November 29, at 9am.
The tour celebrates Irvine and Brady’s now classic and iconic self-titled album of folk song and traditional music which was released in 1977. They will tour Kilkenny, Mayo, Dublin and Belfast.
In May 2017 they decided, due to the albums’ still immense popularity, to do an Irish tour of live shows marking the 40th anniversary of its release. It was so successful that it was repeated in 2018 taking it to sold out events in Ireland, London and Prague.
The show features songs and tunes from the album and many other musical masterpieces that Andy and Paul have performed throughout both of their illustrious careers and, as on the previous tours, they will be accompanied by Dónal Lunny and Kevin Burke both of whom were players on the original album recording, Dónal also acted as producer on the original recording.
