Interview: The Music and Travels of Andy Irvine


Andy Irvine is a world music pioneer and an icon for traditional music and musicians. Although an integral part of the finest Irish bands of our time, including Sweeney’s Men in the mid 60s, Planxty in the 70s, his duo with Paul Brady in the later 70s, as well as Patrick Street, Mozaik, LAPD and Usher’s Island, Andy Irvine continues along the path he set for himself so long ago – a vibrant career as a solo artist in the old style, a teller of tales and maker of music. In this episode, Andy talks about his upcoming Woody Guthrie album, his travels, and his music. Andy performed at the 2018 St. John’s Folk Festival.

Update from Andy: Gigs with Lunny & RTE Radio Appearance


 I'm just coming to the end of a long, long tour of UK and Germany. 43 gigs in 59 days. It's been great but the number of kilometres driven would astonish ....even me! Have day off today!
Under some pressure to publicise forthcoming gigs with Donal Lunny!! 
We are playing THE MAGISTORIUM in South Anne Street in Dublin on 1st December and would love to see a full house! Ditto for FOXFORD WOOLEN MILLS on December 3rd. While I'm at it, tune into RTE on November 30th at 4pm and hear us playing a couple of songs and talking about the latest Planxty release. More happening the following week but I'll give this a rest for the moment.

SOMADRONE – Autumn Gold

Irish Producer Somadrone has been making electronic music since 1997 and has toured Europe, US, Asia and Australia as member of Dublin’s cult band Redneck Manifesto and Jape. His last record, Depth of Field received critical acclaim and was compared to the likes of Ryuichi Sakamoto, David Sylvian and Brian Eno. The First Wave, recorded between 2010-2013 in San Francisco, Dublin and Brooklyn NY, the record incorporates analogue drum machines, synthesizers, guitar and vocals that results in a cross pollinating, genre-less, electronic sound-scape.

“The giants of 20th century minimal composition — Philip Glass and Steve Reich – are obvious influences here, but O’Connor is no mere copyist” – Irish Independent 4/5.

“Detachment that we find in Steve Reich or Brian Eno circa Music for Airports” – Wire Magazine
