    Default Andy Irvine / Paul Brady

    So this is happening in Ireland and Scotland next year. I'm hoping to grab tickets tomorrow morning. https://set.ie/event/paul-brady-and-andy-irvine/

    I have to admit Andy Irvine's approach to mandolin and bouzouki is something I aspire to.

    Paul, do not see any Scottish venues on your link, just Kilkenny, but maybe there is something I have missed?

    Funny what youthful pictures they chose for the website.

    Sorry John, I saw a poster online for the whole tour with at least one Scottish date and one Northern Ireland date, but can't find it now. All I see now are Irish dates. Donal Lunny and Kevin Burke are joining them too.

    I saw them a while back at The Barbican and it was a real highlight. Memories that will stay with me forever. To hear Brady sing “Arthur McBride” live after all these years was monumental. And to hear him play “Sailing Into Walpole’s Marsh” on mandolin was nothing short of inspirational.

    Both Brady and Irvine were warm, funny, engaging. (Brady has a reputation for being a little aloof from time to time; definitely not aloof the night I saw him. Genuinely humble and utterly connected to the audience, I would have said.)

    The only drawback for me was that Kevin Burke didn’t have an opportunity to take the lead on a few sets. I know the night was all about Andy and Paul but what a shame that Burke couldn’t have had 15 minutes or so to play three or four sets. That big E Minor set of his, for example, or some of his old Bothy Band sets. That would have been electric. But - a mere quibble; that would simply have been *more* icing on a very rich cake.

    I don't see any Scottish gigs either (nor, alas, venues anywhere near me), but as far as I can see the following four dates have been announced:

    14th March: Kilkenny TradFest, The Hub, Kilkenny
    16th March: Royal Theatre, Castlebar, Co. Mayo
    18th March: Vicar St., Dublin
    19th March: Waterfront Hall, Belfast
