  • Title: About Andy Irvine
    Descriptive info: AndyIrvine.. com.. About Andy.. Calendar.. Recordings.. Booking.. Links.. ANDY IRVINE.. is one of the great Irish singers, his voice one of a handful of truly great ones that gets to the very soul of Ireland.. He has been hailed as a tradition in himself.. Musician, singer, songwriter, Andy has maintained his highly individual performing skills throughout his 45 year career.. From.. Sweeney's Men.. in the mid 60s, to the enormous success of.. Planxty.. in the 70s and then from.. to.. Andy Irvine Dónal Lunny's Mozaik.. , Andy has been a world music pioneer and an icon for traditional music and musicians.. As a soloist, Andy fills the role of the archetypal troubadour with a show and a travelling lifestyle that reflect his lifelong influence, Woody Guthrie.. To quote the Irish Times, Often copied, never equalled , his repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, dexterous Balkan dances and a compelling cannon of his own self-penned songs.. Andy's History :.. Chapter 1: 21 Years A-growin.. Chapter 2: Dublin in the Early 1960s.. Chapter 3: Sweeney's Men.. Chapter 4: The Balkans to Planxty.. Chapter 5: End of Planxty, De Dannan, Paul Brady, Mick Hanly.. Chapter 6: Planxty Reforms.. Chapter 7: Planxty Postscript; Mosaic.. Chapter 8: Birth of Patrick Street, Solo Tours.. Chapter 9: East Wind, Australia to Present Day.. Andy's Instruments :.. My main instruments have been made for some years by.. Stefan Sobell.. in Northumberland in the North of England.. After playing bouzoukis, mandolas and mandolins made by him, about twenty five years ago, I decided I wanted a rounder, warmer sound for my bouzouki and we came to the conclusion that a bigger body was the answer.. Rather than have a very large tear drop shaped body, I opted for the guitar shape which is easier to hold.. A lot of people who do not know me think it's a guitar, unfortunately!.. Well, I suppose it could be called an eight string guitar! (Maybe if I called it that, I might get booked at Guitar Festivals.. ?).. Very little remains of the original Greek bouzouki but it has four courses of double strings - like the modern Greek bouzouki and was originally based on the Greek bouzouki, so we still call them bouzoukis (except when Greeks are present.. !).. I tune it GDAD.. I also play a mandola made for me by Stefan about thirty years ago (tuned DAEA).. It has recently undergone a re-building programme.. Namely, a new top.. Any instrument takes a while to recover from such interference, especially having a whole new sounding board.. It has made a pretty quick recovery though and is back at the head of the queue!.. While I was waiting for it's repair which took nearly a year, I played another Sobell mandola that I had traded  ...   who built it, spared no effort to make it a brilliant instrument.. It is so beautiful to look at, I hardly can believe my eyes when I take it out of it's case.. It sounds great too and I am practicing hard to get used to its slightly thinner neck.. I get my harmonicas specially built by.. Antony Dannecker.. of Lincolnshire, UK.. He uses Hohner parts and his own ingenuity and I am currently using his Dannecker Blues harp, though I have to ask him to put different cover plates on, so that it will fit into a harmonica holder.. I use a harmonica holder that I have had for over 50 years! God knows how I never lost it! It was given to me by Rambling Jack Elliot at the time I was learning how to play.. He also gave me the crucial information that Woody Guthrie used to play the harp upside down!!.. Apparently so did the southern blues players of that period.. There is no dis/advantage in this but I'm glad I learned to play it upside down like Woody! Jack played it the normal way.. I also have a few old favourites like the Suzuki Pro Master 350V harmonica in G.. I am currently using Highlander pick ups in my Sobell bouzouki and mandola.. The new Yairi has a Fishman Matrix.. I have no idea which is better.. -.. Andy writes in October 2012.. Andy's journal :.. June 2012 - The Woody 100 Concert.. June 2012 - Andy's 70th Birthday gig at Vicar St..

  • Title: Andy Irvine Select Discography
    Descriptive info: The pages below contain Andy's (almost) complete discography.. Some of these titles can be purchased through the web site!!.. Andy Irvine.. (solo and collaborative projects).. Through all the years of playing with various bands, Andy has maintained his individualism and singular passion for songs and music that stretch the boundaries of traditional music.. Whether it be blending Eastern and Western European traditional music together; carrying the immigrant and exile songs of the Irish diaspora back to Ireland and around the world; or being a persistent voice for social justice and a reminder of the joys and sorrows throughout our human experience, Andy has always stood apart.. Often called a tradition all his own, he defies classification and categorization other than as a musician strongly rooted in the traditional music of all people.. MOZAIK is Andy's baby, and it's blossomed into one precocious toddler in the past five years.. It's the multicultural equivalent of Planxty.. Bronx fiddler and banjo  ...   mandolin and guitar - and a quintessential Dutch attention to forensic detail in his melody lines.. On the front end of the folk revival movement in Ireland, Sweeney's Men helped shape a generation of music that was defining a new identity and pride for traditional music.. Sweeney's Men is considered a seminal band for it's unique presentation of traditional ballads, pub songs and tunes, juxtaposed with American folk songs of hard times and social justice.. After laying the foundation with Sweeney's Men, Planxty was the next natural progression.. Considered the great Irish-folk group of the 70's and early 80's, Planxty helped popularize Irish traditional music in Europe and America.. What can be said about Patrick Street except that they are some of the best of the best in Irish traditional music.. It started as a grand project to bring four masters together for a single tour, but that was over twenty years, many tours and ten albums ago..

  • Title: Andy&Paul album
    Descriptive info: Now you can get this album online by Paypal or credit card.. Price €17.. (including shipping costs).. 1976.. There was a great sense of relief among the band members when Planxty broke up in November 1975.. We were tired out and had no inspiration left.. After a short period, the relief began to turn into a slight fear as to what we would do without Planxty!.. Paul Brady --- who had been in the band for about 16 months - and I had formed a very good working relationship and we decided to continue as a duo.. We started slowly.. On February 7th 1976 we played our first gig in The merriman Tavern in Scarriff, Co.. Clare where Planxty had been a huge sell out over the years.. We had a very small crowd and earned £80! However, things improved quite rapidly.. We rehearsed long and hard, usually in the house I was living in, in Donnybrook, Dublin.. After a pretty good gig in Liberty Hall, Dublin, we never looked back!.. Mulligan Records had started a few months before and approached us to make an LP at Rockfield Studios in Wales where The Bothy Band had recorded their first album.. Dónal Lunny was to produce it and he and I got stranded on Shirkin Island off  ...   together in the studio.. I recorded three different drones on the hurdy gurdy and we cross faded them on the mix to fit the chords.. It's very subtle and you may not hear it but I thought it gave it a great feeling.. The another memory I have is of Paul spending a morning trying to get Arthur McBride and the Sergeant recorded to his liking.. He recorded one nearly perfect take but when we listned back to it, we heard him sing.. Says Arthur we wouldn't be.. froud.. of your clothes.. ! Nowadays that could easily be corrected but not in those far off days and he had to do the whole song again!.. The album was released, quite near Christmas in 1976 as far as I remember.. It has been regarded as a classic ever since and Paul and myself played through our entire duo repertoire at a special concert in Glasgow Royal Concert Hall to commemorate this album in January 2008.. Andy wrote in September 2010.. Donal Lunny.. Special guest:.. Track list: (click titles for 30-sec sample).. Plains of Kildare.. Lough Erne Shore.. Fred Finn's Reel/Sailing into Walpole's Marsh.. Bonny Woodhall.. Arthur Mcbride.. The Jolly Soldier/Blarney Pilgrim.. Autumn Gold.. Mary and the Soldier.. Streets of Derry.. 10.. Martinmas Time/The Little Stack of Wheat..
