Andy Irvine & Donal Lunny return to Newbridge for a historical gig in the Town Hall.
June Fest is delighted to bring two giants of the Irish trad scene, Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny, together for a historic show in Newbridge Town Hall. The legendary pairing will unite for an evening of great music, a mixture of traditional songs, and originals.
Neither musician are strangers to Newbridge - it being Lunnys hometown and Irvine having played many a memorable show here - but this will be a reunion with added history, this being their first time playing in Newbridge Town Hall since the days of Planxty.
Between them, Irvine and Lunny have been at the helm of legendary bands like Planxty, Sweeneys Men, The Bothy Band, Mozaik, LAPD and recently Usher's Island. Their unique style of accompaniment is an ongoing influence in the wider world of Irish music. This promises to be a memorable night from two of the Irish trad scenes living legends. One not to be missed.
