Donal Lunny and Andy Irivine
Donal Lunny and Andy Irvine Information
Milwaukee Irish Fest is pleased to welcome back two Irish folk music legends, Donal Lunny and Andy Irvine. Both have been at the forefront of Irish traditional songs and music for more than 40 years. In 1972, Lunny and Irvine, along with Christy Moore and Liam O'Flynn, formed the group Planxty. Lunny later joined the Bothy Band and Moving Hearts and Irvine joined Patrick Street. These bands were the leading proponents of Irish traditional music for decades. Over the years the live concerts, collaborations and recordings of both Donal and Andy have influenced hundreds of aspiring musicians around the world. It is safe to say, as did the Irish Times, they will be "often copied. - never equaled."
