Presented by Folk in the Barn, in association with Gulbenkian
Featuring Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny, Paddy Glackin, Michael McGoldrick and John Doyle.
Usher’s Island sees the coming together of five of the most acclaimed and influential names in Irish Traditional music – Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny, both members of Planxty, Paddy Glackin, a founding member of The Bothy Band, the ubiquitous Michael McGoldrick, formerly of Lunasa and Capercaillie, and John Doyle who has played with many of the greatest names in Irish music, including Solas, Liz Carroll, Eileen Ivers & Mary Black, not to mention driving the rhythm section of the hugely popular Transatlantic Sessions.
Each member of Usher’s Island is a talented soloist in their own right, but in this new band they offer a blend of old and young and of vocal and instrumental talents that results in exceptional music and dynamic live performances.
