Fairlight Folk Acoustic Lounge
3 William Street

Andy Irvine & Rens van der Zalm

Coming up at Fairlight Folk Acoustic Lounge on 14th August:

  • Andy Irvine & Rens van der Zalm - 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".From Sweeney's Men in the mid 60s, to the enormous success of Planxty in the 70s and then from Patrick Street to Andy Irvine & Dónal Lunny's Mozaik. Musician, singer, songwriter, Andy has maintained his highly individual performing skills throughout his 45 year career. Rens van der Zalm is a musician of multiple talents: he is not only a skilled guitarist, but is equally accomplished on the fiddle, mandolin, keyboards, accordion and whistle. Rens' instrumental skills are combined with an ability to apply his expertise to a wide variety of musical styles Tied up as they both are with their respective careers, Rens and Andy's personal and musical friendship has become so compelling that Rens regularly reserves time to accompany Andy in the studio and on tour.
  • Folklore - Rosie McDonald from 'Mothers of Intention' & 'RAPT' on guitar, Anthony Woolcott from 'Triantan' on bodhran, Para Celtic harpist Cliona Molins & Fiona McVicar on Irish traditional fiddle. These musical wanderers play a mix of traditional and contemporary folk with great harmonies and a whole lot of love for good music and good company - letting the music and verse tell their stories and take us to a timeless place.
