Andy Irvine and Luke Plumb

Ireland & Australia

The collaboration between the legendary Andy Irvine (Sweeney’s Men/Patrick Street/Planxy/Mozaik) and mandolin maestro Luke Plumb (Shooglenifty) is one of the most thrilling in recent times and resulted in the wonderful 2016 studio album Precious Heroes. Andy has been an icon of the international folk scene for more than 40 years and Luke has established a reputation as a driving force on the global stage in acoustic music. This show is the 2018 Louis McManus Memorial Concert. No one captured the ‘heart and soul’ of Brunswick Music Festival more than Louis McManus, who passed away in 2004 and this concert honours his legacy.

With special guest to be announced.

“[Andy Irvine is] one of the towering talents on the international folk scene.”
