Andy Irvine and Paul Brady in Vicar Street
Anyone see them in Vicar Street?
They were great in a few small parts, but came across as unrehearsed in others. Frequent mistakes were annoying and showed that they just threw the gig together for a pay day. Song introduction was poor to say the least, but the most awful thing was the version of I Roved Out, where Andy sang along with Paul’s synth playing - disgraceful. When they did get it right with a few of the classics they were great. But unfortunatly this was seldom. They were obviously used to playing the classics since the 70’s, but didn’t give the other songs the practice they needed before hitting the stage. One song they had to start 3 times before they got it right!!!
