Andy Irvine Meets John Doyle!
Andy Irvine Meets John Doyle is the second incarnation of our Masters in Collaboration series conceived by renowned musician-folklorist Mick Moloney to bring together new genres and generations of musicians and build a deeper musical conversation between Ireland and the United States. During a weeklong residency at IAC, legendary traditional singer-songwriter Andy Irvine and Grammy-nominee John Doyle, one of the shooting stars of contemporary American folk and roots music, will invite each other into their repertoire, allowing for exploration of their distinct musical styles and approaches to songwriting. What emerges from this dialogue will be presented in three extraordinary performances.
ALSO, on September 9 @ 8 pm, Mick Moloney will moderate a live interview with the artists. Visit the Irish Arts Center’s website for more information.
