Folk Giants

Bray People - - THENOTEBOOK WICKLOW -

TWO giants of Ir­ish trad and folk, Donal Lunny and Andy Irvine re­turn to Bray's Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre on Fri­day 11 Jan­uary for a fan­tas­tic ses­sion.

The fol­low­ing night, Satur­day Jan­uary 12, song­writer Paddy Casey will take to the Mer­maid stage, then the fol­low­ing week the leg­endary Bren­dan Shine will come to Bray.

Irvine and Lunny be­tween them have been part of leg­endary bands like Planxty, Sweeney's Men, Pa­trick Street, The Bothy Band and Mov­ing Hearts as well as col­lab­o­rat­ing with great artists in­clud­ing Elvis Costello, Kate Bush and Paul Brady. Paddy Casey, singer-song­writer ex­traor­di­naire, makes his first ap­pear­ance at Mer­maid on Satur­day Jan­uary 12.

Fans can look for­ward to a mix of old and new songs sung with Casey's trade­mark clar­ity, pu­rity and pas­sion which have de­fined his live per­for­mances for over a decade. His long awaited fourth al­bum, The Se­cret Life Of was re­leased in Novem­ber 2012 .
