He will mark his 80th birthday with a show at Vicar Street Dublin on Monday, June 20th this year.

"10 years ago I played two gigs there for my 70th birthday with a couple of bands,” Irvine added. “Sweeney’s Man, Mosaik, and LAPD with Paddy Glackin and Liam O’Flynn. That gig was a great success. We put it together on a CD and on a DVD, and I don’t see why I shouldn’t do it again for my 80th. Then I’d be looking forward to my 90th!”

Then in November, Andy Irvine and Paul Brady will be touring (with Donal Lunny and Kevin Burke) to celebrate their classic album of 1977.

Will he never tire of the road? The album has been remastered and released on CD and purple vinyl. And during lockdown Andy has recorded an album of songs by his great hero Woody Guthrie, which will be released in due course.
