Andy Irvine will give a solo performance at Sacred Heart University's Schine Auditorium on Mon, June 9, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be sold at the door for $20.

Andy Irvine is one of the great Irish singers - his voice is one of a handful of truly great ones that gets to the very soul of Ireland. He has been hailed as "a tradition in himself." As a musician, singer and songwriter, Andy has maintained his highly individual performing skills throughout his 45-year career. From Sweeney's Men in the mid-1960s to the enormous success of Planxty in the 1970s, and from Patrick Street to Andy Irvine & Dónal Lunny's Mozaik, Andy has been a world music pioneer and an icon for traditional music and musicians. As a soloist, Andy fills the role of the archetypal troubadour with a show and a travelling lifestyle that reflect his lifelong influence, Woody Guthrie. "Often copied, never equaled," says the Irish Times. His repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, Balkan dances and compelling self-penned songs.

The Shamrock Traditional Irish Music Society, Inc. is an all-volunteer, not-for- profit educational organization. For additional information about this event, contact Tim Quinn of the Shamrock Traditional Music Society at or 203-362-5912.
