Andy Irvine has performed for 45 years, first with Sweeney’s Men in the mid 60s, then the enormous success of Planxty in the 70s and then from Patrick Street to Andy Irvine & Dónal Lunny’s Mozaik, he has remained both a pioneer and an icon for traditional music and musicians.
Mick Blake is a musician and activist from Co. Leitrim, who has risen to prominence through the songs and videos he has created about austerity in Ireland. Most recently, his song ‘Oblivious,’ about the cracks and flaws in Ireland’s political system, has been recorded by Christy Moore.
Dave Lordan is a renowned writer, teacher and editor and the first writer to have won all three of Ireland’s national prizes for young poets. He is the founder and editor of ‘Bogman’s Cannon.”
