Quilty & Andy Irvine

The Best of the House, Sverigeturné 2023

Quilty planerar nu ett spännande konsertsamarbete med en av Irlands största folkmusik-ikoner: Andy Irvine!
Irvines innovativa tolkningar av de traditionella irländska folkvisorna och hans lyriska spel på mandolin och bouzouki har
blivit stilbildande för flera generationer av folkmusiker, inte bara på Irland utan världen över.
2023 fyller Quilty 30 år och vi kan inte tänka oss ett bättre sätt att fira än att få spela tillsammans med denna legendar! I vårt
musikaliska möte vill vi hylla Andy Irvines livsgärning som musiker och låtskrivare.
Med konsertprogrammet The Best of the House vågar vi utlova en synnerligen livgivande musikalisk fest!

With this project we want to pay tribute to Irvine’s life achievement as a musician and songwriter. With the concert headline The Best of the House, we promise a particularly life-giving musical celebration!
