Irish Music on Tour - ANDY MARTYN JOHN CARTY GINO LUPARI MATT GRIFFIN
Time & Location
About The Event
Four of the finest virtuoso performers in Irish traditional music today come together in a preview performance of Andy Martyn’s forthcoming album Will We Give it a Go? • Andy Martyn is a London Irish virtuoso of the button accordion whose distinctive style and mix of music is heavily influenced by his East Galway family and by the many musicians with whom he has gained renown through musical collaborations • John Carty is one of Ireland’s finest traditional musicians and, having developed his mastery of the fiddle, banjo and flute, has been awarded TG4’s Traditional Musician of the Year and produced a number of albums that have been described as milestones in Irish traditional music, including The Wavy Bow Collection with James Carty released in 2020. • Gino Lupari is one of the most respected bodhran players and singers on the road today and has performed all over the world as a founding member of the internationally acclaimed band Four Men & A Dog • Matt Griffin is a highly talented multi-instrumentalist based on Kerry’s Dingle Peninsula. He learned much of his music within the vibrant Irish traditional music community in London and has since immersed himself in both the music of Sliabh Luachra and West Kerry and the guitar stylings of Arty McGlynn and Steve Cooney. This powerful line up of masters of their art brings together well over 100 years of collective acclaim in Irish Traditional Music. They are only playing 2 gigs in the UK this year and Salisbury is lucky to be one of them. A great night of music and song is in store! £2.50 from each ticket will go to Salisbury Hospice.
