I: Andy Irvine
The Black Horse, Amberley
October 2010

Andy Irvine is the special guest of The Amberley Folk Club which meets regularly at The Black Horse Pub, Amberley, West Sussex. His music and songs span a wonderfully eclectic range and this 10 minute video shows exactly that with him using three different and unusual instruments: his Stefan Sobell Bouzouki, shaped like a guitar, his Stefan Sobell Mandola and his Bass Bouzouki built by Davy Stuart. Andy’s playing and accompaniment on these instruments is fascinating to hear and view and his songs are both enchanting and colourful keeping his audience totally attentive and happy. All the songs here are Andy’s with the exception of The Close Shave which was by Bob Bickerton. Keep up with all Andy’s news at his official website which is at www.andyirvine.com and check out his lovely new CD “Abocurragh” Thanks Andy for your inspiration over all these years!
