Usher’s Island is a veritable supergroup with some of the most influential and acclaimed names in traditional Irish music; Dónal Lunny, Andy Irvine and Paddy Glackin link the band’s heritage back to the glory days of Planxty, Sweeney’s Men and The Bothy Band, while two of today’s leading heirs to these pioneering artists, Mike McGoldrick and John Doyle, contribute a vast experience of contemporary Celtic and other international roots styles. One would be hard pressed to dream up a better combination of instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and performer with more miles or musical accomplishment than Usher’s Island.
