Named after one of the medieval quays along the River Liffey in Dublin, Usher’s Island is a brand-new supergroup uniting two generations of trailblazing Irish musicians, performing here together for the very first time.

The revered figures of Donal Lunny, Andy Irvine and Paddy Glackin link the band’s heritage right back to the glory days of Planxty, the Bothy Band, Moving Hearts, Mozaik and other seminal boundary-crossers, while two of today’s leading heirs to these pioneering artists, Mike McGoldrick and John Doyle, contribute their vast experience of contemporary Celtic and other international roots styles.
