The band features Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny, both members of Planxty; Paddy Glackin, a founding member of The Bothy Band; the ubiquitous Michael McGoldrick, formerly of Lunasa and Capercaillie; and John Doyle, who has played with many of the greatest names in Irish music, including Solas, Liz Carroll, Eileen Ivers & Mary Black, not to mention driving the rhythm section of the hugely popular Transatlantic Sessions.
Talented soloists in their own right, each member of Usher’s Island offer a blend of old and young and of vocal and instrumental talents, that results in exceptional music and dynamic live performances.
