With his dazzling mix of stories and song, from traditional Irish to dexterous Balkan dance tunes, Andy Irvine never fails to deliver a pulsating, heartfelt performance.

With eleven albums and numerous other guest appearances under his belt, Luke has cemented his standing in the world of mandolin players.

The Latchikos

Credited as the originators of “Gyp-Hop” (Gaelic gypsy hip-hop), the Latchikos blend together a raw mix of virtuoso violin, spoken word and raw, driving Gaelic beats. Behind this innovation is Aindrias de Staic, a traditional Irish fiddler whose musical path got waylaid by hard-living. But while busking in Australia, he was introduced to new genres and approaches to music, and that, in combination with healthy living and an acting career – including Shakespeare plays in Gaelic – worked to change things around. This captivating yarn-spinner now shares his life story, slightly unhinged sense of humour and musical adventures with a wild trad trio. Together they create a rare fusion of spoken word and Gaelic beats, gypsy violin, blues harmonica and assorted theatrics. Joining de Staic in The Latchikos comes former one-man band Tim Scanlan (solo at the 2012 fest), and rapper-drummer-trombonist Eimhim Cradock.
