This is a Scottish / Celtic Alert. The boys are in America, so let’s welcome them. Called one of Celtic music’s most gifted singers and arguably the best songwriter in the entire folk tradition, Andy M. Stewart has been delighting audiences with his music and humor for more than three decades.
Born in Ennis, County Clare, along Ireland’s music-rich west coast, Gerry O’Beirne is a renowned singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist (6 and 12 string guitar, tiple, and ukulele, slide guitar among others). Gerry grew up in Ireland and in Ghana in West Africa, and has since lived in England, California, and Mexico. Gerry’s own compositions blend the passion found in traditional music with the freshness of contemporary song.
“Andy M. Stewart is among the finest interpreters of Scottish Folk songs and a wonderful songwriter.” –The Boston Globe
“The instrumentals are out of this world. A self-taught master of the 6 and 12 string guitar, the playing of O’Beirne is superlative and subtle beyond words.” –The Sunday Times
“O’Beirne’s guitar playing is always a thing of wonder, and his lyrics have become increasingly poetic and emotionally deep.” –Dirty Linen
