#TBT @SalonConcertChi Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny! @RTERadio1 #irishmusic

One of our best Salon Concerts Chicago Concerts was the one in 2014 featuring the stellar duo of Andy Irvine and Dónal Lunny! They shared fantastic music, told interesting stories and enthralled our audience! We were honor to host them that summer and then go see them at Milwaukee Irish Fest that weekend! Enjoy this song from the lads!
