Andrew Kennedy "Andy" Irvine (born 14 June 1942) is an Irish folk musician, singer-songwriter, and a founding member of popular bands Sweeney's Men, Planxty, Patrick Street, Mozaik, LAPD and Usher's Island. He is an accomplished player of the mandolin, mandola, bouzouki and harmonica, and occasionally plays the hurdy-gurdy.
He has been influential in folk music for over five decades, during which he collected and recorded a large repertoire of songs and tunes he meticulously researched and assembled from books, folk-song collectors and old recordings rooted in the Irish, English, Scottish, Eastern European, Australian and American old-time and folk traditions. He often sets these traditional songs to new music, and also writes songs about his personal experiences or about the lives and struggles of his heroes: Michael Davitt, Mary Harris "Mother" Jones, Douglas Mawson, Raoul Wallenberg, Emiliano Zapata, and many others.
