On Friday, Oct. 7 at 7:30 p.m., the Sail, Power and Steam Museum at Sharp’s Point South will present a concert by Andy Irvine, one of the great Irish singers. Tickets are $15, and call ahead for good seats is recommended.

Irvine’s voice is one of a handful of truly great ones that gets to the very soul of Ireland. Musician, singer and songwriter, he has maintained his highly individual performing skills throughout his 45-year career. In the last decade, Irvine has played concerts in Moscow, Mexico City, Newfoundland, Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua, as well as undertaking extensive tours of Japan, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Argentina and Chile.

Although an integral part of the finest Irish bands of our time — including Sweeney’s Men in the mid-1960s and the enormously successful Planxty in the ’70s — Irvine continues along the path he set for himself so long ago, a vibrant career as a solo artist in the old style, a teller of tales and maker of music — a musician’s musician.

Sharp’s Point South and the Sail, Power and Steam Museum are at 75 Mechanic St. For more information, call 596-0200; send email to ssmuseum@midcoast.com; or visit sailpowerandsteammuseum.org.
