Three smiling people stand next to each other in front of a forest.

Folk music’s legendary triumvirate of musical magpies Mike McGoldrick, John Doyle and John McCusker are hitting the road again to bring you their blend of top-class folk songs, tunes and charming bonhomie.

All three musicians have won global acclaim: John Doyle (Dublin–vocals, guitar, bouzouki, mandola) is an Irish music linchpin and founding member of acclaimed group Solas, who have worked with Joan Baez, Linda Thompson and Mary Chapin Carpenter. BBC Radio 2 Folk Award-winner John McCusker (Glasgow–fiddle, whistles, harmonium) has played with The Battlefield Band and Bob Dylan, recorded with Paul Weller, and recently produced albums for Eddi Reader, Heidi Talbot and Kris Drever. Mike McGoldrick (Manchester–flute, whistles, Uileann pipes, bodhran, clarinet, congas) is a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award-winner, founding member of Lúnasa, and current member of Capercaillie, with notable collaborators including Mark Knopfler, Eddi Reader and John Cale.

With their vast repertoire, this will be an evening to remember. Described as masters of flute, fiddle, song and guitar, the trio work in perfect harmony to deliver an unforgettable musical experience that is not to be missed.
