Andy Dunne is an Entertainer / Songwriter from Cork City Ireland. His solo performances have been described as “Magical..” – PROC. Though never an easy task, it’s becoming harder and harder for Andy to slip into any one genre as he continues to perform possibly the most eclectic set of songs you will hear from a solo performer and his natural onstage wit and banter add another dimension to what is already a great night’s entertainment. Although performing mainly well-arranged cover versions, Andy also adds some of his own songs to the mix. These range from heartwarming contemporary folk ballads to (sometimes humorous) pop/blues songs. All accompanied by his unique acoustic guitar style.
