These three world stars of Scots and Irish music have played at Tønder Festival before, both together and in other constellations. At Tønder Festival 2018 they return with top flight tunes and songs. It’s not too much to say that together and separately, violinist John McCusker and uillean piper and flute player Michael McGoldrick have helped redefine Irish and Scottish music and they enjoy enormous respect in international folk music circles. Michael McGoldrick is a founder member of Flook, has played with Lúnasa and on his own project Michael McGoldrick’s Future Trad Collective. John McCusker has toured with Bob Dylan and Mark Knopler and has worked with Paolo Nutini, Heidi Talbot, Kate Rusby and Battlefield Band (he was 16 when he joined).

John Doyle, along with Seamus Egan and Karan Casey, was central to Irish-American Solas. His subtle, intensely rhythmic guitar has accompanied such celebrities as Kate Rusby, Eileen Ivers and Linda Thompson. For some years now, John Doyle has toured with Joan Baez. Exclusive Danish festival concert in 2018.
