Foster & Allen’s ‘Golden Years Tour’ - Ireland

Foster & Allen’s
Between December 27th and March 10th the ever popular Irish duo Foster & Allen perform a series of concerts at venues in Ireland on their ‘Golden Years Tour’ – see the poster.

Few acts anywhere can rival Foster & Allen (accordionist Mick Foster and singer/guitarist Tony Allen) for keeping the accordion before the general public, and they have a huge international following. In 1979 they released the single ‘A Bunch of Thyme’, which became their first No.1 single in Ireland and the UK. Other hit singles followed, and the duo has toured many times the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. To date, they have released over 30 best-selling albums and 13 DVDs, with album and DVD sales over 22 million worldwide.

Mick Foster was taught to play the accordion by Sister Agnes Murray and by Frankie Gavigan. Main influences on his playing included Jimmy Shand and Will Starr. In 1968 and 1970 Mick Foster won the All Ireland Piano Accordion Championship at the Fleadh Cheoil. He has stated that his accordion would be the last thing in life he would be prepared to give up.
