Event description
Mick Flannery has a voice for the ages….A complete master of his craft

About this Event

An award-winning, double-platinum selling Irish artist, Mick Flannery’s latest self-titled album debuted at number one in July 2019. He was recently shortlisted for the RTE Choice Music Prize for Irish Album of the Year 2019 and premiered his musical “Evening Train” (based on his album of the same title) in June 2019 at Everyman Theatre in Cork, Ireland. While County Cork singer-songwriter Mick Flannery is outwardly reserved his songs are fluent in expressing layered aspects of the human condition its flaws, triumphs and general uncertainty.

Following the release of his number one self-titled album exactly one year ago, the award-winning double-platinum selling artist has released his seventh album: ‘Alive - Cork Opera House’, out July 24th 2020.

He began to write songs as a teenager in his home of Blarney, County Cork. As musical influences from albums by the likes of Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell, and Tom Waits seeped into his creative DNA, Mick absorbed, learned and honed the craft that would send him on his way into the world. The path was smoothed somewhat when, at the age of 19, he became the first Irish songwriter to win the Nashville-based International Songwriting Competition. By the time he turned 21, he had signed to a label and released his debut album.
