Mick Flannery

When: Friday 27th September 2019
Where: INEC Acoustic Club

A cliché has it that you have to beware of the quiet ones because most of the time their voices speak sharper and with more range than the loudmouths. Every cliché, however, has a grain of truth in it, and so it’s fair to say that 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. An award-winning, double-platinum selling artist, Mick Flannery has not only Just released his self-titled sixth album which went straight to No. 1, but also oversaw the world premier of the stage musical, Evening Train (named after his 2007 debut album). 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.
