Oh Yeah Centre
Wednesday 8 May, 8.00pm
With Special Guest Mo Kenney.
Mick Flannery is widely regarded as one of the finest singer-songwriters to come out of Ireland in recent years.
An award winning- double platinum selling artist, Mick has released five albums to date – including two number ones and received widespread airplay. He became the first Irish musician to ever win awards at the International Songwriting Competition in Nashville, aged 19. His critically acclaimed live performances have seen him sell out shows in Ireland’s Olympia Theatre and Cork Opera House.
Mick first picked up a guitar at age of 14 under the musical influence of his mother’s family in their old farmhouse in Blarney, Co. Cork where he grew up listening to Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, and Jim Croce.
Mick wrote songs throughout his teens, while training as a stonemason, which culminated in him signing to a major label at just 21 and releasing his first album Evening Train.
2018 has seen Mick Flannery step out of his comfort zone both musically and geographically, touring new cities across UK, Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand whilst working with a number of celebrated producers along the way.
What has transpired over the last year is one of his strongest bodies of work in his fifteen year song-writing career.
