About this event

One of Ireland’s foremost singer/songwriters, Mick was born and reared in Limerick, and began his career as a folk singer in Dublin in 1971. His professional debut was as the opening act for Planxty’s first Irish tour. In the following years, his musical journey moved between Trad, Country, Rock, and Contemporary, and he toured the UK, Europe, and the US in a variety of different guises: doubling with Andy Irvine as a folk act on the European circuit in the early eighties, as lead singer with Moving Hearts, and lead singer/writer with Rusty Old Halo.

The tours were interspersed with album releases (fourteen in total). He has won two BMI awards (1 million Radio plays and Most Played Country Song in the US in 1992) for his song ‘Past The Point Of Rescue’ as well as two Hot Press and two National Entertainment awards. His songs have been recorded by numerous artists: Moving Hearts, Christy Moore, Dolores Keane, Ronnie Drew, Mary Black and Delbert McClinton. His 16th album is due out in 2022.
