Mick Flannery to play the intimate Bog Lane

In the last couple of years Mick Flannery has gone from part-time stonemason to one of Ireland’s most sought after musicians. Currently writing his third album, a follow up to the hugely praised White Lies he has played a string of sold-out shows all over Ireland.

Flannery is a refreshingly unassuming artist whose sole focus seems to be on his craft, song-writing. A Mick Flannery gig has a feeling of intimacy to it, Flannery’s stage presence exudes no superficial gimmicks, just a man sharing his songs in an understated but powerful manner.

But if asked, Mick adamantly refuses to talk about himself or his achievements; he shies away from these things. Though it’s hard to get this talented musician to open up about himself in a conversation, the heartfelt honesty in his lyrics speak reams. That’s why he has so far been compared to such great songwriters as Bruce Springsteen and Tom Waits.

The year 2009 was more than a successful year for Flannery with two sold out Vicar Street shows, a re-release of his platinum selling critically acclaimed album White Lies and collaborations with Kate Walsh, John Spillane, and more.

This year has been just as busy with shows in Europe and the UK. 2010 has also seen Mick returning to the studio to record his third album which is due for release in early 2011.

Mick Flannery will be performing in the Bog Lane Theatre, Edgeworthstown Road, Ballymahon, Co Longford on Friday November 5, doors 8.15pm.

Tickets are priced at €15 and are on sale from the Country Shop, Ballymahon or online from www.tickets.ie or www.ticketgroup.ie Tickets strictly limited to 68, so pre-booking is highly recommended.
