Mick Flannery Solo At The Source

Mick Flannery is one of the most emotionally powerful and in a word brilliant singer-songwriters to come out of Ireland these last few years. His Red to Blue album was one of the records of 2012. Live and on record, he has a voice that, when you hear it, you believe that he is telling the truth.

 

Flannery in known for his distinctive, gravelly voice, reminiscent of Tom Waits, one of his influences and his lyrics, many of which deal with the vagaries of love and which bring to mind another guiding light, Leonard Cohen, especially the Canadian’s habit of switching back and forth between sensitivity and steeliness.

Mick Flannery Solo At The Source

By the Rule is Flannery’s fourth album but it’s a world on from anything he has put his name to before now. Evening Train (2007), White Lies (2008) and 2012’s best-selling and critically acclaimed number one album Red to Blue had their advocates and champions.

 

Beneath and beyond the beautifully understated, uncomplicated and uncluttered production on newest album, Flannery’s songs usher us into a world which is by times emotional, romantic, dark, insightful and hopeful. This solo performance at The Source Arts Centre will be a chance to hear Mick showcase some of his brand new material.
