Mick Hanly Live At Kilcooley Church Tipperary

Singer Mick Hanley

Singer, songwriter, Mick Hanly, is presently touring Tipperary following his latest album release, “Live at the Set,” and will be performing live at Kilcooley Parish Church, Gortnahoe, Thurles on Friday night next.

His latest album was recorded with band and guests at The Set Theatre, Kilkenny last May. It features guest appearances by Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill, Christy Moore, and Mary Black. The album finds Hanly in top form vocally and performing a selection of his very finest songs. A DVD of the concert will be released later this year.

Mick has been around the block more times than most and has tried on a variety of hats in search of his own voice. Starting his career on the Folk circuit in the seventies he made a couple of folk albums for the Mulligan label, before turning his hand to song writing and fronting Moving Hearts for a spell in the early eighties.

He briefly donned a Stetson and formed his own band, Rusty Old Halo, leaving one album with Warner’s called Still Not Cured. After a series of album for the now defunct Round Tower label, Hanly established his own song writing style, which he has been honing to exceptional effect since.

He had a major hit with his song ‘Past the Point of Rescue,’ Stateside in 1992 and picked up three BMI awards, most recently for passing the ‘Two Million Radio Plays,’ target. He also has two Hot Press, and two National Entertainment awards.

His songs have been recorded by artists Hal Ketchum, Mary Black, Delbert McClinton, Dolores Keane, Christy Moore, etc.
So make a date to hear Mick live at Kilcooley Parish Church near Gortnahoe, here in Co Tipperary this coming Friday May 27th  @ 8.30pm.

Tickets:- For tickets costing just €10 – Phone 052 9156165 / 056 8834147. It promises to be a great night.
