Mick Flannery at the Crown Live this Christmas

Mick Flannery returns to Wexford to the Crown Live on Saturday 29th of December for a very special festive show. Performing new songs alongside all your favourites, it’s a show not to be missed.

 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 the 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.

Mick’s most recent albums were written in Berlin, a move Mick himself refers to as “self-imposed exile”. His current album I Own You, sees Mick deal with broader issues than previous work including themes of social injustice and inequality. Mick currently lives in County Clare, Ireland where he is working on his sixth studio album.
