m-hanly-poster-18The one voice of Mick Hanly on Friday 8th June will enthrall us with songs of abuse, drink, school, love and everything else that goes on in everyday life.

Mick 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 ensuing years he moved through different phases and forms of music, from Trad, Country, Rock, and Contemporary, and 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). In the late eighties he concentrated on song writing, capturing 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’.

The 4 Of Us
Friday July 20th @ 8pm       Tickets €20

4_of_Us_2_show_events_page-300x231The 4 Of Us have been a part of Irish music history for over a quarter of a century.

Formed and fronted by Newry-born brothers Brendan and Declan Murphy, they have developed a strong musical identity which has produced original and award-winning recordings, as well as a large and loyal fan base.

The 4 Of Us shot to early fame towards the end of 1989 with their debut Songs for the Tempted, which featured the massive hits Mary and Drag My Bad Name Down.

The follow up, Man Alive, made Q magazine’s Top 50 Albums of 1992 and included the UK Top 30 song She Hits Me.

This concert will see the brothers in an up-tempo acoustic setting – expect some beautiful songs, both new and old, stunning interplay and great stories from the road.
