Mick Hanly Local Concert
Few Irish singer songwriters combine the best of traditional, folk and country, but Mick Hanly does and sometimes all within the confines of the same song. Over the last 40 years, Mick has kept his songs fresh and his voice strong.His latest album. Homeland contains some of his best ever work.
A Limerick native, now living in Kilkenny, Mick Hanly is probably best know for his hit Country song, Past the Point of Rescue. Hal Ketchum topped the US Country charts with the song, not just for weeks but for months and in the process made Hanly a reasonably wealthy man! Mick also did a stint with Moving Hearts before once again settling back into the life of a solo performer. Over the years, Hanly has produced numerous successful solo albums including All I Remember, Wish Me Well and Still Not Cured. Currently promoting his Homeland album, Mick is still bringing to his audiences a mix of powerful songs covering such themes as parenting, coming of age, the environment the love of home. Mick Hanly is strong of character and yet at times, unashamedly sensitive.
