On Saturday 27th October at 8pm, we welcome Mick Flannery back to the Inkwell, where he headlined the 2016 Tracton Arts Festival to an enthusiastic full house. We expect this show to sell out, so would advise early purchase of tickets to avoid disappointment. Tickets will also be available in XL Minane Bridge (Dempsey’s).

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 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.

Special Guest Lorraine Hogan will add a jazz element to the evening, singing numbers made famous by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Peggie Lee. She has performed at Ronnie Scott’s in London and in many of the premier jazz venues across the UK and Europe. Her smoky voice, accompanied by virtuoso jazz guitarist Sam Barker, will get the evening off to an atmospheric start.
