The combination of Mick’s songwriting skills, Arty McGlynn’s tasty virtuosity on guitar and Nollaig Casey’s fiddle playing make this a very special coming together of three of the stalwarts of the Irish music scene. Mick and Arty are rekindling a musical relationship that led to two of Hanly’s best albums, Warts and All, and Happy Like This, and the show at The Dock will have all the hallmarks of a musical road well travelled and, with Nollaig Casey joining in, point to journeys new.

Mick Hanly has been singing and writing since the 1970’s, which included a time as lead singer with Moving Hearts. His songs have been recorded by such luminaries as Hal Ketchum, Christy Moore, Mary Black and Dolores Keane.

Arty McGlynn is one of the finest and most sought after guitar players in Ireland, with a unique understanding of the music he performs.He began his professional musical career at the tender age of 15years and in 1979 released the groundbreaking McGlynn’s Fancy, which was the first ever album of traditional music played on guitar. He has since played with such luminaries as Van Morrison, De Dannan, and Patrick Street.

Nollaig Casey started her professional career with the RTE Symphony Orchestra and then joined Planxty in 1980. In recent years Nollaig has recorded and toured with a variety of groups and musicians including, Moving Hearts, Liam O’Flynn, Mary Black and Elvis Costello.

A definite date for any music lover’s diary!
