Since the beginning of lockdown, Cork singer-songwriter Mick Flannery, in partnership with PlayIrish, have been hosting a popular online concert showcase, ‘Mini Gigs at Mick’s’, where friends of Flannery takeover his Facebook and Instagram platforms.
Series 5, which began last night (7pm, Tuesday 5th May) with a live performance from American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Memphis, Tennessee: Valerie June. Mick says: “Valerie June has been exceptionally kind to me over the last few years. I owe a lot of great new experiences in different places to her. Valerie is an inspiring performer and a great human.”
