SongLives

Curated by Susan McKeown, SongLives brings the rich tradition of busking on Dublin’s Grafton Street to the wonderful intimacy and acoustics of the Donaghy Theatre. This unique concert series features both established artists, as well as up-and-comers, as they share their songs and stories with IAC audiences.

Mick Flannery and Casey Black
Saturday, November 9 | 8 pm

Mick Flannery

“Mick Flannery is a singing and songwriting force to be reckoned with.” The Irish Times

Winner of the Nashville Songwriting Competition in two categories, Blarney native Mick Flannery earns his listing in The Irish Times “50 Best Irish Acts” with his gravelly powerful voice that carries well after his unforgettable performances are over.

Casey Black

“Casey has restored my faith in the lost art of damn fine songwriting.” Tricia Halloran, KCRW

Nashville-born, literary singer-songwriter Casey Black—son of Charlie Black, NSAI Hall of Fame songwriter—became one of the youngest Music Row songwriters at nineteen and cut his teeth at Los Angeles venues like The Hotel Café and House of Blues. Casey is a Columbia University graduate and owns more books than he does records, writing storytelling lyrics about optimistic pessimists, about the battles between the brain and the guts and moves his audiences with his deep singing voice tumbled with gravel and passion. Casey recently released his fourth album, Lay You In The Loam on June 13th, 2013.

Past performers include Susan McKeown, Declan O’Rourke, Michael Brunnock, Brendan O’Shea, Mark Geary, Ann Scott, Niall Connolly, Wallis Bird, Anthony Mulcahy, Mundy, The Guggenheim Grotto, Jenna Nichols, Heathers, and Gerry Leonard.
