The Spiegeltent was packed last night and everyone was there to see Mick Flannery and his band play. Last night’s gig was an early gig; it started at 7pm and finished up at 8.30pm to facilitate another show shortly after 9pm. It’s been a while since I was at a Mick Flannery gig. I think the last one was his gig at the Opera House last September. I was delighted to hear lots of favourites from Evening Train as well as some new songs. He had help from Aaron Dillion, Andy Dunne and Ricky Lynch on ‘Take on the Chin’ which is a great crowd pleaser. Aaron Dillion also played harmonica for the song ‘In the Gutter’. I’m looking forward to hearing the new album whenever it is released.
