Heritage Week 2017 at Muckross culminates in a very special concert by two of Ireland’s greatest singer songwriters – Jimmy Crowley & Mick Hanly.
Jimmy Crowley has been a central figure in the Irish folk scene since the enthusiastic reception of his debut album The Boys of Fairhill in 1977. With his band Stokers Lodge their mission was to present the street ballads of Cork city complimented by the ornate folk songs of the rural hinterland of Cork and Kerry in an exciting orchestration of uilleann pipes, concertina, autoharp, harmonium, mandolin, bouzouki and guitar in their native accent.
Singer-songwriter Mick Hanly began his career as a folk singer in Dublin in 1971.In the ensuing years he moved through different phases and forms of music, from Trad, Country, Rock, and Contemporary, and toured the UK, Europe, and the US in a variety of different guises: doubling with Andy Irvine as a folk act on the European circuit in the early eighties, as lead singer with Moving Hearts, and lead singer/writer with Rusty Old Halo. His songs were covered by Christy Moore, Mary Black and the country singer Hal Ketchum, who took Hanly’s ‘Past The Point Of Rescue’ into the Top 10 of the US country chart in 1993.
