Weekly Wind Down: Mick Flavin

Having missed last week’s Weekly Wind Down due to being almost out of data, here is this week’s episode – this week, I will be featuring the king of Irish country music, Mick Flavin from Ballinamuck in County Longford…. enjoy!

This is a song about Mick’s home county in Ireland:

This is one of Mick’s duets – this is with the amazing Isla Grant from Scotland – taken from her Down Memory Lane album:

Last one for this week – this is one of my all time favourite songs. Originally done by Jerry Jeff Walker – Mick does an absolutely awesome job on this cover:
