Mic Christopher Remembered

Mic Christopher would have turned 40 on Monday 21st September! I will let his music and these videos remind you of his wonderful talent.

These three videos are a celebration of Mic Christopher's life from the Irish Language channel TG4. It shows a cool clip of Glen Hansard, Mark Dignam and Mic busking in Temple Bar. Also included is footage from Mic's first band The Mary Janes.



Part 2 of the episode:



I learned so much from these clips. Lovely footage of some of the best Irish musicians in the last 10 years.



Here is a little reminder of how amazing a talent Mic was. I seen The Mary Janes perform 'Friends' on an Irish music programme and I loved it. Then as a kid of about 15 seen the band live in Merrion Square in a Summer gigs outdoor lunch thing. The next and only other time I seen Mic live was in Whelans when he supported the wonderful Dar Williams.
