Mick McAuley

Mick McAuley is an Irish musician, composer and songwriter, his music rooted firmly in the tradition, and in his homeland of County Kilkenny. From his work as a long-time member of SOLAS, to playing for STING in his Broadway Production “The Last Ship”, he has established a reputation for excellence.  His solo performance continues to push the musical boundaries of the tradition, bringing Irish music to a wider and more diverse audience around the world.  A fine singer and multi-instrumentalist known for his brilliance on the button accordion, he is no less at home on guitar, melodeon, concertina, and whistles. Mick’s solo concerts are a perfect blending of songs that engage the mind and heart, and tunes that evoke the enchantment that is Ireland.

From his stellar role as a member of Solas, Mick McAuley has truly emerged as a solo artist   Brian O’ Donovan WGBH

Highs and Bellows is a brilliant and tightly packed album…which captures McAuley’s outstanding musicianship and well-heeled artistic vision.  Daniel Neely- The Irish Echo
