A year after Mic Christopher’s untimely death, his family and friends are celebrating his life and music with the release of his Skylarkin’ album and a star-studded gala live performance
A year to the day after his tragic death in Amsterdam, family, friends and fans of the late Mic Christopher will be gathering in Vicar St. for an evening of Skylarkin’ on November 29. All 1200 tickets for the night sold out within a week, with the proceeds going to a children’s speech therapy charity.
“It’s sort of a joint venture – it’s a celebration of his life on the anniversary of his death, and it’s also the posthumous launch of his album,” explains the late singer’s sister Maureen. “The album will actually be in the shops that day.”
The album Skylarkin’ was completed by former Mary Janes bandmate Karl Odlum, using the Dublin recordings Mic had just finished prior to departing on his ill-fated European tour supporting The Waterboys.
