Past traditions meet a new style. Folk singer/songwriter Mickey Coleman is the latest sensation to hit the Irish folk music scene. A former champion Gaelic football player from County Tyrone, Coleman has a special talent for transforming poetic verses into heart-wrenching lyrics and delivering them with a captivating voice. The singer of such moving ballads as ‘The Holylands Belfast,” “The Brantry Boy” and “My Coalisland Girl” has already shared the stage with The Chieftains, Cara Dillon and other top Irish music performers. And like any good native of the Emerald Isle, he’s going to bring his talent to the New York Irish Center in Long Island City on November 9th.
