After his performance at the Bluesfest Busking Tent last year, local Irish songwriter Mick McHugh (pictured) has been invited back to perform at the 2012 festival.
With his new CD You're Perfect due out in April, and a national tour opening for legendary songwriter Ralph McTell, the Irish troubadour is out to show Australian audiences why he won first prize at the Gold Coast Raw Talent Quest last year.
Mick only started playing guitar at 23 and started songwriting the day after he met his Aussie wife. Love is inspiring, eh?
You can catch Mick this Friday, February 24, at Howards Wine Bar in Lismore (Keen Street); on Saturday, February 25, at the Byron Artisan Night Market at Byron Railway Park from 5pm; and this Sunday, February 26, at the Bangalow Market from 10am.
