Emmylou & Shawn Colvin cover Mick Flannery

Shawn Colvin/Emmy Lou Harris

Following Mick Flannery's rocking set at Liss Ard 2012 on Sunday evening (always great to see the Blarney man heavy it up a little when backed by the full ensemble), a certain talented pedal-steel player informed me that the Cork man's track 'Up On That Hill' has been covered by none other than Shawn Colvin with backing vocals provided by the Queen of Nashville herself, Emmylou Harris. How amazing is that?!

After a brief hiatus, Mick has returned with a bang, new album Red To Blue knocking that auld one off of her chart-topping perch in the process.
