After the success of their ‘Courage’ series, Other Voices is set to release a trio of songs from Mick Flannery and Susan O’Neill’s mesmerising live performance.
Recorded at the Crawford Art Gallery, Cork in July 2020, the brand new three-track EP will feature two Mick Flannery originals (‘I’ll Be Out Her’e and ‘Must Be More’) as well as a cover of ‘Angel From Montgomery’ by country-folk pioneer John Prine.
Their ‘Courage’ performance was a highlight of 2020 for the pair, who have been working on a full album of duets due out later in 2021. Ahead of the duet album release, this special ‘Courage’ recording will be released on streaming platforms on Friday 9th April.
This will be the first in a series of ‘Courage’ music releases with more EP’s and a compilation album scheduled for later this year.

Susan O’Neill said:
“Really glad to be a part of this Other Voices E.P with Mick. Good craic was had making it and what a joy it was singing in the Crawford Art Gallery.”
Mick Flannery said:
“Very happy to be included in this EP. I’m very grateful to have had the chance to work with everyone involved.”
Other Voices Founder Philip King, said:
“Mick Flannery and Susan O Neill write wonderful songs of love loss and longing and for Other Voices Courage they performed them with passion in the wonderful Crawford Gallery in the heart of Cork City. On that evening they as a nod of recognition and thanks to the late John Prine sang his great song Angel From Montgomery….It was a precious gift.
Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery
Make me a poster of an old rodeo
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go.”
