So this Wednesday night the 29th of DEC 2021 is the first time our doc Heyday: The Mic Christopher story will premiere on Irish Television. I couldn’t be more proud of this doc, it is such a heartfelt, sweet and uplifting story and I am honoured to have been part of the team that put it together.
The film is due to screen at 10:15pm on TG4 and will be available on their player for a few days after that.
Next screening dates are for New Zealand on Rialto Channel 39 where it will be screening three times – 20th of Feb 08:30pm, 26th of Feb 07:20pm, 27th of Feb 09:15am
The doc charts singer-songwriter Mic Christopher’s humble beginnings busking on the streets of Dublin, his rise to rock star, the near fatal accident that nearly left him millimetres from death, through to his final year where he lead an entire generation of Irish musicians onto fame, success and new artistic highs.
Told through the eyes of those whose lives he touched (Oscar-winner Glen Hansard, writer/actor Sharon Horgan, Mike Scott of The Waterboys, Bronagh Gallagher, Josh Ritter, Lisa Hannigan, Rónán Ó’Snodaigh and many more. This epic story of extraordinary music and friendship will both touch and inspire.
