Mick Broderick, of the Broderick's of East Galway, grew up in Rathcoole, Co. Dublin where he learned mandolin for a number of years under the tutelage of local musician Tom Moran. Some years later, with the help of Clondalkin based Myles Farrell, Mick decided to take up the bouzouki. Having found a deep affinity with this instrument, Mick quickly became well known on the Dublin music scene. Before long he began recording with various artists such as Gavin Whelan, Zoe Conway, Bill Whelan (Riverdance) and Neil Lyons, among others. He went on to be one of the founding members of the headlining band SLIDE with whom he became very familiar to audiences throughout Ireland, Europe and America. Now based in Dublin, Ohio, Mick continues to write, record and produce music at the highest level, most recently with Dave Curley. Received with great acclaim by the music world, this latest recording, Brand New Day, reflects an intimate and dynamic exploration of guitar, bouzouki and vocals. Following in the footsteps of the great composer Vincent Broderick and piano player with Arcady, Patsy Broderick, Mick continues to invigorate the Irish music tradition, finding unique ways of expression and originality.
