Mickey Spain will be performing Live at the F.M. Kirby Center on Parade Day, Sunday, March 10 at 2:30 p.m., for a FREE concert event. Mickey Spain is a 2nd generation folk singer and songwriter from the mill town of Manchester NH. Although he grew up in a household steeped in music and musicians, Mickey did not actually begin to play music until his mid twenties. While laid up with injuries from an automobile accident, his father gave him a guitar and with an uncontrollable fervor, Mickey went to work learning three chords. The rumors that he never learned another are completely inaccurate. He has indeed learned a few more, and though he’s not sure what they’re called, he is not hesitant to throw them into a song when he thinks they’ll fit…most often they don’t. Over a three week period, Mickey worked tirelessly honing his craft. He partnered with his brother Liam and they began performing Irish and American folk songs as The Spain Brothers.
