An incredible tribute concert at Vicar Street to Mic Christopher the Dublin singer songwriter who had died after a tragic accident on tour with The Waterboys in 2001. Many great Irish performers gathered to pay tribute and play a few songs at Vicar Street on 29th November 2011, the 10th anniversary of Mics death.

I was there to meet The Frames and continue working on the film 'The Frames In The Deep Shade' (http://inthedeepshade.theframes.ie ). I got to the venue, straight from the airport just as it all started and started to film a few performances however I had not seen the set list and had absolutely no clue who was playing... It went on for 4 hours!! I filmed as much as I could developing serious cramp (with no tripod) and fortunately, with frequent breaks, I managed to gather some great performances. This is just a taste of the night, Its a shame to keep this hidden away on hard drives when it was created with some love and warmth so I revisited some of the footage a while back and here it it. I only met Mic a couple of times and he was a lovely soul, I remember well those dark days when we waited for the news, and waited and it was not good. RIP Mic
