Rusty Old Halo

Rusty Old Halo were Mick Hanly (vocals, guitar), Pat Carey (bass), Davy Whyte (drums), Peter Condell (guitar), Paul Kelly (fiddle), Bill Whelan (piano) and Keith Donald (saxophone). Originally from Limerick Mick Hanly was a singer-songwriter before starting a 14 month stint with Moving Hearts in 1982 where he filled the shoes of none other than Christy Moore. Following his departure from Moving Hearts Mick formed Rusty Old Halo and they released the album ‘Still Not Cured‘ on W.E.A. in 1987. Hanly saw increased success in 1989 when Mary Black recorded ‘Past the Point of Rescue’ for her best selling ‘No Frontiers’ album. The song saw even greater success in the U.S. when recorded by country singer Hal Ketchum shortly afterwards. Mick has just released ‘Collected’and has recently performed a number of gigs with Arty McGlynn to promote that release.
