John Francis Flynn at Feakle Folk Club

Friday, 24 September 2021, 8.00pm

John Francis Flynn plays the second in the Feakle Folk Club series at the renowned East Clare Venue.

John Francis Flynn is a singer and multi-instrumentalist whose work centres around traditional and folk material from Ireland. He is a founding member of the band, Skipper’s Alley, with whom he has toured extensively throughout Europe and America. While supporting Lankum on their 2019 UK tour he caught the eye of Geoff Travis and Jeanette Lee who quickly signed John to Rough Trade imprint label, River Lea. River Lea released John’s debut album “I Would Not Live Always” in Spring 2021. Produced by highly regarded producer, Brendan Jenkinson, this release looks to continue where River Lea last left off; highlighting the enormous talent hidden away in the corners of Ireland’s folk scene.

“Human experience burns ferociously on this extraordinary debut from the uncompromising Irish artist John Francis Flynn. An extraordinary debut” The Guardian

“Double Tin Whistle and Tape-Loops. Revelatory new takes on English and Irish folk songs in the manner of Sam Amidon. A singular and striking clarity of vision” Uncut Magazine

Feakle Folk Club is presented with the support of the Live Performance Support Scheme from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
