“his solo flight swoops and soars with the confidence” The Irish Times
“Folk Album of the Year” Mojo Magazine ****
“Human experience burns ferociously on this extraordinary debut from the uncompromising Irish artist John Francis Flynn. An extraordinary debut” The Guardian ****

Fresh from an exhilarating sold-out show at Whelans in Dublin and a double award-winning appearance at the 2021 RTE Folk Awards, John Francis Flynn today announces his first solo show at Vicar Street, Dublin alongside extensive UK tour dates.

The newly crowned “Best Singer” and “Best Emerging Artist” at the RTE Folk Awards is set to play the historic Vicar Street venue on May 1st. As John Francis Flynn continues to gather rave reviews at home and abroad this will surely be a show not to be missed.  The recent Whelans show saw Flynn and band expand upon the critically acclaimed debut “I Would Not Live Always” with lush, expansive soundscapes and pulsating versions of fan favourites “My Son Tim” and “Lovely Joan”.

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.

Plus support:

Molly Parden: In spite of a natural middle-child diffidence and reluctance towards the spotlight, it didn’t take long for Molly to establish herself as a promethean musical force in Nashville’s vibrant underground and beyond. Since relocating to Music City in 2013, Molly has toured the world as a bassist, guitarist, and singer—joining the backing bands of Atlanta’s indie songstress, Faye Webster; west coast troubadour Sam Outlaw; and Austin Texas’s boozily existential poet, David Ramirez. While at home in Nashville, Molly paid her bills as a waitress, and in the studio with her voice—providing her uniquely fragile and captivating harmony vocals on over 50 records in just a few years. www.mollyparden.com
