Féile MOTH: John Francis Flynn

+ Junior Brother + Ellie O'Neill

Sunday 5 May
John Francis Flynn will play at Féile MOTH on Sunday 6th May at Moth Club, London, with support from Junior Brother and Ellie O’Neill.
John Francis Flynn released his new album “Look Over the Wall, See the Sky” on Nov. 10th, following on from his critically acclaimed debut album and accompanying live performances. “Look Over the Wall, See the Sky” picks up where “I Would Not Live Always” left off.
John masterfully unpicks traditional songs and rearranges them with an emotional force. They float in a surreal space between the past and the present, the analog and the digital, between love and tragedy. The unconventional use of instruments and jagged arrangements gives the work a magnetism by drawing you into its curious orbit of experimental folk.
Look Over The Wall, See The Sky is a re-imagining of traditional Irish music: powerful, hopeful and free. John Francis Flynn is a singer and multi-instrumentalist who creates contemporary music using traditional and folk material. His debut album “I Would Not Live Always” was released on Rough Trade imprint River Lea Records in 2020, earning rave reviews and winning 2 awards at the RTE Folk Awards.

More about Féile MOTH
