Singer-songwriter John Flynn has graced our stage many times before performing tunes drawn from his significant body of work ranging from his early country offerings to story songs, love songs, funny songs, songs of social justice, and meditations on loss, tolerance, faith and hope.
This time around John will play songs we’ve yet to hear from his repertoire, such as “A Manatee Sneezed on me” and “My Brother Ricky’s for Sale”. Songs for kids, and the people who drive them.
The 54 year-old father of four spurned touring when his children were young but as the kids grew older, superlatives began to welcome their dad's arrival to the national folk stage. In 2005, Arlo Guthrie invited John to join musical legends like Willle Nelson and Ramblin' Jack Elliott on the historic "Train to New Orleans" tour following Hurricane Katrina. And Ticket Magazine wrote that “John Flynn is at the near end of a long line of American poets, thinkers and folk artists stretching from Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman, all the way up to Kris Kristofferson”.
John resides in the Brandywine area of Northern Delaware with his family and his running partner, Chief, the world's most exuberant Frisbee-catching German shepherd.
