John Francis Flynn

Co-presented by Bird On The Wire

Voices Unwrapped

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 will release John Francis Flynn’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
