If you think folk music is boring and only for members of green peace then think again!
28 year old Johnny Flynn (also known as Joe Flynn) is a unique talent who takes folk music to another level. Amongst his claims to fame he can include; appearing in Lisa Mitchell’s ‘Coin Laundry’ video as well as performing a duet with Brit award winner, Laura Marling in his most recent single “The Water”
His debut album, “A larum” is full of beautifully written lyrics and so many emotions, and his second album “Been Listening” continues this and does not fail to disappoint.
Personally I am not into that many folk bands but Johnny Flynn is a brilliant example of a modern day folk singer. After seeing Johnny Flynn and his band the Sussex Wit at last year’s Festibelly in Lymington and if you get the chance to see him live you will not be dissapointed!
