John Francis Flynn is one of the leading figures in Irelands burgeoning folk music renaissance, his contribution to the cause is a stirring pot of traditional Irish instrumentation, industrial clanking and soundscape experimentation. 

The sonic landscape created through the unconventional use of instruments jagged arrangements often teeters on the edge of disharmony, but it gives the work a magnetism by drawing you into its curious orbit of experimental folk. John masterfully unpicks traditional songs and rearranges them with an emotional force that sometimes leaves them unanchored.

“Flynn is determined to fight stereotypes with music that confronts the truth of the capitalist forces ravaging his home city.– The Guardian
