We’re delighted to welcome John Francis Flynn to the Trades Club in Hebden Bridge.

The release of his second album Look Over the Wall, See the Sky last The November kicked off a huge start to the year for Dubliner John Francis Flynn.

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 two awards at the RTE Folk Awards.

This show is a co-promotion with Please Please You and the Brudenell.
