JOHN FLANAGAN -
Hailing from Corofin, Co. Clare, John Flanagan is a part of the Keane family singing dynasty. He learned to sing in the unaccompanied "sean-nós" style from his aunts, Sarah and Rita Keane, world-renowned exponents of Irish traditional singing. John then branched out into the ancient Gaelic repertoire. Acclaimed for both his singing and flute playing, he has performed with the elite of Irish traditional music including Martin Hayes, Christy Moore, Tony MacMahon, Joe Burke, and of course Dolores and Seán Keane. John was a featured artist in one of the prestigious Irish national "Music Network". Reflecting John’s grasp of the Irish traditional idiom, his vocal compositions have won myriad competitions, and ultimately have entered the traditional repertoire which inspired them. John's profound respect and love for his tradition give his playing and singing a remarkable depth and sincerity. He invariably moves his audience; in the words of renowned Irish vocalist Christy Moore: "I recently heard John sing a sean nós song to a large crowd, most of whom, like myself, did not understand the language, yet we were transfixed by the emotion, poetry, and the tradition of what we were hearing."

ANNA FALKENAU, who will play the fiddle with John, holds a degree in music from University College Cork and recently finished her Master’s in World Music at Wesleyan University. While in Cork, Anna was a regular in sessions with musicians of the caliber of Seamus Creagh, Aidan Coffey, Dave Hennessey and Christy Leahy. As a member of Liz Doherty’s “Fiddlesticks,” she played in venues throughout Ireland.

Hello, Paul...

Probably not. It's a very short tour and John is flying back to Ireland on Sunday, May 22nd. But this event in Pennsylvania will be worth traveling for, so spread the word. There's always the possibility of arranging over-night lodging for those who come from afar.

Slán,
Proinsias
