The Power of Song with Sonny Ochs
September 30, 2018
Power of Song Concert with John Flynn and Sonny Ochs
Sunday, Sept. 30 - 3pm at the Mabee Farm
An afternoon of music by John Flynn meant to change the world, in the spirit of Phil Ochs. $10/person.
John Flynn is an American singer-songwriter and activist known for his powerful music and tireless efforts on behalf of “the lost and the lonely, the shackled and scarred”. His career has embodied an authentic troubadour odyssey that moved legendary folk DJ Gene Shay to call Flynn "the most quintessential folk singer in my life", and Andrew L. Braunfeld of the Philadelphia Folk Festival to say, "It has been disappointing that the world of folk music has not, during the last half century, been creating many new heroes. John Flynn is a notable exception, and is worthy of our respect as he follows the paths of Woody Guthrie, Phil Ochs and Kris Kristofferson."
