Australian folk band John Flanagan Trio are set to release ‘Honest Man’, Flanagan’s third album and his first time recording with his regular Trio band mates. Fast becoming a favourite on the Australian Folk Festival circuit the group manages to transcend the sum of its impressive parts. Award winning songwriter, John Flanagan has been compared to James Taylor and Paul Kelly for his warm vocal delivery and engaging storytelling as one of Australia’s finest lyricists -Timber and Steel; Liz Frencham has a remarkable stage presence and a creativity in her double bass playing which has seen her play alongside artists of international renown; Dan Watkins is recognised as one of the finest young bluegrass pickers in the country on guitar and mandolin and has toured extensively around Australia and the US. Together they combine 70's folk singer-songwriter influences with a range of contemporary Americana styles, from bluegrass and country to blues and jazz. With soaring three-part harmonies and tight arrangements the trio delivers a dynamic and energetic live show that can vary from humorous and uplifting to moving and thoughtful.
