Ian Flanigan

Alternative Folk

Saturday, August 18 @ 6:30 - 7:30 PM
Soccer STAGE

Ian Flanigan “inspires a nostalgic sentiment akin to wistful escapism… emotional without being weepy, vulnerable without being pitiful, and conceptual while still remaining relatable” (Gallagher, SUNY editorial). Flanigan's sound—an eclectic blend of progressive folk and percussive finger style—is reminiscent of the road less traveled, paved with poignant lyrical truths of his past. Local to upstate New York, Flanigan’s songwriting features husky vocals and evocative lyrics that highlight the rural landscapes of his compositions. Each song serenades the unity of life and an affinity for atonement—a sound that's provocative, and familiar. This year he celebrates his place as a Kerrville Grassy Hill New Folk Festival finalist, as well as an Emerging Artist for Falcon Ridge Folk festival. Flanigan has had the pleasure of sharing stages with Corey Glover, Sean Rowe, The Pedrito Martinez Group, Session Americana, Chris Knight, and Dwight Yoakam.
