UUCC’s One World Coffeehouse concert series kicks off a new season on Saturday, September 17, from 7 to 9pm with a performance by John Flynn, a 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.” He was recently named the winner of the 2018 Phil Ochs Award.
🎟️ Tickets are $25 and can be purchased here. Doors will open at 6:30pm.
We hope you’ll be part of this evening of fellowship and music!
