Never miss another 'Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit' show
Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit
After a two-year hiatus from the live circuit, Johnny Flynn and The Sussex Wit confirm an October headline tour.
Johnny and long-time collaborator / best friend Adam Beach (The Sussex Wit) release their third record, 'Country Mile', in September. The theme for the album is one of journeying, with the way as a teacher: a 'Country Mile' being an indefinite distance. The allegory is a through line for the record with each song making up the different elements of a life seen as one journey. They stand as a map or constellation; the 'journey' under observation includes those of the Earth, the Moon, the Sun and the stars.
Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit are unsurprisingly fronted by Johnny Flynn, an actor, poet and songwriter who cites W.B. Yeats and Shakespeare among his influences. He is the half-brother of Jerome Flynn, of 'Game of Thrones' and Robson and Jerome fame. But don't go expecting covers of 'Unchained Melody' from this Flynn. Johnny plays nimble-fingered, folk-soaked-blues.
