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.
This event takes place at Manchester Academy, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
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.
