With guitar, harmonicas, and passionate perceptive words, John Flynn makes you laugh, makes you feel, makes you care. Expect a blend of warmth and humor, sharp-eyed commentary, brilliant performance, and a wide-open heart. John is known for his powerful music and tireless efforts on behalf of the lost, shackled and scarred. Flynn singing Circle of Love: Love Freedom Justice Mercy Love

In 2005 Flynn began facilitating an inmate support group at Delaware’s maximum security penitentiary, then took on other prisons. In 2013 he began running groups for those who had been released. These groups provided community and support for ex-offenders and have helped fight recidivism. In 2017, Flynn founded New Beginnings – Next Step, a non-profit dedicated to helping incarcerated and returning citizens successfully transition to freedom, and that work has become the largest part of John’s multi-activity work life.

Deana McCloud of the Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, writes, “John Flynn is the real deal. His work follows in the footsteps of Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Kris Kristofferson, and other social justice troubadours as he speaks the truth and gives a voice to society’s disenfranchised. His work fills your heart and opens your eyes.”
