Melting Vinyl are thrilled to welcome back Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit to the beautiful St George’s Church, with incredible support from Marika Hackman and Cosmo Sheldrake!
Young Actor (Royal Court theatre), poet and songwriter who cites W B Yeats and Shakespeare among his influences, Johnny Flynn continues a tradition that can be traced back through Nick Drake to Edwardian folk revivalists such as Cecil Sharp.
The group’s first album, “A Larum” was released in 2008 through Vertigo Records, receiving critical praise including a nomination for the XFM music award and Paste Magazine’s best music of 2008, and the group’s second album Been Listening was released through Transgressive Records on 7 June 2010, and was accompanied with worldwide touring. The record followed the debut album, A Larum released in the summer of 2008, and the Sweet William EP, which was released in the winter of 2009. In 2012 Johnny Flynn released a Soundtrack Album “A Bag of Hammers”. Their third album, Country Mile, is due for release in September 2013.
Having toured with the likes of Laura Marling and most recently hit the stage at Gentleman Of The Road at our local Lewes stop over, this beautiful show is not to be missed. Tickets are selling fast!
