Bob Bradshaw and Flynn will be performing at a special St.

Patrick’s Day event at Club Passim, 47 Palmer Street in Cambridge, the premier folk-music venue in

greater Boston. Flynn and Bradshaw will be accompanied by Ian Kennedy (guitar/fiddle), Jordan Alegant

(stand-up/electric bass), and Seth Botos (drums/percussion). Flynn and Bradshaw will also be performing

songs from their current songwriting collaboration for the first time.


Singer-songwriter Bob Bradshaw, who hails from Cork, Ireland, has spent the past twenty-five years

honing his craft throughout Europe and the US. From busking in Lisbon, Munich, and Copenhagen

to forming the influential Bay-area band Resident Aliens and earning his degree at Boston’s Berklee

College of Music, Bradshaw has experienced life through the prism of music. Bradshaw, who is releasing

his fifth album next month, has been called a “cross between Ray Davies, Ryan Adams, and Randy

Newman”, and his take on Americana evokes the soul-searching of musical influences ranging from John

Hiatt to Steve Earle. Bob’s music is available at his website, www.bobbradshaw.net.


Flynn has enjoyed a similarly eclectic musical journey. Originally from County Wicklow, Ireland,

Flynn has enjoyed a vibrant career in a wide range of musical endeavors, as a musician, songwriter,

composer, and producer. The founder of Boston’s legendary Cliffs of Dooneen, with whom he had a top-

ten hit and toured with Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins, Flynn has released four critically acclaimed

and commercially successful solo albums. His first, On Your Way, won the Boston Music Award

for “Outstanding Debut Album of the Year”. His latest releases, infused with an honest, emotionally

powerful view of life, reflect Flynn’s American journey. He has shared the stage with the Allman

Brothers, Ellis Paul, and Simple Minds, among many other artists, and brings energy and passion to his

live performances. Flynn has also composed and performed his music for a number of films, including the

Farrelly brothers’ Stuck on You (with Cher), the stage, and television. Flynn’s music is available at his

website, www.flynnmusic.com.


This special concert will be the CD Release Party for Bob Bradshaw’s new album, Home. This

collection of twelve original songs, featuring guest musicians Duke Levine, Annie Lynch, Dan Gurney,

Maeve Gilchrist, and Scoop McGuire, captures the listener with “its far-ranging, sometimes anguished,

occasionally hopeful and always engaging songs” (Tom Franks, Folkwords UK, 2012).
