Movinmusic presents ‘Flanagan’
Best known as being Jools Holland’s guitarist, Mark Flanagan was born in Liverpool and started playing ukulele at the age of eight.
He got his first guitar when he was 12 and was mesmerised by Django Rheinhardt. He grew up listening to Hank Williams, Ray Charles, The Beatles, Tamla Motown, the Stones, and Bowie. He joined his first group at the age of 15 and later moved to East Anglia where he founded cult swing harmony group 'The Box Brothers'.
Mark then moved to London in 1988, where his neighbour happened to be Jools Holland. He jammed with Jools at the Edinburgh festival that year and has been with the Rhythm and Blues Orchestra ever since, touring nationally and internationally as well as performing on many live TV shows, where he has accompanied anyone from Chaka Khan to Paul Weller, Barry White to Eric Clapton, to name but a few.
For the first time and for one night only, Mark Flanagan brings his own 4 piece band down to Cornwall.
Mark plays Dobro and acoustic guitars and his songs have strong elements of blues, folk and country. With a hint of New Orleans, and an occasional nod to the early blues masters, it makes for an eclectic and entertaining experience.
His first two albums, The Chosen Few and Down the Wire were well received in the folk/roots community. To get a flavour of his music, check out Mark Flanagan Trio on Youtube.
