Feature: Ian Flanigan
Saturday, Oct 7th at 7:30pm

Ian Flanigan "inspires a nostalgic sentiment akin to wistful escapism… [he is] emotional without being weepy, vulnerable without being pitiful, and conceptual while still remaining relatable" (Gallagher, SUNY editorial). Flanigan's sound—an eclectic blend of progressive folk and percussive finger style—is reminiscent of the road less traveled, paved with poignant lyrical truths of his past. Local to upstate New York, Flanigan’s songwriting features his rich, husky voice and evocative lyrics highlighting the rural landscape of his compositions. Each song serenades the unity of life and an affinity for atonement—a sound that's provocative, and familiar.

This is one show not to miss!
