John Flynn, an American singer-songwriter and activist, will perform at the Middleburgh Library on Sunday, Feb. 2 at 4 p.m.

He is known for his powerful music and tireless efforts on behalf of the lost and the lonely, the shackled and scarred. His career has embodied an authentic troubadour odyssey that moved Andrew L. Braunfeld of the Philadelphia Folk Festival to say, “It has been disappointing that the world of folk music has not, during the last half century, been creating many new heroes. John Flynn is a notable exception, and is worthy of our respect as he follows the paths of Woody Guthrie, Phil Ochs and Kris Kristofferson.”

This event is made possible in part with public funds from the Decentralization Program and the New York State Council on the Arts, administered by the Community Arts Grant Program by the Greene County Council on the Arts.

No registration is required. Tickets are available at the door. A $10 donation is suggested. Please use the library’s back entrance.
