“The only reason John Flynn doesn’t have half a dozen songs in Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and Alan Lomax’s book Hard Hitting Songs for Hard-Hit People is that when they started writing, John hadn’t even been born yet.” – – Si Kahn “Nothing makes me cling to hope more than a song from rabble rouser do-gooder John Flynn.” – – Kathy O’Connell, WXPN John Flynn (https:\/\/\/) is an American singer-songwriter and activist known for his powerful music and tireless efforts on behalf of the lost and the lonely, the shackled and scarred. Long-time friend and Flynn champion Kris Kristofferson has called John “an important artist whose work in prisons, rehabs, and half-way houses is distilled into the truth and the beauty of heartfelt and heartwarming slices of life”. Among the recognitions John has received for his work are the Phil Ochs Award for Music and Social Activism for Political and Social Justice, the Dominican’s Shining Star Award, Rotary’s Paul Harris Fellow Award, and Pacem in Terris’s Peacemaker Among Us Award.
