Bio

John Flanagan and the Begin Agains blend Americana stylings with deeply honest Australian storytelling to create their simple and expressive style of bluegrass/folk. With comparisons to artists such as Gillian Welch, James Taylor and Alison Krauss the 4-piece Melbourne band has developed a stirring sound characterized by rich melodies and delicate acoustic textures. In late 2008 John joined forces with seasoned musicians Jane Patterson, Andy Zito and Mark Zito to record his debut solo album 'Meet Me In Between' and they have been playing together ever since. The end of 2011 saw them playing a run of festivals through 4 different states including Woodford & Cygnet Folk Festivals and Queenscliff Music Festival. At gigs and festivals around the country they continue to impress audiences and fellow musicians alike with their lush vocal harmonies and thought provoking lyrics. 2012 is already shaping up to be a big year for the band, with an EP launch in May followed by a tour to the US in September/October.

Irish pub music. not a 'ragey'(for want of a better word). my wife (cassiopeia) says this is as if the dropkick murpheys were not as full on, and mingled with the whitlams, this would be the lovechild, and general partying and merryness with sam gangee and bilbo baggins dancing and stuff.
