Not just a World Series winning baseball player/coach – he’s a seasoned fingerstyle singer-songwriter of Americana/folk with a talented band and road stories to tell…
He is one of the enduring hard men of professional sports, logging 34 of his 55 years with professional baseball. He has been to the World Series four times – once as a player and three times as a coach, finally wrapping his battered, dusty hands around the World Series Trophy in 2010…and yet again in 2012 and 2014. Impressive credentials for any man, but here’s the thing: baseball is only a part of his story.
He is also a prolific and talented songwriter.
That’s right – this ferociously hard-working baseball legend is also an award-nominated musician who regularly packs venues across the globe. He is a seasoned fingerstyle legend of Americana music with a gift for crafting potent, resonant songs and delivering energetic, emotional live shows.
His name is Tim Flannery and he is writing some of the most gorgeous acoustic music to roll out of California since the halcyon days of the Seventies folk explosion.
Tim has spent the majority of his life on the road, balancing his career and his creative drive with the love of his wife and three children. His music explores the depths of emotion that only loneliness and solitude can reveal, as well as the profound emotional highs unlocked in a golden surfing session or in the majesty of a star-spangled sky from a back porch in Kentucky.
With a voice as smooth as Kentucky bourbon and heart worn on both sleeves, Flan’s concerts ebb and flow with brilliant melodies, soaring harmonies and themes of love, travel and connecting with the Great Spirit. And of course, he sings about baseball.
