John Francis Flynn’s second album, Look Over The Wall, See The Sky, is “like taking a walk through Dublin” — from the city’s rent crisis and inequality to Stoneybatter’s fertile pub scene that nurtures acts such as Lankum with gigs and lessons in Irish language and music. The folk singer and multi-instrumentalist escaped the horrors of a Disney Cruise residency to forge a solo career that combines the traditional — old tunes and instruments like the tin whistle, flute, and fiddle — with guitars, drones, and electronica.
