Name: COLONY PRESENTS: Ian Flanigan, Lorkin O'Riley
Date: March 16, 2018
Event Description:
"Ian Flanigan “inspires a nostalgic sentiment akin to wistful escapism… [he is] emotional without being weepy, vulnerable without being pitiful, and conceptual while still remaining relatable” (Gallagher, SUNY editorial). Flanigan's sound—an eclectic blend of progressive folk and percussive fingerstyle—is reminiscent of the road less traveled, paved with poignant lyrical truths of his past. Local to upstate New York, Flanigan’s songwriting features his rich, husky voice and evocative lyrics highlighting the rural landscape of his compositions. Each song serenades the unity of life and an affinity for atonement—a sound that's provocative, and familiar.”

"Since the release of his critically acclaimed, debuted ED “After the Thaw” Lorkin has played extensively on the New York City folk club scene, sharing stages with national acts such as Charlie Parr and Niall Connolly. Music from that EP was also featured on the Burberry summer playlist 2016. “He may call Hudson Home, but Lorkin O’Reilly’s music exudes the Scottish terrain from whence he recently came with naught but a guitar on his back, a head full of song, and hands schooled in UK folk avatars John Martyn and Nick Drake” (Chronogram Magazine 2016)."
