May Day Alert: Flynn to tour to Delfest & with Billy Joe Shaver this month!

Come mid-May, Ashleigh Flynn & her band, the Porch Climbers, will blaze a trail from the Colorado Rockies to the mountains of Appalachia peddling Flynn’s brand of merry Americana. Flynn will showcase at Delfest in Cumberland MD and rock the Midwest with outlaw Billy Joe Shaver; with many gigs along the way.

One might want to venture out to hear the Portland, Oregon, resident based on this 2015 High Sierra Music Festival Live Review rom

Everyone smitten with Lucinda Williams, Patty Griffin and Gillian Welch should run, not walk, and immediately spin A Million Stars, the latest album from this Portland, Oregon-based singer-songwriter. Taken into the open air at High Sierra in a lovely day-starting Grandstand set, Flynn’s newest songs stomped their boots, plucked heart strings and generally charmed the britches off folks. Flynn is funny and slyly sincere, a storyteller able to snag details from the immediate moment, the night before, and whatever else floats into view to forge stage banter filled with off-handed wisdom and earthy understanding – fitting given how her tunes bulge with both traits.
