Summer Concert Series: Myra Flynn & Paul Boffa

June 7, 2018, 12:00PM - 1:00PM

Enjoy lunchtime tunes all summer long with FREE City Hall Park Summer Concerts. Bring your lunch, meet up with friends or coworkers, and enjoy free music.

Singer/songwriter Myra Flynn spends her career embracing dichotomy. Half Irish and half African American, her original indie/soul songs blend soulful vocals with a lyrical delivery that doesn't let one get too comfortable. As the New England Deli Magazine puts it, "Her vocal influences have as much in common with Ani Difranco and Shawn Colvin as they do with Rihanna and Jill Scott."
 
Never Mind the Mourning is Flynn's fourth body of work, recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Grammy Award-winning producers Jared Lee Gosselin and Tony Ghantous. While Flynn has been known in the past for her more down tempo singer/songwriter work, this album is her first exploration in what she calls indie/pop. While the sound may be more pop, the lyrics are often not about what one might think they are as Flynn sneaks in themes of American ware fare, infidelity and domestic abuse between the sugary sounds. 

Make plans to attend all of our free concerts this summer. Admission is free and every performance starts at noon.
