The Academy - Dublin / 13th October 2017
Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit have announced a headline show at The Academy, Dublin. This supports the latest release from Johnny Flynn “Sillion” which is out now.
The choice of Sillion as a title for his fourth album was one Flynn reached through a convergence of unlikely forces — of friendship, politics, poetry but it’s a word too that captures much of the album’s colour and mood — its measure of the times.
It’s an old word, describing the gleaming furrow of earth turned over when the plough cuts through the soil, and most notably used by Gerard Manley Hopkins in his 1877 poem The Windhover: “Sheer plod makes plough down sillion shine”.
