TIM FLANNERY & THE LUNATIC FRINGE
OCTOBER 30, 2021 • 3PM SHOW
ROCK • COUNTRY • BLUEGRASS
Throughout his baseball career, Tim Flannery had his guitar in hand. His uncle, Hal Smith; hero of the 1960 World Series with the Pittsburgh Pirates was one of Flans earliest baseball and musical influences. He was also a songwriter and carried a Gibson J 35 everywhere. I grew up never knowing you couldnt do both.
Flan writes songs about his family roots, love, and the surrender that comes when you understand some things are out of your control. He writes about baseball and being on the road, the call of the highway, and the beacon of home. He has an ace band, the Lunatic Fringe, that bring his songs roaring to life in various musical genres like bluegrass, country, and rock.
Flan has three World Series Championship rings as a third-base coach with the San Francisco Giants, and he has released 14 albums of original music over the years.
He and his wife, Donna, created the Love Harder Project, a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization dedicated to anti-bullying and funded by proceeds from his performances and public donations.
In 2020, Flannery developed a life-threatening staph infection, but after two of the hardest months of his life was able to recover at home with help from his ever-loving family.
Now Tim Flannery is healthy and ready to play shows with his band. He is booking shows and writing new songs about his experiences for his 15th album.
