Andy Flannagan is a London-based, Irish singer-songwriter who was previously a hospital doctor but whose proudest moment as an Irishman was captaining England’s Barmy Army during the Ashes in Australia. He spends much of his time with his wife Jenny working out how to be downwardly mobile in the centre of London. His album “Drowning in the Shallow” was described as a “near-perfect album” by Cross Rhythms magazine, but he is still disappointingly imperfect. www.andyflan.com.
He sings songs that speak of broken things being made whole, calling people to less comfortable places, whether that is round the corner, or on the other side of the world His songs have been used on BBC TV, ITV and Channel4 as well fronting campaigns for Tearfund, Christian Aid and many other agencies.
He is also the Director of the Christians on the Left, based in Parliament - www.christiansontheleft.org.uk . They exist to be a prophetic voice to left-sided politics and the church. A key driving passion of Andy’s is to see a just re-wiring of the global economic system. He is also co-director of Christians in Politics – www.christiansinpolitics.org.uk.
