‘Cyclones and Sickness’ by Sean Flanagan

Here we have the final episode from the first Stories in the Key of GC event.


Sean Flanagan, aka Flan, delivered this story only a few hours after the death of his Father. For a guy best known for making people laugh, this story explores the power of love and family in facing sickness and death. The music is largely improvised over a number of pre prepared themes. Sean and myself never actually rehearsed this story.

I play Sean’s own beloved steel string guitar and Jake Morton joins in on drums at the end.

Thanks for your honesty and bravery in sharing this story Sean. It is a powerful performance.
