Roscó Flanagan Shares ‘Take This Hand’

August 13, 2021

Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, self-taught musician Roscó Flanagan is currently working on his debut album. Drawing influence from the Mississippi Delta blues artists and the countercultural folk sounds of the ‘60s alike, he has developed an intriguing guitar style and lyrical identity.

‘Take This Hand’ – his single released on the 13th of August – is a stripped back acoustic folk blues song about re/connection and re/affirmation. Attempting to capturing a sense of intimacy by modest means, the track was recorded, mixed and mastered on a shoestring with the basic equipment available to him during the lockdown periods in Ireland. He is eager to get back into the studio and put the finishing touches on the eight or nine other tracks recorded throughout this time.

Roscó has been featured on BBC 6 Radio, has played a handful of festivals around his homeland and has been given glowing reviews – including a feature in U & I Independent Music Magazine for an impromptu live music performance. He has been performing on the Dublin circuit for many years, honing his craft. Following the sudden passing of his father, Flanagan has been more eager than ever to pursue his vision and share his music with a wider audience.
