Tim Flannery & Friends Return To Maritime Museum Of San Diego For One-of-a-kind Live Musical Performance Aboard Star Of India
Baseball player turned musician and philanthropist takes the stage for “Prevail”, Flannery’s holiday charity concert Saturday, December 18
San Diego, CA — Home to a world-class collection of historic sailing ships, steam-powered boats, and submarines, each offering entertaining and educational exhibits, Maritime Museum of San Diego announces the return of Tim Flannery and Friends performing a colorful blend of folk, country, traditional music and storytelling Saturday, December 18, 2021. After a tough year of pandemic stress and fears, and overcoming his personal health challenges, Tim Flannery, the beloved former San Diego Padres, MLB broadcaster network show announcer and analyst turned musician and passionate philanthropist will perform his new appropriately-themed concert “Prevail” staged aboard the Star of India; a welcome occasion of celebration for “Flan” and his audience of adults 21 and over. 100% of the proceeds from this concert are donated to the Maritime Museum of San Diego.
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 Flan’s earliest baseball and musical influences. “He was also a songwriter and carried a Gibson J 35 everywhere. I grew up never knowing you couldn’t 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, which 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.
