Tim Flannery & Friends Perform at MMSD

Dec 14, 2019

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 14, 2019.

“Flan” has spent more than thirty years in the Major Leagues as a baseball analyst for the MLB Network and currently as a broadcaster for NBC Bay Area Sports. He has consistently toured and played shows in support of his original music. The music now also serves another purpose: every cent from CD sales, merchandise, and ticket sales benefits his non-profit, the Love Harder Project, for anti-bullying and anti-violence programs across the country.
