Local crooner Bill Flannagan has performed around the area since he began playing R.T. Quinlan’s open mic nights in the mid 1990s. A throwback video of his 1995 performance of Leadbelly’s “Where Did You Sleep Last Night” recently popped up on Perfect Duluth Day’s video archives. Now, his rockin’, honky tonkin’, bluesy style includes a blend of covers and originals across almost every genre. According to Flannagan, the only requirement for a cover song to get into his repertoire is that it be a great song that moves him in one way or another.
