Category - Music Date - 11/02/2023 8:00 pm
As an artist his music appeals to listeners across genres and generations while his live performances captivate audiences around the world. With a distinctive almost sean-nos quality to his vocal style his performances flit effortlessly between beautiful poetry tinged with melancholy to roguish, irreverent humour which charms, mesmerises and entertains in equal measure.
A two-time Meteor Award winner for best Folk/Trad act, John is one of the most accomplished songwriters in Ireland. With an extensive back catalogue beginning with the 1997 album The Wells Of The World, his songs have been covered by Christy Moore, Sharon Shannon, Sean Keane and many others.
His latest album of an extensive catalogue In Another Light was released in October 2022 – a career spanning album recorded live at the Right Here Right Now Festival at Cork Opera house.
