Johnny McEvoy

Irish Music legend Johnny McEvoy celebrates 5 decades in the Music Industry. He is considered one of the most enduring and talented singer/songwriters.

The son of a bus driver and house-wife, Johnny got his first break when he played support to the Rolling Stones in the Adelphi Cinema in Dublin in 1965. Soon he was touring the States performing in such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall.

The rest is history.

Johnny released his book 'My Songs, My Stories, My Life In Music' last year.

In the book, Johnny reflects on his life, love and passions in over fifty years in music. Knowing how the twists and turns of a person's life can trigger some of the strongest creative ideas, Johnny has masterfully crafted them into unforgettable songs and stories.

Through the mirror of over 50 of his best-known recordings, Johnny's personal essays and notes around each song show a man with a deep empathy and understanding of the people, places and historical events that have shaped his extraordinary musical life.

He shares his personal song notes, lyrics and an exclusive selection of notation in this intimate memoir from one of the great musical storytellers of our time.

He performs in the National Concert Hall on 19th February 2019
