We are extremely pleased to announce that John Doyle will be playing and teaching at Spanish Peaks this year. There are few artists more respected in the genre or more in demand in the studio, as songwriter, and as performer. Name many of the most notable recordings and/or performers in Irish music and it’s a fair bet that John Doyle had something to do with them. Liz Carroll; Eileen Ivers; Karan Casey; Solas; Michael Black; Mary Black; the trio of McCusker, McGoldrick and Doyle; The Teetotalers (Martin Hayes, Kevin Crawford, John Doyle); and now Usher’s Island (Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny, Mike McGoldrick, Paddy Glackin and John Doyle) – a veritable who’s who of the greatest names in Irish music. These are just a very few of the stellar artists for whom John Doyle’s signature guitar sound, singing or songwriting is essential.
John’s reach and accomplishments are far too many to include here – I suggest you visit his website (https://www.johndoylemusic.com/) to read his incredible musical biography. And make sure you make plans to visit the Spanish Peaks Celtic Music Festival!
