The Courthouse Arts Centre is very pleased to welcome Johnny Duhan to Tinahely, this performance will be among the last from him. His songs are performed worldwide in a variety of languages, thanks to the focus put on them by Christy Moore, The Dubliners, Dolores Keane and hosts of other singers.
His song “The Voyage” has become a modern classic. Hot Press magazine editor, Niall Stokes, has predicted that “The Voyage” will be around centuries from now, after most popular songs of our time are forgotten. Christy Moore has termed Johnny “One of our greatest songwriters.” And the late Ronnie Drew described him as “one of my favourite songwriters”.
“Best songwriter of his generation, and I include Van Morrison and Paul Brady in that assessment” Joe Ambrose
“I’m constantly amazed that the world hasn’t found out how good his mediatations on love and loss really are.” John Boland
“A man who cares not a whit for trends, but rather on whose reason for living is to transcend such creative limitations.” Tony Clayton-Lea
