About the event

For tickets

Since the beginning of his musical career, John has recorded more than  25 albums, three of which have gone platinum while another has reached  double platinum status and yet another achieved a triple platinum  ranking. His latest offerings are entitled The Old House – a  collaboration with his long-time musical director, guitarist and artist  in his own right, Jason Fowler – and My Gentle Harp: A Tribute To Thomas  Moore, the musician, poet and singer who lived from 1779 to 1852. The  Old House offers such perennial favourites as Wild Mountain Thyme, The  Cliffs of Doneen and Red is the Rose, as well as the hilarious  crowd-pleaser I’m My Own Grandpa. With My Gentle Harp, John pays homage  to the man whose words have been used in opera, in the works of James  Joyce and have been featured in performances on some of the greatest  stages of the world. For more than 200 years, Thomas Moore’s poetry,  prose and music have touched the lives of millions and continue to have  an important influence on the arts to this day.
