John Doyle

The finest player of Irish traditional music

Hailed by many as the finest player of Irish traditional music, guitarist, singer and songwriter John Doyle makes a welcome return to the Ram Club. His virtuoso fingerstyle and percussive strumming techniques create a broad range of moods and atmospheres, from toe-tapping jigs to sumptuous, melodic airs. Born into a musical family in Dublin, John formed Celtic supergroup, Solas, and has gone on to work with many top names in the folk world – Joan Baez and Mary Chapin Carpenter among them. He has made many radio and TV appearances, featured on movie soundtracks and is always in demand as a skilled session musician.
