Johnny Duhan, legendary song writer comes to The Source

johnny-duhanWho is Johnny Duhan? He is regarded as ‘one of our great songwriters’ by Christy Moore and Ronnie Drew. He is the man who wrote Christy Moore’s song, The Voyage. He is also appearing at The Source Arts Centre, Thurles on Friday 4th June.

Hailing from Limerick, Johnny Duhan cut his musical teeth in the legendary Irish rock band Granny’s Intentions. He later went solo as a song writer and has been very successful as his songs have been covered by Christy Moore, The Dubliners, The Irish Tenors, Celtic Thunder, Mary Black and a host of other performers. In fact, he rarely gets to tour and perform his own music and each time he does it is an event in itself.

On this tour, Johnny is taking themes of family. His inspiration is both the family he grew up in and the family he helped form himself. Life is an ocean, love is a boat, in troubled waters it keeps us afloat, to quote his song The Voyage which forms the centre piece for this tour.

So come to see Johnny at The Source and get up close and personal with one of our most talented songwriters.

Johnny Duhan is at The Source Arts Centre on Friday 4th June at 8pm. Tickets €18 / €16 concession.
