Johnny Duhan started his career as a fifteen year old front man with Granny’s Intentions, the most popular beat
group in Ireland in the 60s.
After rousing Dublin with their soul touch, they moved to London, were signed to the prestigious
Deram label, enjoyed considerable success
and disbanded before Johnny was twenty one. Johnny started writing folk songs,
poetry and prose at this stage. In a career spanning 40 years,
his greatest achievement is a quartet of epic albums -
Just Another Town, To The Light, The Voyage and Flame - which correspond to the four
chapters of his lyrical autobiography,
TO THE LIGHT. Johnny’s songs are sung worldwide in a variety of languages, thanks to the focus put on
them by Christy
Moore, The Dubliners, Mary Black and hosts of other Irish and international singers. His song The Voyage has become a modern
classic. Christy Moore has termed Johnny “One of our greatest songwriters.” And the late Ronnie Drew described
him as “one of my favourite songwriters.”
A new album, The Burning Word, has just been released .www.johnnyduhan.com
