Johnny is highly respected for the depth and maturity of his music, and his distinctive and eloquently crafted songs have been recorded by a long list of musical household names including Mary Black, Mary Coughlan, Dolores Keane and Christy Moore, and a number of his songs, including “The Voyage”, have become standards of the genre.
