    John Doyle (Ire) £11/£9 (OAP’s/students) Acoustic / Americana Thursday 22 May John Doyle is a superb guitarist in performance with his talents as an outstanding singer-songwriter to the fore. He is world-renowned for his work as founding member of the groundbreaking Irish/American band Solas; his own critically acclaimed solo recordings on Compass Records, and in partnerships with musicians such as Tim O’Brien, Andy Irvine, Bruce Molsky, Liz Carroll, Kate Rusby, Mike McGoldrick, John McCusker; Heidi Talbot; Kris Drever & Karen Matheson; for the Transatlantic Sessions at Celtic Connections. John is a Grammy nominee, has performed for President Obama at the White House, and has been lauded with every accolade imaginable in Irish music. Widely considered the finest Irish guitarist performing today his formidable talents as multi-instrumentalist, arranger, singer, songwriter and interpreter of traditional Irish and English song have made him one of the most in-demand artists in Irish, Bluegrass, Americana and Folk over the last 20 years. ‘Doyle on guitar has risen to a level occupied by him alone. No one in Irish traditional music is a better guitarist than him right now. … In addition, his vocal delivery and his song writing have never been more impressive. Earle Hitchner, the Wall Street Journal Few singer/songwriters are as adept as John Doyle when it comes to developing the inveterate themes of Irish Traditional music.

Q: Is there anyway to get a accurate guitar tab for The Arabic? It is my favorite song I have heard in a long time but I have no way to play it as nobody seems to know how.
A: Hi there Dale - Unfortunately, there is no tab for any of John's songs. He's thinking about writing tab for some of them but has just been too busy so far. Is that something you would be interested in? Keep the practice up. Cheers Cathy Peterson Business Manager, John Doyle
