Hermon Oswestry
8:00pm - Sat, 4th May 2024

“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.”
-The Wall Street Journal

Over the past 20 years and more he has established himself as the guitarist-accompanist of choice for not only Joan Baez and Mary Chapin Carpenter but also the great Chicago-born Irish fiddler Liz Carroll and bluegrass stars Tim O’Brien and Dirk Powell. Add in a GRAMMY nomination for the album Double Play and his place in the Transatlantic Sessions band, singer songwriter John Doyle is one of the greatest folk artists of our time. Chris Quinn has received glowing reviews in the music press for his solo releases and live performances. Maverick Magazine called him ”

A master of the acoustic guitar and a quality songwriter”. With roots in both England and Scotland and spending part of his early career touring across the USA; his own songs are heavily influenced by British, Celtic and American traditional music.

Live you can expect masterful finger-style delta blues, bluegrass and swing / jazz guitar and some of the finest acoustic guitar playing you’ve ever heard!
