Announcing Fall 2016 John Doyle solo and duo dates (with Duncan Wickel or Colin Farrell - both stunning fiddlers) for the Fall. Check out the Tour page and get your tix now for these very special concerts.
For those lucky people on the other side of the pond who have been witness to the fantastic music that is McGoldrick, McCusker and Doyle, the trio will be heading back into the studio in November to record a much anticipated (and requested) second CD. Look for a release date of February, 2017 and UK tour dates to be announced soon.
Also in the Spring, look for a new release by legends, Usher's Island. Usher's Island is none other than Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny, Paddy Glackin, Mike McGoldrick and John Doyle - an impossibly accomplished and historic line-up. If you're lucky enough to be near one of their performances, by all means, GO!
John will be taking some much needed down time for the remainder of the 2016 and then Spring 2017 will likely see the release of a new John Doyle solo CD. John also has some super new creative solo and guitar collaborative projects in the beginning stages, so keep checking back here for updates!

"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."
