Johnny comes from Scartaglin in the heart of Sliabh Luachra.He was born into a family steeped in traditional music. At an early age his love of music was encouraged by his Uncle Willie, himself a well-known musician. Willie taught Johnny the accordion and in a very short time Johnny was well known on the Feis ceol and Fleadh Ceol circuit winning seventy-four First Prizes in seventy-four Competitions. Johnny is an accomplished musician and plays many instruments but his first love has always been the accordion. Johnny enjoys playing all types of traditional music but he is best known for his lovely rendition of Polka Set music and the crowd’s knock sparks off the floor at every Dance.
