Legendary Irish Musician Johnny McEvoy with a career spanning over 60 years in the business will perform LIVE in the Great National Hotel Ballina on Sunday 19th February from 8:00pm.
Johnny’s big break came in late 1966 when he recorded a song called “Mursheen Durkin” an old ballad from the west of Ireland.
In 1966 in Dublin he had played support to an up and coming band “The Rolling Stones” and for the very first time witnessed the mobbing and screaming of the fans.
Johnny formed a band in the 1970’s and went Electric! His heart was now torn between the fashionable Showbands of that era and his one true love Folk Music.
