Now available for pre-order – All Those Years – a handsome, 2-DVD compilation of documentary and concert film from early in John’s career. Order now to receive your autographed copy by March 2018.
Well, what a wonderful year of touring that was – one of our busiest and most enjoyable we have had in many years.
We embark on a somewhat new and exciting direction in 2018 – I have welcomed two new members to our band: Sheila Carabine and Amanda Walther. Sheila and Amanda are the extraordinary folk group known as Dala and we will be doing a lot of shows together in the coming months and for the entire 2018 Christmas tour. They are a joy to work with and share a stage with. We will be recording a new Christmas CD with Sheila and Amanda early in 2018 for release in the fall.
The double-DVD retrospective set will be released on March 25th, 2018. It will be a limited edition release, all of which will be autographed, and pre-orders will be accepted starting February 12th 2018. I am very excited about finally getting this package complete and into your hands.
The new Irish CD (title TBA) is in the works and will be ready for Fall 2018 along with the new Christmas CD (mentioned above). I know it will be one of the best I have done as the repertoire is from some of the finest writers Ireland has ever produced.
The touring schedule is pretty much complete for 2018 with several more dates yet to be confirmed for the Summer and Fall seasons.
We want to wish each and every one of you a blessed, happy and healthy new year. May this year be your best one ever.
See you on the road,
John, Jason, Mark, Charles, Sheila and Amanda
