Johnny McEvoy is one of the most renowned folk artists of the last few decades. And he will be performing in Kilmovee Community Centre
His first big break came in late 1966 when he recorded “Mursheen Durkin,” an old ballad from the west of Ireland. It topped the charts at Number 1 for three consecutive weeks.
The following year, in the summer of 1967, he toured the USA where he finished his tour in Carnegie Hall in New York City and consecutively landed another #1 hit. He went on to write many more songs, including “Long Before Your Time,” “Michael,” “Going To California,” “The Ballad Of John Williams,” “Richman’s Garden,” “Never Learned To Dance,” and “The Ballad of Anne Frank.”
