The Folk Music Society of NY presents John Doyle and Duncan Wickel, in concert, Friday, October 18th, 2016, 8:00PM at St. John's Church, 81 Christopher Street, Manhattan. Contribution: $25; members, $20; fulltime students and children under 15, $15. Doors open at 7:30 pm. When online sales end, tickets will be available at the door on the night of the concert.
From a musical family in Dublin, John’s influences include well known English folk singers Nic Jones, Martin Carthy, Richard Thompson, and The Watersons; Scottish singers Dick Gaughan and John Martin; and fellow Irishmen Paul Brady and Al O’Donnell, as well as his father, Sean Doyle - probably the biggest influence of all. John went on to form the highly acclaimed super group, Solas, with Seamus Egan, John Williams, Karan Casey and Winifred Horan which took the folk and Celtic music worlds by storm, in no small part due to John’s powerhouse rhythmic guitar style and innovative arrangements. As a member of Solas, John has appeared on many national TV and radio programs: NBC’s Today Show, programs for NPR and Public Radio International, A Prairie Home Companion. There are few artists more respected in the genre or more in demand in the studio, as songwriter, and as performer. John's Website
