An evening of eccentric songs and strange stories.
Little John’s shows combine lyrical comic storytelling with original music and songs played on
a variety of intriguing instruments creating magical soundscapes. “There are parts of Ireland that are less explored than the moon that’s where I go to get my songs.”
‘We rode a wave of emotion with him, the peaks and the troughs. And afterwards, we felt good, better than we had a couple of hours earlier. Everyone was smiling. Reflective smiles that come with having been privy to something special.’ – The Budapest Times
