"Meeting Johnny Hoban is always like a good fleadh cheoil for me.
I look forward to lingering with him upon ‘the plain
of the yew tree’.
He is a pillar in my life. Nelson would only be in the ha’penny place.
Take me home to Mayo Johnny Hoban...”

Christy Moore

"John Hoban's music brings us back to the source. He searched out music from old masters, showing deep respect for the social contexts in which music was played for generations".

Tom Clancy, Music Critic, San Francisco.

"Castlebar, Ireland Native, John Hoban - musician, singer, songwriter, poet - has travelled all over the world with his music. The ultimate multi-instrumentalist, John plays fiddle, accordian, mandolin, mado.cello, harmonica etc ... He writes, composes his own songs and music. It has been said that he could make music from a sheaf of oats .
Behind the talent and enthusiasm of John is a caring, wise artist. A simple man unfettered by much of the clutter we deem so important in modern society"

Sean Walsh, Arts Officer, Mayo County Council. Ireland.
