The story of County Mayo singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist
and teacher in his own words.
"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...”
|EPISODES is a new cd of songs and music which bridges the worlds of
improvisation, experimentation and tradition. |
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.

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 .
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
