Welcome to Johnny Duhan’s page here on podcasts.ie, here you will find audio recordings of Johnny’s work for your listening pleasure.

Born and raised in County Limerick, Johnny Duhan is the son of a sailor who travelled between the docks of Limerick and the ports of England and Europe.  Johnny Duhan is a singer/songwriter of enormous talent.  Formally the leader of R&B/soul cover band, Granny’s Intention in the late 1960’s, Johnny has become one of Ireland’s foremost songwriters.    He is in the enviable position of being an author in word and song, his autobiographical books “There is a Time”, and the recently published “To the Light (unsung)” serve to strengthen his lyric adding more colour and depth to his words.

As Johnny says himself his life works are reflected in four album collections, they are “Just Another Town”, “The Voyage”, “To the Light” and “Flame” which he says correspondent with the four chapters of his autobiography to date.

Johnny’s songs have been covered by Christy Moore, Mary Black, Dolores Keane and The Dubliners to name just a few. His song, “The Voyage,” has become a classic of contemporary Irish music.  The late Ronnie Drew said of Johnny ‘He is one of my favourite songwriters’.
