Upbeat. Hearty. Folk masters at work.

Folk music’s legendary trio of musical magpies Mike McGoldrick, John Doyle and John McCusker are on tour again in 2024. Expect top-class folk songs, tunes and charming bonhomie to boot.

John, John and Michel are three globally acclaimed artists, and when they come together to play songs from their vast repertoire it’s an evening to remember.

John Doyle is an Irish music linchpin and founding member of acclaimed group Solas, who has worked with Joan Baez, Linda Thompson and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

Glaswegian John McCusker has played with The Battlefield Band, Mark Knopfler and Bob Dylan, recorded with Paul Weller, and recently produced albums for Eddi Reader, Heidi Talbot and Kris Drever.

Mike McGoldrick from Manchester is a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner, founding member of Lúnasa, and current member of Capercaillie, who has worked with Mark Knopfler, Eddi Reader, John Cale.

Having shared stages and recording studios with everyone from Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler to Paul Weller, Joan Baez and Linda Thompson, Mike, John & John are a rare musical treat you’ll savour for a very long time.
