“Johnny’s effortless vocals have graced the folk-scene since the emergence of Decameron in the early 1970s. An accomplished and experienced solo performer, he is a talented song writer and a fine interpretative singer. Johnny has recorded more than 14 albums including his latest River of Dreams and has worked as a solo performer, playing his own material and new arrangements of traditional folk songs. He is renowned for his clear vocals, guitar and keyboard playing. He had a hit collaboration with well-loved writer Laurie Lee on the album Edge Of Day, setting Lee's poems to music, and for twenty years, had a weekly show on BBC Radio Gloucestershire. Johnny writes and directs the music for touring Shakespeare productions by the Festival Players Theatre Company.”
