Saw John Doyle perform with John Williams at the Abbey Pub in Chicago a few years ago. There I heard him sing a beautiful cover of Dolores keane’s song The Month of January. Thrilled, thrilled, thrilled to find he decided to record it on his newest album.
This album is a mix of tunes and songs. The 2nd track is a version of Wild Colonial Boy, and I must admit I don’t care for this version too much, but that’s just me. Guest musicians and singers on this album include Seamus Egan, Liz Carroll, John Williams, Kate Rusby, and Linda Thompson.
On a more trivial note, I was a bit disappointed to read in the liner notes that Doyle is married, which I didn’t know before. I have a little crush on him.

Yes, very married

John is married and has a daughter that’s a year old. Sorry. Cathy, John, and child live in Asheville, NC these days.

Re: john doyle tabs

Sorry, no, but I’d really like to find a transcription of Jonny D’s from his first album.

John Doyle’s Eddie Kelly’s

Hi all. Out of lurkdom to get some help (sorry I’m not any….you’d have to go to reso-nation.org to find me helpful at all).

I’m recently besotted with John Doyle’s Eddie Kelly’s (on Wayward Son). I looked up Eddie Kelly’s here but it doesn’t seem to be the same tune. Am I right? Anyone familiar with Doyle’s version? Is there music for it somewhere?

Thanks all.

Re: John Doyle’s Eddie Kelly’s

Well, the tune I know as Eddie Kelly’s is listed here as The Meelick Team; but you must know that already because that’s what’s linked to John Doyle’s Wayward Son listing…

just listened to the snippet of that track available online at Amazon, and it’s a very different version for sure. Sorry I can’t help you…
