John performed with his wife Marie as Freespirit for several years at www.fastnetmaritime.com. He died recently from Covid 19.
John and Marie also organised a festival in Glengariff for many years based around Harringtons pub, he also gave his time generously to teaching young musicians in the area. he was a contributor to this forum under freespiritceol.
I have no further details. I send my condolences to Marie and to his family and friends R.I.P.

John has videos uploaded on a YouTube channel.

He apparently took a lot of photos of the 2012 Fastnet Maritime and Folk Festival in 2012 at Ballydehob County Cork and put up a video slide show.

I've never seen a Facebook page like this one, but it appears to be for Free Spirit. Odd how large the photos are.

Free Spirit have songs posted on Reverbnation.

I'll stop there. A Google Search has lots more results.

This is indeed very sad news. I last saw him just over a year ago when I bought a Portuguese Mandola from him. We had a very good session in Kenmare with it.

My condolences to Marie and his family in England.

Sad news. Thanks to Stilly River Sage for the selection of posts on the web. He was very much involved in the community and with Folk Music. My condolences to all those who miss and love him RIP.
