Does anyone know how to reach Johnny McEvoy? Is he still performing? I'm particularly in speaking with him regarding an event in New Jersey, just outside NYC, for late October or the first Saturday in November.

He appeared here a couple of years back.
They should know how to reach him.

Good luck

Mudcat isn't a very good place to track down Irish musicians. This site is used primarily by Anglo sorts of folk both sides the pond, and the few folk knowledgeable about Irish trad aren't here that regularly anymore.

Since you may not find too many Irish trad pure droppers about these parts when you need them, I'd go straight to the main web resource for Irish traditional music, and post a message to the IR-TRAD Mailing List. I'm certain you'll get an avalanche of responses on how to reach yer man there.

Johnny McEvoy isn't a Trad musician.
So Trad musicians may not know all that much about him, in that case.

I think the problem here might be, that there aren't too many Johnny McEvoy pure droppers around these parts when you need them.

I'm sure Catríona, Antoinette, Grainne or Lisa would be delighted to help you out, were you to contact them.

At least, then you wont have to go through an avalanche of responses by people claiming to know how reach yer man there

Astoundingly enough, the folks at IR-TRAD actually know one or two musicians who aren't trad. Even some o' the Country Oirish ones.

Imagine that.

Or you could mail his record company directly, Leo.

Fat lot of help you are, 06.36

You have now moved from describing McEvoy as being Irish Trad to being Irish Country.

... and shown you're a bigoted bastard/bitch to boot.

Stop complaining about the resources of this site, and get your finger out...

Literally

Form there to contact his record company. They in turn might give you the e-mail of his management or him. Luck to you.

Hey 06:46 PM, I think you need to calm down. I haven't insulted anyone, and there is nothing bigoted about pointing out that Mudcat is not THE web resource for Irish music. There is nothing bigoted AT ALL about telling a poster coming here for information, that this website is used more by people from the Brit folk side. All I did was suggest to the original poster the information he was seeking could likely be tracked down more quickly through an Irish music web resource, which I provided a link to for his convenience. What in god's name is bigoted about that?

There is nothing wrong with this website being largely dominated by people most interested in the British and Anglo American folk traditions (there ain't much about blues music here either, and there are much better online forums for the discussion of American blues, for instance), or with people knowing that fact, or with someone pointing out that fact to a person who is requesting information about music/musicians who aren't from the Brit or Anglo American folk traditions. Most of the big online resources for Irish music don't link to this website for a reason--and that reason is it isn't an Irish music website. I would have given the same advice to someone coming here looking for information about a Breton musician. Or a Cape Breton musician. That doesn't make this a bad website, it just makes it oriented to a specific genre of music, like most music websites are.

One of the ways we can be helpful to people coming here looking for information, is to tell them where they are most likely to find the information they are looking for elsewhere on the web, when we think it likely no one here knows the answer. That is being helpful, not bigoted.

There was no reason for you to go ballistic over my initial response, or my humorous response to your subsequent attack on my initial response regarding "Country Oirish" music. That was a reference to posting a request to the IR-TRAD list about a genre of music the trad pure droppers regularly make good natured fun of on their mailing list. It isn't a big deal. The Irish music community (from trad to jazz to classical to country) is quite small in Ireland and Britain, and people know each other. I'm guessing since the editor of Irish Music Magazine is one of the regulars over on the IR-TRAD mailing list, along with a few very knowledgeable contributors (like Fintan from Claddagh Records), that they might know off-hand who Johnny's booking agent is.

Sure Leo Hurley can contact the record company, and try and track down the booking agent that way, but as most everyone knows, that can be a very slow way to go. If there is a resource where Leo can go type in his question nearly as easily and quickly as he can here at Mudcat, why wouldn't he take advantage of it when there is a good chance someone might know the answer, or know where to direct him quickly to get one? Why such defensiveness--why this "turf" bullshit Guest 06:46 PM? Johnny McEvoy is an Irish musician. I suggested Leo go to an Irish music website and ask his question, thinking if he wants to book Johnny he probably is looking for the quickest way to reach him. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out, now does it?

Guest 06:46 PM, it appears you are more interested in flaming a poster who you disagree with (and being an asshole about it by name calling and trying to ratchet this thread up to the level of the incendiary Cyber-Troubles) rather than helping Leo find the musician he is looking for. So you go for it. You're doing really well on that count so far.

Ah c'mon! What a way to respond to someone who offered genuine help. Mudcat is a great forum catering for it's own genre. Other forums are used much more widely by pro/am Irish musicians. That is a fact. It isn't the centre of everyones universe.

Interesting sort of thread.

in a way the sort of nitpicking (no offence inteded to either gentleman) about what sort of artist JM is, defines so much of what is different about the english and the irish folk music.

I love the way JM can do trad stuff like Shores of amerikay and slieve gallon braes and then do a Johnny cash thing. Its a sort of segue that he has passed on to Daniel O'Donnel and others. in England it would be almost unthinkable for Cliff to sing the lincolnshire poacher.

its one of the things that makes Irish music a living culture , the fact that very mainstream pop artists are within a hairsbreadth of trad material. And this means there is a format that keeps ordinary folk in touch with trad material. In England the only people doing trad material do the funny voices and funny guitar styles - certainly the only people that get played on the radio!

value what you've got, don't argue about it!

all the best to all parties in the squabble and particularly Johnny MacEvoy
