The Midlands Irish Singer - Irish Singer / Guitarist

The Midlands Irish Singer was raised on songs, stories and the culture of his native City of Dublin. This Irish singer, guitarist  and former street entertainer has charmed the public both inside and outside the theatre.

The Midlands Irish Singer performed as part of a duo for many years, playing all over the UK and abroad, performing alongside stars such as Bob Monkhouse, Kenneth Williams, Dianna Dors, and Acker Bilk to name but a few.

While making a live television show with David Jacobs and Cliff Richard he was offered a twelve month contract at the Latin Quarter in London's West End. It was during this time that he was accepted into the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and had to perform regular night time shows whilst studying at probably the best known drama school in the world.

Now with much of life's rich tapestry under his belt, The Midlands Irish Singer is still working hard performing his one man show, filled with songs, humour and tales as rich as a glass of Irish stout.

He is available as a solo singer guitarist performing traditional and upbeat Irish music - perfect for weddings, funerals and parties.

The Midlands Irish Singer - Irish Singer / Guitarist Feedback

He was excellent!

Angela Gutteridge, (February 2019)

It was a pleasure to welcome him to the stage for the first acoustic music night at the national brewery centre Burton on Trent. The night was themed an Irish night so who better to kick it all off than this act, from the very beginning he had the audience in his pocket with his songs and little quips, just what the doctor ordered to entertain a new crowd at this venue.

Terry Wood,

For me and many others the night was stolen by this performer. One man one guitar and a drum machine plus a lifetime of experience. Reminded me very much of when Neville King took to the same stage a few years ago, he too showed how to connect with his audience and taught many of us a lesson in stage craft.

B Oakley,

I saw you perform at a 60th party on the 16th June, at the Holy Ghost. I thought you were excellent and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Best wishes for the future...

John,
