We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information on this evening’s programme – Easter Sunday, 1th April 2020. (S.R.)
He once worked for the ESB and is a qualified electrician and draughtsman, but you won’t identify him as such.
Having spent five years studying the violin and classical music, he eventually joined, arguably, the wildest and most famous Irish band of all.
This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene speaks to John Sheahan about life prior, during and after the Dubliners.
Ronnie Drew, Luke Kelly, Barney Mckenna and Ciaran Burke have all passed on, leaving John as the only remaining original member.
Having waited until his 80th year and prompted by his family, Sheahan has just released his debut solo album – ‘Flirting Fiddles’. It’s a collection of his own compositions, some of which were written many years ago and confined to the attic. There’s the beautiful ‘Autumn in Paris’ and ‘Waltzing with Angels’, which he has dedicated to the memory of Sr. Eugene a nun who often played music with him.

“What Matters” – I wrote this song at the start of the week on my way home to Millstreet from New York. I had to leave because of what is going on in the world at the moment. I’m lucky in a way because that decision is even harder for others who are facing and will face some very tough times. That unbelievable Irish community will get those people over there through it. As will our communities here. This song describes some tough situations but it is also written in the hope and knowledge that we’re going to come together and support each other through it. It’s an appreciation of everyone’s efforts and bravery. There is gratification growing in me right now for the small things in life and I hope this resonates with some if not many. Stay safe❤️ We can’t share a lot at the moment so it’s pretty safe to share this away mad – Darren Kiely
