John Hoban – Castlebar native, John
Hoban - musician, singer, songwriter, poet - has travelled all over the world with his music. The ultimate multi-instrumentalist,
John plays fiddle, accordian, mandolin, mandocello, harmonica etc ... He writes, composes his own songs and music. It has been said
that he could make music from a sheaf of oats. Behind the talent and enthusiasm of John is a caring, wise artist. A simple man
unfettered by much of the clutter we deem so important in modern society. John Hoban's music brings us back to the source. He
searched out music from old masters, showing deep respect for the social contexts in which music was played for generations.
