John McIntyre

Instruments: Guitar

John grew up in the Cooley Mountains of north County Louth where he took up guitar aged eight.   He began his career as electric guitarist with the successful indie band, The Revs with whom he performed at Oxygen and Slane in Ireland, Reading and Leeds in the UK, and toured extensively in USA, Australia and Europe.   John studied classical guitar and piano for many years, and from early childhood was immersed in the language, songs and traditional dance music of south west Donegal – his father’s homeplace.
