Johnny Duhan’s songs are performed worldwide in a variety of languages. This is thanks to the focus put on them by Christy Moore, The Dubliners, Dolores Keane and many other singers. His song ‘The Voyage’ has become a modern classic. Hot Press magazine editor, Niall Stokes, has predicted that ‘The Voyage’ will be around centuries from now; after most of the popular songs of our time are forgotten.
Christy Moore has termed Johnny “One of our greatest songwriters” while the late Ronnie Drew described him as “one of my favourite songwriters.” Sylvie Simmons (author of the acclaimed Leonard Cohen biography I’m Your Man) had this to say about part one of Johnny’s autobiography: “When I started to read it, I couldn’t put it down.” After reading a chapter of part two of ‘The Voyage‘, Eoghan Harris wrote: “I read it over a cup of coffee that went cold as I could not stop to sip.”
