"Bound for Botany Bay", John Doyle

"Bound for Botany Bay", performed by John Doyle ( in concert at the Institute of Musical Traditions (, Takoma Park, Maryland, USA on November 16, 2011.

John Doyle is renowned as one of the most talented guitarists performing in either the Irish or Appalachian traditions. As an accompanist, he adapts to and compliments the style of those he plays with, but his rhythmic and melodic contributions do much more than simply provide a background, creating complex, fascinating layers within the tunes without ever overshadowing the principal performer. Fans who have seen John Doyle perform as a band member or accompanist have also been treated to his solo guitar work, his wonderful, lyrical singing and, more recently, his dynamic fiddling.
