John is vocalist, guitarist and songwriter for Sally's Garden. His powerful lead vocals and driving guitar make classic songs like Whiskey in the Jar and Finnigans Wake come alive. His solid backing guitar rhythms keep the group's jigs and reels flying. Haunting three part harmonies with Sally and Megan using finger style guitar on airs and ballads are another strength John brings to the group's music. John has written over 50 original tunes for the group, many of which will be included in the upcoming Sally's Garden CD.

His favorite musicians include Silly Wizard, Clannad, Loreena McKennitt and Seven Nations. In addition to his musical interests, he is a marathon runner, wood carver, and graphic designer. He also enjoys geneaology, gardening and growing Texas native plants. He has been married to Sally (Fiddler for Sally's Garden) for 21 years. John and Sally have two children: Anne (19), and Richard (15).
