The Johnstons

The Travelling People (1966)


Hallmark HMA 237

The Johnstons rose to prominence in Dublin in the late '60s. Formed by Luci, Adrienne, and Michael Johnston, the group featured harmony singing with guitar accompaniment. Eventually, Michael left the group and was replaced by Mick Moloney (vocals, mandolin, banjo) and Paul Brady (vocals, guitar). This four-piece band became extremely popular in Ireland and toured the world, starting off the careers of both Moloney and Brady. Their albums are equally split between innovative treatments of traditional material and fairly derivative covers of American folk-pop. ~ Steve Winick, All Music Guide

Thanks for the DL - Johnstons are greatly underestimated in my opinion when Irish folk music is considered.

I'm another of the unlucky sods who missed this. I heard their version of The Travelling People on the radio several times when I was a child and it has always stuck with me. Its a pity that relatively few of their albums are on CD. PLEASE, if possible, re-upload...
