It is almost impossible to describe sound on paper, and mere words cannot pay justice to the magnificent voice of John MacNally. John’s dynamic stage personality and glorious voice are reflected in his more than 40 phenomenally successful albums, his top rated television specials and his many appearances both on stage and on television.
John’s warmth and versatility have made him equally at home, and overwhelmingly received, from Las Vegas to Carnegie Hall to the stage of the “Grand Ole Opry”.
Born in Dublin, John was a boy soprano singing in the church choir and at concerts. His early adult years were spent training for what he thought would be a strictly classical career. For a time Musical Comedy beckoned and among Johns’s favourite performances were “Carousel”, “South Pacific”, “Rose Marie” and “Desert Song”. He also had his own radio and TV series and completed numerous seasons in cabaret and theatre. It was during this time that he recorded his biggest hit song “Mary in the Morning”.
Over the years, John performed in Australia, America, Canada, Japan, London and triumphant return to his beloved Dublin and the concert platform. He has appeared with Bing Crosby, Joan Sutherland, Liberace, Jack Benny, Buddy Hackett, Telly Savallas, Jerry Lewis, Ernist Borgnine, The Mills Brothers, Roy Acuff, Minnie Pearl and more.
Some of John’s record albums include Lots of Love, Sincerely, That’s What Friends Are For, Just For You, Mary In The Morning, Songs of Peace and Love, Then Sings My Soul, Desert Song, Songs of Ireland, Before You Go, Evergreen, Love Songs, John MacNally Collection, Australian Trilogy, Naughty Marietta and more.
Words alone can only describe a part of John’s life and career, but in no way can they capture the joy and splendour that is realised by seeing or hearing John perform. Most recently a book on John’s life has been produced out of New York which traces his life from the country lanes of Dublin to the world’s most celebrated concert halls. A world traveller and performer who is a most gifted and talented artist!
