The Seahorse Folk-Club in York was the starting point at the age of 16. Since then John has sung traditional and contemporary material specialising in sea songs and shanties in clubs and festivals all over the UK.
After meeting up with the shanty crew "Landlocked" at Lancaster sang with them for many years then when they disbanded joined with Zeke Deighton as "Two old Bouys" and latterly in "Owd Chyvers".
Now, with the demise of "Owd Chyvers" singing solo again !!
