DetailsJohn Williams started on the piano accordion at age 7 moving on to button accordion. His early influences, as well as his father were Liz Carroll, Johnny McGreevy, Elanor Neary, Jimmy Giblin and Jimmy Keane. At age 14 he took up the Concertina (becoming the 3rd generation to do so from his grandfather Johnny), starting on a Lachenal before moving to a Jeffries, getting help from Pat Burke from Cooraclare, Co. Clare. Trips back to Doolin and to the Willie Clancy festival helped hone his skills as well as his style which he has attached to Doolin. While in Doolin he played with Willie Beg Shannon, Gussie and Miko Russel(who was on his first solo cd). Following in the steps of John Nolan on accordion John Williams was the first American-born competitor to win the All Ireland Senior Concertina title. He has won 5 All-Ireland titles in all. Now he’s living up the street from our pub and we are honoured to have him partake in our 14th annual Hooley.
