MAIN TALK – JOHN FEENEY – FORGOTTEN IRISH TENOR FROM MAYO

The young John Feeney with accompanist Helen Merchant.

By Harry Bradshaw

John Feeney was born in Swinford, Co. Mayo in 1903. After a spell working as a young man on building sites in England and Ireland, he sailed for the United States in 1928. There, he decided to have his voice trained and in the mid-1930s he embarked on a career as a professional singer on the recital stage, in the recording studio, and, as a singer / presenter on national commercial radio. This audio-visual presentation will tell the story of John Feeney’s fascinating life and career and will be illustrated by a selection of his records, his concert hall recordings and off-air extracts from his 26-year broadcast career on American radio.
