Ireland is a country of miracles and one of the 20th century miracles that exists in Ireland today is that folk music is chart music. A large proportion of the singles that make the top 10 charts in Ireland are folk ballads. The Johnstons' first ever record was a
ballad, "The Travelling People" by Ewan MacColl which went straight to Number 1in the Irish charts and was one of the best selling singles in Irish record history. Since then The Johnstons have had three more hits and here now is their first LP. As
with their previous recordings, they have remained faithful to the Irish ballads that brought them success. In three years they have become a highly polished professional and versatile group, full of vocal strength, instrumental virtuosity and interesting original harmony. They have a freshness and vitality that is rare, the more so when it is combined with an obvious strong commercial appeal.
With these qualities, The Johnstons can claim comparison with the best folk groups in the world and seem sure to go on to international success. But they will do so because they have built on strong and splendid foundations-a great love and
understanding of the best in Irish music.
