John Gannon was born in Droim, Leitir Mór, Co. Galway, where he learned his music. John, like most back then ,was self taught.
In 1959 John immigrated to the States, first to Chicago, then to Pittsburgh and then settling in Boston where he lives now with his lovely wife Gerry, from Tuirin, Conamara.
John gave up playing music for over twenty years shortly after he had emigrated.
He started playing the box again when he wanted to pass it on to his two sons, Seán and Colm and has been at it ever since!
