"Legend" is not a title John McDermott would readily embrace, but his accomplishments have become legendary in recording industry lore.
John’s first album, Danny Boy, was originally recorded as a very private and personal 50th anniversary tribute for his parents.
This success, in addition to a fast growing North American fan base, won through a tireless touring schedule, led to his participation in the PBS phenomenon, The Irish Tenors. John’s presence helped generate a US gold record, three US tours, and a high-profile media schedule, which included appearances on ‘Good Morning America’ and ‘The Today Show.’ In November 2001, John taped "John McDermott - A Time to Remember" at the Living Arts Centre outside Toronto. This, his first solo television special, began airing in March 2002 on PBS affiliates across North America.
He has earned three Canadian platinum records, five Juno nominations , a solid international touring schedule, and many more albums including Songs of the Isles Ireland and Songs of the Isles Scotland, Images of Christmas with John McDermott and Friends, Great Is Thy Faithfulness, Stories of Love, Just Plain Folk and On A Whim
