Longstanding membership of the annual Transatlantic Sessions house band and of Mark Knopfler's band are among the many highlights of John’s career.

An unmissable festival highlight.

John is also marking the occasion with the release of a Best Of album, including four new tracks, and a book - John McCusker: The Collection - gathering 100 of his compositions.
