“Jonathan is an Irish tenor in the classic sense, but with a unique clarity, similar to John Denver.”
— Bill Grady, of KMBZ, 2017 Kansas City Irish Festival
Jonathan Ramsey combines the playful Irish raconteur with the introspective folk singer. Jonathan takes on unrequited love, comeuppance and underdogs, shipwrecks, general mayhem, and marital bliss —or lack thereof- with a bit of ironic humor and a dash of sensitivity. A one-man band —emphasis on “band”- he at once sings, plays a counter-melody and rhythm on the guitar, while stomping out a close drum and tambourine beat on a large wooden box.
If you’re ready for some driving songs of love, hate, mayhem, and the occasional murder or shipwreck, you need to check out Jonathan Ramsey.
