John Carroll is an Irish musician living in Hangzhou China. He arrived here by boat from Korea, with a Nokia phone, his backpack and a guitar. John candidly shares his story in how he created albums and toured around China magnetising audiences just like that of a Seanchai. He skilfully weaves aspects of Chinese language and culture into his songs. So exciting to make this podcast!
