In 1997, Johnny formed the traditional Irish band Gallowglass, with brothers Mike and Kevin Meehan. Over time, the ranks of Gallowglass shifted and were joined, periodically, by numerous guest musicians on a variety of instruments, including Texan native Dan Lowery on Irish flute.

In one form or another, Gallowglass performed in a wide variety of forums that ranged from large theaters, to traditional folk festivals, to backyard gatherings. Primarily based around traditional Irish music, the band’s repertoire commonly combined outside elements such as Bluegrass, American Folk, and original compositions to their set-list. No longer a formal band, Johnny, and the members of Gallowglass have moved onto other projects, but still play together for special events.

Today, and for the past 7 years, Johnny still runs one of the most popular traditional Irish sessions in NYC. Look for Johnny deeply embedded in the music at O'Neill's Pub on 3rd Ave, every Sunday night, supplying the voice, rhythm guitar, mandolin & tin whistle to the mix, with a different cast of musicians each week. Musicians from all over the country have come in to listen, or sit in, on this multi-talented group of players. Recently, Irish TV visited O'Neill's and filmed some of the session there.

Johnny also plays at various pubs around NY as an invited guest at other sessions, as well as museums, libraries, schools, festivals and private events.
