John Reynolds has passed away.

A legend in the Irish live music scene. He brought us many memories, and is the man responsible for bringing Leonard to Ireland, most notably Kilmainham in 2008, and Lissadell 2010. He promoted all of Leonard's Irish concerts over the 2008-2013 concert.
I spoke with him only once, after one of Sharon's solo gigs here in 2014/2015. Happy I could personally thank him. Last time I saw him was at the Nick Cave concert in June.
Gone to soon, rest easy John. Thank you for the memories.

Very sad news. I too only spoke with him once, when he helped us obtain tickets for a high profile show (not Leonard!) after I sent him an e-mail with a simple enquiry. Lovely man and a great loss to the Irish music industry.

Editing: I just remembered. I also met him at Bagel etc in Montreal last November. He was with Rob Hallett and there was lots of good natured banter between Howard and their group which I became part of. Happy memories.

Fantastic man - so generous and driven to create the best possible experience for the concert goer.

A huge loss.
