What people have said about Joan's music:

"Joan's performance was well liked by those in attendance. Joan was very accomodating and easy to work with. I hope she is able to participate in our festival in future years and I have no hesitation recommending her for any other event." Jeff Propson, Oshkosh Irish Fest Cultural Activities Chairman
"(Joan McGovern's) music told stories about the hardships in Ireland and its history. Joan would be a wonderful asset for mature and young audiences alike." Renee Hicks, 3K teacher
"I enjoyed your CD very much. You have a very 'distinct' style voice." John Cullinane, Cobh, Ireland
"We love your CD." David and June Mills, Belfast, Northern Ireland
"Your songs are really beautiful. 'River Lee' is a truly unique song." John Harling, Irish Music Adjudicator
"The kids talked about the Irish songs after the performance, and they said they'd like to hear them again." Kristin Rindt, 1st grade teacher
"Even though many of my students were tired, Joan kept their attention with her upbeat songs and the use of her guitar and Bodhran. My students really enjoyed listening to her music and so did I! I would highly recommend her to perform to others-children or adults!" Colleen Schwarz, 4K teacher
"I like 'In Again Finnegan'!" 6th grade boy
"You are a great singer!" 5th grade girl
