Sir John Andrew Stevenson (1761-1833) was an Irish composer of classical music. He is best known for his publications of Irish Melodies with poet Thomas Moore. He received the degree of Doctor of Music at the University of Dublin in 1791, and he was knighted in 1803 by Philip Yorke, Earl of Hardwicke, lord lieutenant of Ireland. He was then appointed first organist and musical director at the newly erected Chapel Royal of Dublin Castle in 1814.
