Expect tight vocal harmonies and sensitive interplay between these rising folk stars
Janice Burns & Jon Doran are an Anglo-Scottish duo who came together after discovering a shared love of traditional music. They find their songs in archives that span the depths of our history – songs that tell vivid stories about the nature of life and our place in the world.

Their compelling storytelling comes alive through tight vocal harmonies and sensitive interplay between mandolin, bouzouki, and guitar. Their arrangements have a spellbinding presence and an understated energy that transports their songs from the pages of books and manuscripts into the imagination of the listener.

Since meeting in 2017 the duo has performed at the likes of Sage Gateshead, Cambridge Folk Festival, and Edinburgh Tradfest. Their latest album, 'No More the Green Hills', was released in October 2022 and brings together folk songs that have survived through the ages, shapeshifting and adapting to changing environments as they’ve passed from singer to singer. Exploring man’s relationship with nature, love and loss, expect an evening of songs with an enduring resonance.

"Crystal clear voices, great musicianship, and obviously a deep love of the tradition"

Mike Harding
