This new band has developed from the redoubtable “Doonan Family Band who have been part of the English folk scene for many years. DFB have a deserved reputation for their imaginative and innovative interpretations of traditional songs and ability to introduce other genres of music and dance to their thoroughly entertaining performances
The Mighty Doonans philosophy remains the same and the inclusion of the new family members has revitalised the band and created a massive musical powerhouse with incredible vocal performances.
The amazing stage show embraces the best of traditional folk (and step dance) whilst wrapping the songs and tunes in a glorious mix of rock /jazz influences that leavesaudiences spellbound!
