The Mighty Doonans have a deserved reputation for their imaginative and innovative interpretations of traditional and contemporary songs. With brass, drums, keyboards, electric guitars and amazing vocals, they have the ability to blend different genres of music and dance (and the occasional joke) into their act. This leads to thoroughly entertaining performances that delight audiences across the ‘folk world’.
The original ‘Doonan Family Band’ regulars; Mick & Kevin Doonan, Phil Murray & Stu Luckley, are joined by various family members, Rosie & Frances Doonan (Mick’s daughters), Jamie Luckley (Stu’s son) a great old friend Ian (Walter) Fairbairn and occasionally joined by Ben Murray (Phil’s son) which all constitute ‘The Mighty Doonans’.
The original ‘Doonan Family Band ‘ have been part of the British folk scene for over 40 years. John Doonan , father of Mick and Kevin, was the godfather of Irish music, a World Champion Piccolo Player.
The Mighty Doonans continue to deliver their traditions and influences along with powerhouse arrangements and sensitive interpretations of a wide variety of material, while retaining their renowned rapport and relationship with all audiences.
Ever since seeing them whip the main stage audience into a frenzy at Cambridge Folk Festival, we’ve been wanting to have them as part of the Folk in the Barn programme. When you see them, you’ll understand why!
