The Mighty Doonans
The Mighty Doonans have developed from the redoubtable Doonan Family Band who have been part of the English folk scene for many years. They have a deserved reputation for their imaginative and innovative interpretations of traditional songs and ability to introduce other genres of music and dance into their thoroughly entertaining performances
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 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 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.
