Janice Burns & Jon Doran are an Anglo-Scottish duo with 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. From the ethereal landscapes of ancient ballads to the urban rhythms of work songs, they bring each story to life through their stunning vocal harmonies, accompanied by mandolin, tenor guitar and bouzouki.
Their arrangements have a spellbinding presence and an understated energy that transports their songs into the imagination of the listener, an exquisite musical exploration of man’s relationship with nature, love and loss.
“Really well crafted, intimate, beautifully understated.” – Karine Polwart, artist
