Rising folk stars visiting Dorset

RISING folk stars Janice Burns and Jon Doran are performing at Langton Matravers village hall when they visit Dorset next month to play three dates with rural arts charity Artsreach.

The Anglo-Scottish duo released their debut album No More the Green Hills in October last year. It brings together songs that have survived through the ages and explore man’s relationship with nature, love and loss.
Burns and Doran, whose compelling storytelling comes alive through tight vocal harmonies and sensitive interplay between mandolin, bouzouki and guitar, came together in 2017 after discovering a shared love of traditional music.

They have performed at Sage Gateshead, Cambridge Folk Festival and Edinburgh Tradfest, and their self-titled EP released in 2020 received excellent feedback, including airplay on BBC Radio 2.
Janice Burns and Jon Doran are at Langton Matravers village hall – phone 01929 423834 – on Sunday 12 February at 7.30pm. Further information and tickets are available online at
