John Doran was a uilliann piper and great musician,who died in 1950.
Jon Doran is young singer and equally as good a musician in his own field.
I like them both,one influenced many talented Irish musicians,the other will keep the interest in English song and music going in the future.
Comparing apples to pears,both taste good,but different.

Can't see there to be any comparison between the two - my binoculars don't cover that distance :-)
Can only find 'a Jon Doran sort of singing Mary and the Soldier

"not sure i would bother to investigate anyone bonzo recommends."
Hi is entitled to his opinion of course - - his violent reaction to a lightly-made disagreement is a different matter altogether
Bozo's tactic is to nause up discussions with outrageous down-putting comments - apparently he doesn't handle others making fall less aggressive comments on his postings to well - some people never do
Personally, I find the clip he has just put up grossly over - accompanied and therefore indecipherable
Had I not just listened to it earlier with a title over it I would have no idea what the song was 'Mary and the Soldier' again, I think
A word on criticism - if performers don't like their performances discussed critically they should stay at home and sing to their ribber ducks in the bath - that goes for their followers
Criticism is a way to improve

I'm grateful for your proving what an unpleasant individual are once again - it really does people like this young singer no good having people like you on his side
I was happy to discuss his singing - his approach interests me because singing like that has created a great deal of problems for the revival
Our songs are narrative, 'Peggy and the Soldier' is a beautiful songs full of interesting things to say
If you drown it in musical soup, as he does, it becomes difficult to follow
He has a fair voice and he's a skillful instrumentalist but he can't decide whether he wants to be a singer or a musician so one cancels out the other
Personally, I believe Martin Carthy and his wannabe copiers have the same problem
There - I've shown you mine - you show me yours - without the abuse or you'll get your own thread closed
There really is no need to be so defensive

but ignoring the question of taste;
some constructive criticism , the guitairist is very competent , however on occasions the vocals are uunclear because of the loudness of the accompaniment, john doran has a pleasant voice, but this is a story song , but yet no attempt is made by the singer to sing it as a story, finally if the singer got the balance between voice and guitar and voice sorted out it would[imo] be better ,the purpose of a story song is to be able to hear all the words clearly above the accpmpaniment.
bonzo, if you put a clip up you cannot just expect everyone to agree with you.
the guitar style is a little rminscent of nic jones, i know bonzo was a fan of nic jones ,nic however always had the guitar lower in volume than the vocals.

jon doran is introduced by the silly compere as completely unique and singing in a completely unique style ,bullshit ,
everyone is unique.. however his style is heavily influenced by nic jones, even to the extent of [in my opinion] playing unecessary guitar instrumentals, which focus on his higly accomplished guitar playing, and which interrupt the flow of the song.
A mistake that many very good guitarists make, so again nothing unique therem, asregards makingand indulgingguitar technique to the detriment of the story of the song and to keeping the instrument as an accompanimemnt, he is follwing in the footsteps of carthy and jones technique should notbe used as an end in itself, it should be thereto demonstrate musicality, if you want to demonstrate musicalcompetence instrumentally play an instrumental ,dont fall in to the trap of letting it interfere with the telling of a story

Just had a very quick watch of this - a snippet only - I saw the Sunday afternoon and early Saturday night of the CCC Festival (Calan- ish were astoundingly good) which introduced me to some excellent new artists and I will be going back to catch up with the rest

On first impression Jon seems to be a very proficient guitarist and a decent singer - sure his voice possibly needs some development - that will come in time - but as Bonzo says the future of folk is safe with such young musicians who were in abundance in that online festival. The Folk on Foot Front Room Festival was also superb and I'm delighted to see they are doing another one on Bank Holiday Weekend with another superb line up

Thanks Bonzo for the "heads up", a very talented young man. Personally I enjoyed listening to him play and sing - all he has to do is keep singing and playing, he doesn't need to emulate anybody. To those who like to compare - With regard to "Mary and the Soldier" listen to Paul Brady and Andy Irvine do it.

People do things differently, of the other versions offered above, liked Nick Dow, Brian Peters would drive me mad [Too much chat and waffle - was bored stupid before he started playing - he even forgot what song he was going to do].

"the future of folk is safe with such young musicians"
I don't wish to rock the boat again, but for me, folk song is too important to let thi pass without comment
Doran is, as you say id siklful at what he does and will become better, but his approach, in turng folk songs into skilfully produced pieces of music have been long tried and have failed dismally on the English scene -
Carthy, Rose and others based their performances on it and made their mark - they produced many copyists
Despite this, the fortunes of English narrative song have declined steadily to the point of disappearing - I hear echoes of Carthy in his approach - music rather than song
The English and Scots song traditions are narrative - that is why they survived as stories and were never accompanied
Over-accompany a folk song and it becomes something else - a pleasant (or not) piece of music)
This may or may not benefit the singer (depending on popular tase) but it does nothing for the tradition and it is certainly not what today's young people are looking for
To suggest it is a self indulgence of our generation rather than an attempt to pass on these songs or future use - the Irish youngsters are taking up the songs as traditional storytelling pieces big-time and the tradition is on a roll, rather than just limping along
My opinion, of course
Jim Carroll

Times have changed, until our standard of living returns to subsistence levels as it was in the early 20th century, people will demand suitable entertainment. The dirges of battles lost, laments on personal hardships etc, have no real meaning to present generations who have only known a life of relative prosperity. Some of these young singers and musicians are entertaining but also manage to convey an understanding of times past through their passion for the music. True they are few a far between, but when they appear they should be appreciated, not condemned.
In saying that, some of the stuff being produced has moved so far from the genre, that it no longer contains any of the necessary emotional content for it to be viewed as "folk music"

Ake
People made songs to express their feelings at how they were treated - poverty, wars, hardship, revolutions - created our folk songs
The Civil rights movement in the US produced amses of songs
If people were happy with their lot we wouldn't have the folk songs we do
You egard them as "dirges" - I spent over half a century with people who regarded them as enjoyable culture and entertainment
If we all took the view you do we would make a huge bonfire of Dickens, Hardy and Shakespeare and turn to the mass froth that we are sold to get our rocks off   
You think youngsters don't want folk song for what it is I suggest a trip to Ireland where the kids have now guaranteed a three generation survival for their musical traditions
Folk song is what it is - if you don't like it - that's your loss
It would be a betrayal to abandon 'The Songs of the People for the ephemeral dross - your choice, of course
If our generation got the pleasure we did from centuries old "dirges" why on earth shouldn't the present lot
At least give them the benefit of intelligence

The thread is about "hope for folk music"......that means in the future.
We are not discussing personal likes or dislikes, at least, I am not!
I am referring to making folk song relevant today and in the future, something which requires an element of entertainment which can appeal to uncommitted listeners.
I am aware that you haven't noticed Jim, but our generation are almost extinct and the present generation have no emotional connection to the dirges which refer back to what seems to them ancient history.

"that means in the future."
For the future of the old songs, just as we could be discussing the future of Shakespeare
I have noticed our generation is nearly gone - I hope to christ our folk music hasn't - I've dedicated a lifetime to help create the possibility that future generations geyt the same pleasure out of the old music that we did and that Irish kids are now doing
If you think they are dirges you haven't been listening - thet are as varied as any other genre of song, poem, play o novel - as a Sunday newspaper used to headline each week "All human life is there"
You obviouly don't like tham - fine - stand aside and gibv others a chance to
Once these threads start nobody decides what "we're discussing" - it goes where it goes
It has nothiing to dioo with prsonal likes or dislikes - folk song is what it is - like it or not
Hopefully it will outlive us for a few centuries -f the modernist don't tear it down to replace it with the monstrosities that pass for art and culture that we are sold nowadays
Art isn't a replaceable commodity, it is something to be added to constantly - it becomes part of a people's history
