Jon Doran and The Northern Assembly are a ground-breaking new collaboration that seeks to capture the excitement within traditional song, and shine new light on old stories from the British Isles. With virtuosic instrumentalists, Heather Ferrier (Balter) and Jordan Aikin (Pons Aelius), the trio create dynamic songs that combine exhilarating contemporary arrangements with the much-loved traditional performance style of Jon Doran (BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award Finalist 2019).
Absolutely superb, what a singer, what a violin player and what a bouzouki player. I sat and watched Jon’s performance and thought ‘I wish I was that good’. -Greg Russell
