John Doonan & Dave Bulmer - De Zon folkclub
Dranouter, Belgium (March 25th, 1977)





















bonjour,
la suite des concerts "in De Zon", comme promis John Doonan au piccolo accompagné de l'accordéoniste Dave Bulmer le 25/3/1977. La qualité est légèrement meilleure, j'ai supprimé les commentaires et présentations (à la disposition des fans de John sur demande).
J'ai trouvé sur le net cette présentation de JD :
"John Doonan, All-Ireland and World Piccolo Champion, is often described as the Godfather of Irish Music and, in celebrating fifty years of travelling and playing, it has was said that he has been on the road longer than the white lines. in the year of his 80th birthday John died on Friday 8th March 2002. Along with his two sons, Mick (piccolo, flute, whistles, uilleann pipes and vocals) and Kevin (fiddle and vocals), the Doonan Family have travelled from their base in Hebburn, Tyne and Wear to play all over the world. Affectionately known in the north east as the 'Whistling Welder', he has had an unquestionable and significant influence on music and musicians in, and far beyond, the North of England. His grandfather also called John, played fiddle and accordion and his father George was a fiddler. John played by ear and never learned to read music. His flair saw him win an All - Ireland championship competition in Co. Roscommon playing the piccolo in 1968 and come second in the music section of the Welsh International Eisteddfod in the 1970s."

John Doonan n'a enregistré que deux LP, "Flute for the feis" en 1972 et "At the feis" en 1977 dont je ne possède qu'une copie sur cassette, si quelqu'un a les LP il peut en faire profiter les autres.


Pour info à ce jour 78 amateurs ont téléchargé le concert de John Kirkpatrick. Malgré la basse qualité de l'enregistrement cela semble intéresser quelques personnes, merci pour vos encouragements même non exprimés ;-)

It's only his real name that must not be spoken. It's quite acceptable to call him hundreds of other things. One begins with a 'C' I seem to remember.

the "man who's name must not be spoken" !! ?
Sa (mauvaise) réputation n'a pas franchi la frontière française, du moins à ma connaissance ;-)
Mais nous avons aussi le même genre de personnage non fréquentable, c'est une calamité universelle :-(
