Joan Doan is an old friend of mine, and brother in Christ. He gave me his CD ‘Eire – Isle of the Saints’ a while ago and this last week, while recovering from Dental work, I probably listened to it a dozen times. John wrote the songs while he and his wife, Deirdra, were in Ireland. They love the Lord, and He inspired John to write such healing, enchanting music in a Celtic Style.
The notes in the jacket also say that John was also inspired by St. Patrick’s writings. John’s CD won the NAV award – “Best Celtic Album of the Year.” John has been on the ‘700 Club’ and other TV
John Doan plays and writes incredible music on the Harp Guitar. It’s a bit hard to see in this picture, but the guitar has extra strings both above and below the regular guitar strings. John’s music is enhanced with other gifted musicians playing the violin, bagpipes, etc.
