“…his playing is an exquisite union of the ancient and the contemporary, the austere and the sensual.”
The Washington Post (May 25, 2006)

John Doan’s “Departures” is described as one of the finest contemporary instrumental music compositions, a thoughtful, often sublime lyricism and subtle classical music portrayal of Celtic music on the harp guitar “definitely worth going out of your way to find.”

“In tune with the past, a Renaissance man among musicians.”
Victoria Magazine (May 25, 2006)
