About Danny

 

I have been a Folk singer for over thirty years, mainly working with a band called Fiddlers Green, and for most of that time I sang and played Guitar with the band. Travelling and playing in mainland Europe, the USA, England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, and if the truth were known there probably isnít a road in Ireland I havenít travelled. 

It has been my privilege to have learned and sung so many wonderful songs that have been written over many decades and centuries in this very talented Island of Ireland. Itís a great feeling to write and record your own songs, and for me life is a brand new challenge to work as a solo singer with the songs I have written and recorded and also all the other songs I have recorded, Itís important to have a very positive feeling about life. With two Albums now being re-released this year 2006 on my own Label Gnome records and also an abundance of songs to sing live on stage, it will always be my pleasure to entertain in whatever format. Whatever age group, or whether it be Music pubs, Theatres or schools, there is always a song to be sung for everyone. To be given the talent to sing for any age group is a great privilege, and when children and adults respond to the songs that I sing, there is no greater pleasure.

A very good friend of Irish TV and radio Dereck Davis once said of me that I had developed my own inimitable style of singing Ballads and also to be blessed with a distinctive and tuneful voice, those were his words. Also it was a great privilege in 2002 to have been invited by the President of Ireland Mary Mc Alleese to Arras an Uachtarain as a tribute to Irish entertainers and to be introduced to both herself and her husband Martin. In 2005 I had the great pleasure of meeting Peter Yarrow of ( Peter, Paul and Mary ) in New York in his Apartment in the Autumn of that year, where we dined, wined and sang till the early hours of the morning with family and friends. Great memories to be able to cherish for the rest of my life, and hopefully I will create many more memories for the future. Browse over my website and have a listen to some of the songs I have recorded and maybe you might want to purchase a copy of my albums or maybe just make contact with me, whichever Iím always glad of your company.
