About Danny

Accordionist
Armagh
Public liability insurance of £10 million
I'm an Irish folk singer in a band. I play the button accordion to all Ireland standard. I also play bozoucki too with the band

I play the button accordion, bozoucki and sing Irish folk, and traditional Irish music. I played as a duo starting out years ago. This was back in the year 1998. I was still at college at the time. We called the band shogue. In that time I played with Martin Fury. Fimbar fureys son for a night. That was a highlight. I also did 2 tours in the Isle of Mann with Alan Burke from afterhours. I then joined a band called celtish which consisted of 5 of us. We played a lot of gigs around England, Belgium, Holland. We toured with Lunasa, Lan de cubell, Andy Irvine and other bands of that category. This was around 2003. After that I made my way to gran canaria and was involved with a three piece group entertaining in a pub. From there, I moved to Armagh and set up a group called Dánta. This was my self and Terry Conlon Jr. We went to Alaska on a cruise ship called the Grand Princess which I set up through premier entertainment in cork. We did that tour for 4 months. I had an incident on the ship of breaking my finger. I was out of action for a few months. Terry had gone on to do another cruise in the meantime so when I was back in action I made a group called the Trad folk experience. This involves a medley of guitar/singers who I interchange with regularly and we play the London and English circuit since 2016. As a regular occurrence for the last couple of years we meet up with the band and family Clannad every new year and Easter for their celebrations in Leo's tavern in Donegal. We will always play a regular spot in Leo's This year we also played with the band clann mac ruairi. Another brilliant band from Donegal.

Danny and Paul played a blinder and were absolutely amazing from start to finish!! They read the crowd really well, and I would not hesitate to book them again. In fact, they were so great that a guest at the day has asked for their details to consider booking them for her own event! Well done to both of you, ye are very gifted musicians.
