Balladeer Danny Doyle has been struggling with medical issues that do not allow him to sing or play guitar. Because of this, he has been unable to work and has canceled all is 2007 and 2008 bookings.

Seamus Kennedy, Christy Hughes, Saint Brendan’s Fair Isle, Liam Maguire, Daniel Flaherty and many more will take the stage in support of Danny, one of Ireland’s premier balladeers, who scored great hits with The Dutchman, Waltzing Matilda, Whiskey on a Sunday, Step it Out Mary, Leaving Nancy.

Danny has been a fixture at festivals across the United States and Ireland, Australia and Europe, including Ohio’s own Cleveland Irish Cultural Festival, where he has played more than a dozen times.
