About Danny Doyle
Once one of Ireland's best balladeers, Danny Doyle has continued to celebrate the music of the Emerald Isles since relocating to the United States in 1983. Called "the greatest Irish ballad of all time," by multi-instrumentalist/producer Donal Lunny, he scored with such hits as "A Daisy A Day", "Streets Of London", "Lizzie Lindsay", "Whiskey On A Sunday" and "The Rare Ould Times", in the 1960s. Continuing to build on the aural tradition of Dublin's street-singers, he collaborated with his sister, Geraldine, on an album, Emigrant Eyes", in 1993, that told the musical tale of the Irish emigration to North America in the 1840s.
Doyle worked extensively with pianist/producer Bill Whelan, best known as composer of Riverdance, exposing the former pop-rock arranger to Celtic music. He's also continue to occasionally perform with his sister, Geraldine, a resident of Australia since 1981, who has built her own career as one of Australia's top comedians.
