Danny Who? Four Decades in Irish Music is the story of Tom Dahill, born in St Paul, Minnesota smack dab in the middle of the twentieth century, whose vivid account of the dangers and delights of life as a travelling musician makes his story read like a novel. Beginning with the heady days of the early folk and rock and roll scene, the story follows Tom from east coast to west coast, across to Ireland, down to Louisiana and up to the backwoods of northern Wisconsin. Along the way he encounters people from all walks of life, learning a little from each of them. The book is also a tribute to the Old Ones who kept the music alive and passed it on to a young man in need of direction. A rich and exuberant book reminiscent of Irish storytellers down the ages. A great story and reference for Irish musicians and lovers of Irish music. Anyone who likes Irish music will love this book, but so too will many others who came of age during the last half of the past century.
