Danny was most disconcerting to play with, as besides playing tunes with a highly variable number of repeats of the parts, he had a way of skipping bars apparently at random. This of course threw the rest of the session out of synch, at which he would glower fiercely at any neighbouring fiddlers as they struggled to get back in time. We lesser breeds of instrumentalists were immune from his wrath however. This foible didn't stop his sessions (he was very possessive of them too) from being packed to bursting.
