Thread Name: Danu
Subject: RE: Danu
Yes Danu are a very fine young band and many of them are neighbours of mine (One , in fact, is a cousin so I'm probably biased toward them). Young Ciarain (Can't do the accents.. sorry) is a very decent and well mannered lad who must have one of the really great voices of his style, nowadays. The others , including cousin Donnacadh, are all lovely fellows who so obviously enjoy what they do on stage. I believe that they were selected as best new Traditional Band a few years ago when first starting out. The fact is ,BTW, that this country is now awash with excellent young traditional musicians, thanks mainly, I believe, to the effoprts of Cheoltas Cheoilteoiri Eireann in organising its branches all around and arranging music classes , even in the smallest county parish halls etc.
