Oh You Are A Mucky Kid – Danny Doyle
Leaving school at fourteen years of age, he started doing odd jobs, including general factotum in Dublin’s Pike Theatre, where he began to pick up, from the travelling players, songs from the Irish countryside.
During the 1960s and 1970s, he was one of the top Irish singers, regularly featuring in the Irish charts and scoring three No.1 singles (notably displacing ABBA’s “Take a Chance on Me” after just one week at the top). He has recorded 25 albums, including Emigrant Eyes, a collaboration with his sister Geraldine, a comedienne popular in Australia. He is probably best known for his 1967 Number One hit “Whiskey on a Sunday”.
He has appeared in concert throughout the world, including Carnegie Hall, New York and the Albert Hall, London.
Although retired from performing, he joined numerous musicians on stage at the end of the 2010 Milwaukee Irish Fest, in what is known as the Scattering.
