DKOS Launch New Website on 15th Feb 2021
Welcome to the new DKOS Website !
Launched on my big Birthday on 15th Feb 2021!
The purpose of the site is to give you year round access to all DKOS Danny’s – all 140 of them! For their links / bio / gigs (virtual or otherwise) / new releases and in general what are they doing!
Also to link all the stunning artists who have graced the stage in the 21 years DKOS has been running.
This is a work in progress – as it takes time to collate them all 1,890 acts that have generously graced the DKOS stage with there talent at Celtic Connections and where ever a DKOS stage has taken place.
This site is for the DKOS artists to get even more of their information out there – from a dedicated DKOS website
I want to thank Celtic Music Radio for Broadcasting the DKOS since coming on board on 2008 and for the continued support of fellow Directors Alex Jenkins and Gordon Hotchkiss, also the presenters who give air time to all the fantastic musicians that come through the DKOS. Also to the fantastic backstage team of Sandy Semenoff , Iain Oliphant and Andy Hood for making sure the programme goes out!
My thanks of course goes to Colin Hynd at Celtic Connections for starting all this as a tribute to Danny when he sadly passed away in 1998, and the continues support and encouragement of all The Celtic Connections team – especial Jade, Lesley and Donald and Hannah and her Media gurus, staunch supporters of DKOS and it’s artists
The Biggest shout out to my old parther in crime – Gibb Todd who started this with me back in 1999 till he moved to sunnier climes – but still followos all the Dannys and has had the pleasure of introducing some of them on stage at the Wickham Festival!
I also include the stalwart professionalism of Iain Copeland from Skye Record for the building of this website AND putting up with me when I change my mind – AGAIN!
So keep watching –much , much more information to come in the coming months.
So if you have old photographs or stories from DKOS – get them to me and we will get a ‘DKOS Fans Page’ And we will get those memories up there! Watch this space for a way to submit your photos!
So to start you off! Here is a list of all 140 Dannys! Fuller version with artists names is being worked on as I speak!
Biggest thanks to YOU, the audience – who stand for hours to get into the Exibition Hall , to CC Friends / Rovers who are faithfull attendees! Who make the DKOS the Folk Family! To all those who listen in throughout the world on CMR.
