This is what we came to hear.”
—Philladelphia Folk Festival
Danaher & Cloud believe that in every life there is a story, and in every story there is a song. Their roots and inspiration are rich and diverse, from Irish master storyteller Eamon Kelly to country music's legendary Marty Stuart. Original songs from their award-winning recordings intermingle with an eclectic repertoire of Americana music and just plain funny stories of everyman and everywoman, played with mastery on a variety of instruments and sung brilliantly from the heart.
Over the years they have entertained at festivals and concert stages, including the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Appel Farm Arts and Music Center, Kennett Flash, The Kimmel Center, and the Colony Café in Woodstock, New York.
Danaher and Cloud have opened for top names on the Americana and folk music circuit, including The Chieftains, Maria Muldaur, and Eric Andersen.
They have honed their craft and found their niche in Americana music, which is inspired by America’s ever-changing musical landscape. Their diverse backgrounds combine to produce programs and recordings that are difficult to describe but nonetheless remarkable. Sometimes it’s a song, sometimes it’s a story, but it’s always a good time.
The sequence is brilliant and powerful. Images from the Great Depression, in black and white, alternate with color images of the here and now. The result is a statement of greater eloquence than even words and music can achieve. The song is a worthy accompaniment.”
