The Danny Kyle Corner

Stories from all over the world and Paisley

Danny Kyle; drawing by Anke DammannDanny Kyle was one of the greatest and funniest Scotsmen we have ever met; these pages are to remember and remind, to laugh and talk about Danny.

Danny was one of the best known and best loved persons on the Scottish folk music scene. He was involved in virtually every good folk festival in Scotland; people chose their festivals just by his name. His popular Open Stages are legendary. He had a great sense of humour, he knew how to get on with people, he always wore the ugliest ties and a bonnie bonnet. On Sunday, 5th July 1998, Danny Kyle has passed away. He leaves a gap in the Folk Music World that will hardly ever be filled. Hopefully a bit of his spirit will live on in the international folk music scene.

Danny's great sense of humour and his character will never be forgotten by his many friends around the world. Anybody who has ever met Danny has his own great Danny Kyle story. Please help this site develop by contributing your Danny-Kyle-Story! Contact us!
