Black 47 Farewell Tour
Black 47 Farewell Tour
They played more gigs at Shea Stadium than The Beatles, shut down the city of Hoboken, appeared multiple times on Leno, Letterman & O’Brien, starred in a movie with their fans Matt Dillon and Danny Glover, helped spring the Guilford Four and the Birmingham Six from British prisons, saved an Irish immigrant church from the wrecking ball.

Anything else? Oh yeah, their CD IRAQ was the most popular with troops serving in Iraq, their song The Big Fellah was featured for 3 minutes on Sons of Anarchy, they’ve played over 2500 gigs from pubs to stadiums and released 14 CDs, their songs are used in hundreds of high school and college history and political science courses, and they intend disbanding on Nov. 8th, exactly 25 years after their first gig in The Bronx. Then again, Black 47 has always done it their way.

Led by Irish author, playwright, and SiriusXM radio host, Larry Kirwan, Black 47 play a uniquely Irish form of rock 'n' roll that touches on many social and political issues, and yet is never less than entertaining and riveting. Black 47 earned their chops playing four sets a night in New York pubs. They gained national attention for their first indie record before The Cars' Ric Ocasek produced their second album, Fire Of Freedom which brought them mainstream attention with MTV favorites, Funky Ceili and Maria’s Wedding.

Through years of relentless touring the band’s signature eclectic sound, socially conscious lyrics and exciting concerts paved the way for other Irish influenced bands such as Flogging Molly and The Dropkick Murphys. A band of band leaders, Black 47 includes, Geoff Blythe (saxophones), Thomas Hamlin (drums), Fred Parcells (trombone/whistle), Joseph Mulvanerty (uilleann pipes/flutes/bodhran) & Joseph “Bearclaw” Burcaw (bass).

This legendary Irish rock band has left a lasting legacy and they intend going out with a bang. Their final CD, Last Call, released in January 2014 and Black 47 will tour constantly until their final date in New York City.

Danny has worked with Grammy-nominated record producer Warren Huart to create his debut album, “Off The Grid.”

Huart (The Fray, James Blunt, Matisyahu) has managed to pull at the roots of Burns’ Irish blood, cultivating his passion, and showcasing Burns’ narrative songwriting, unique vocals and soulful delivery.

Danny has been touring since the age of 17, learning his craft on the road, playing and living in New York, Nashville, New Orleans and Chicago, and has extensive experience on the European & Scandinavian circuits. Burns’ influences not only come from his traditional upbringing, but also from legendary singer/songwriters such as John Martyn, Van Morrison, Richard Thompson, and Christy Moore.

Burns took part in the historic songwriters’ night at the Bluebird Cafe Nashville TN, home to such songwriters as Townes Van Zant, Steve Earle, and Guy Clark. Danny also featured in the critically acclaimed documentary about Irish legend, Shane MacGowan, “The Fairytale of New York,”
