Dear Friends:


I hope you are having a wonderful summer with family and friends! I am in Ireland right now on my Heritage Tour, having a wonderful time sharing some of the beauty and rich heritage of the area. There are so many exciting things happening the rest of this year and next though that I wanted to take a moment out to update all of you on some of my upcoming concerts and also the amazing trips I have planned for the rest of this year and next.


I hope to see you at one of the first concerts that I will be doing when I return from Ireland!     


God Bless, Danny
