Thread Name: Ducie Arms, Manchester
Subject: Ducie Arms, Manchester
I've learnt Howard Bonds' song Danny's Fiddle and realised I know next to nothing about Danny except he worked on building sites and was a superb fiddle player who kept his fiddle in the Ducie Arms. I was really too young to frequent the pub and only heard him once or twice although he has a reputation across Manchester as a great fiddle player. Can anyone fill in any details about Danny, his fiddle and the Ducie Arms at the time.
