The Quietmen performs Irish-American music at Bucks venues


The Quietmen will perform traditional Irish-American music at several area venues in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.

The group, featuring John Danaher of New Hope, along with Dave Haneman, Billy Dominick and Steve Feuerstein, will play at: the Continental Tavern in Yardley, 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, March 14; the New Hope Winery in New Hope, 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 15, in a show open to all ages; and the Carversville Kitchen in Carversville, 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 17. All shows are free of charge.

Danaher is an award-winning singer-songwriter who has toured Europe twice as a headlining act. He has shared the stage with Jimmy Webb, Arlo Guthrie, Bela Fleck, Derek Trucks and Kate Taylor, to name a few.

The documentary film “Embraceable You,” features the song “Give it Time,” earning Danaher “Best Rock Song for a Documentary Film” by the Garden State Film Festival 2010.

Danaher is in his 16th year as producer for the Lambertville New Hope Winter Festival Concert Series. He co-founded “Random Acts of Volunteerism” in New Hope with good friend Joel Roberts.

He is currently working on an album and tour of Europe and the U.S.

Haneman is a sought-after double bass player in the tri-state area and has been playing with Danaher for five years.

Dominick toured with Danaher in Europe in 1994 and continues to add his special brand of violin to The Quietmen.

Feuerstein has played with Danaher since their teen years, continuing with The Quietmen and The Walking Flukes.
