BIO: "From the steps of the U.S. capitol performing with folksinger Peter Seeger, to a concert at the National Cathedral for Pope John Paul II's visit to the United States and a featured performance for former President Ronald Reagan's Inaugural Ball, Daniel O'Flaherty, has shared the folksongs and heartfelt music of his Gaelic roots. In 1984, Daniel, his brother Patrick and friend, Noel Nash, set out for New Orleans to play for the World's Fair. Captivated by the charm and Irish history in Louisiana, they decided to make it their home. O'Flaherty's Irish Channel Pub opened and for over 15 years it was a cultural icon in the French Quarter." Read more...

Why Did You Join the Union?: "There are many reasons I joined the union. My family members in Boston have been very strong in the union
for years, some serving in leadership positions. As an immigrant to this country, to get a decent job and pay, the unions were there for the
common person to protect their rights so they could experience the American dream. That dream took me from working on the top of the
tallest building in the world [at that time], the Sears Tower [Chicago],
to singing to the largest crowd on Solidarity Day on the capitol steps in Washington D.C., to performing for the President's Inaugural Ball. There were other major gigs that could have never happened without the
backing of the Musicians Union. For that I am eternally grateful."
