Danny Couper

Danny Couper has been involved in the folk revival since the early days of the Aberdeen Folk Club when the great old timers such as Jeannie Robertson, Auld Davie Stewart (the Galoot) and Jimmy McBeath were as likely to be in the Folk Club as Martin Carthy, Cyril Tawney or Hamish Imlach. Danny went into the fish trade in his twenties and over the years has built up one of the largest fish wholesale businesses in Scotland. Shown here while being accompanied on MacPherson's Lament by Carol Anderson on fiddle - learned from the singing of Auld Davie Stewart.
