Danny Burns (1946-2001)


Founded in 2002, the Wolf and Hound was named in honour of the late Danny Burns, the quintessential Irish musician. Danny was a member of the very popular Belfast band called “The Wolfhound”, hence the adapted pub name “The Wolf and Hound”.

Danny moved to Vancouver in the 1970’s and was very active in the Irish community. His talent and charisma was a magnet for the Irish diaspora. The Danny Burns Ballad band which he so fondly created became the house band at the iconic “Culpepper’s” on West Broadway. It was he who made Culpepper’s the Irish music place in 1990’s.

Sadly Danny passed away a few months before the Wolf and Hound opened. The Wolf and Hound is a great tribute to the proud Irishman and great entertainer, Danny Burns.


Sláinte , Danny!
