“North Georgia Fiddler stringing together loyal fan following”

Danny Ray Cole drawing attention

By Tess Vanattia - Staff Writer

The Forsyth Herald – 08/01

North Georgia recording artist Danny Ray Cole was recently invited by KICKS 101.5 FM to be a part of country music week at Six Flags over Georgia.

      Cole, who lives on Lake Lanier, and his flaming Georgia fiddle were the opening act for Nashville recording artist Blake Shelton.  Shelton has the current number one hit on country radio, "Austin."

      Cole performed songs from his new album, "Places You Go", an instrumental recording that showcases his diverse talents.  

"The fiddle is my forte," said Cole who actually plays several instruments:  fiddle/violin, harmonica, mandolin, mandocaster, rhythm guitar, slide guitar and banjo. He is his own accompaniment both live and in his recordings.

      "Danny Ray Cole is an amazing talent on fiddle," said KICKS 101.5 officials.  The invitation to Cole was spurred by his abilities and by the station's desire to support local musicians.

      "It was great bringing my music to Six Flags," said Cole.  "People are always amazed at the many sounds that I can make with my fiddle without any special devices. I especially enjoyed that so many young people were drawn to the stage while I was playing... I had 'em screaming."

      Cole's furiously fast fiddling songs, indeed, left crowds screaming for more.  From bluegrass and Cajun to Celtic, Cole cranked out one tune after another for enthusiastic fans, all-the-while wearing in line states.  And while his bow cooled down from what is easily considered some serious sawing,  Cole told humorous stories about how each song came to be.

       Cole's grandfather fostered his love of music and encouraged him to play the fiddle.  "Places You Go" is Cole's third album and he is constantly working on new material.

      He has many musical credits to his name, has won numerous contests and even toured with the late great Bill Monroe.

      Cole feels however, that  home is where the heart is and since he draws so much inspiration for his music from the beautiful north Georgia area, he has decided to remain a local/regional entertainer.
