A fisherman by trade, Denis Nash was born on 29 September 1928 and has lived all of his life in Branch. His father, Bernard Joseph Nash, was the source of many of Denis’s songs. He also picked up some of his repertoire from other people around Branch. Most of Denis’s performances happened in informal situations like house parties. As of 2018, he and his wife, Annie, have been married for 55 years.
