Although they were raised 100 miles apart, (Kathy in the city of St. Paul, MN and Tim on a dairy farm in rural Cadott, WI), they grew up listening to the same music. Being inspired by the songs of Peter, Paul, & Mary, Simon and Garfunkel, and The Everly Brothers, it was very natural for them to sing the same type of harmonies when they began performing together in college. As the duo grew musically, they also grew romantically, and were married shortly after graduation from UW-River Falls in 1981. After singing as a duo for 15 years, their children, Casey and Joe, began making an appearance with them on occasion. Over the years they have become a regular part of the group and the duo has become a quartet. Casey adds mandolin and guitar, while Joe divides his talents among the guitar, bass, harmonica, and piano. Together, the two of them have been performing to their own audience as the duo, "Casey and Joe." 

With Tim’s taxidermy business, the time spent on the family farm, Kathy, Casey, and her husband, Daniel's full time teaching jobs, and Joe now living in the Twin Cities, they haven’t been able to perform together as often as they once did.  However, Danville continues to perform in every possible combination of members.  Whether playing at concert halls, coffeehouses, churches, or music festivals, they move audiences from tears to laughter with songs and stories about love, family, children, memories, and relationships. They call their style of music “acoustic contemporary folk” and have recorded six CDs: Love Like A RiverAge to Age and Heart to Heart, a Christmas album entitled A Danielson Family Christmas, Casey and Joe’s two CDs, Casey and Joe Live and Cornerstones and Commontime, and Tim’s solo album A Place I Know.

Danville has enjoyed playing for audiences, young and old, large and small for over 30 years, and will continue to do so as long as folks continue to listen.
