Denis Ryan    

In 1983, the three members of Ryan's Fancy decided to pursue separate careers. Denis, who makes his home in Halifax, Nova Scotia, has since been working in the investment business. He is involved with numerous community projects including serving as the national chairman of the fundraising committee of the D'Arcy McGee Chair of Irish Studies at St. Mary's University. In 1994 he received an Honarary degree, Doctor of Letters, from St. Mary's University in Halifax. Denis is also the founder of NovaScotian Crystal, located on the Halifax waterfront. It is the only mouth-blown, hand-cut crystal company in North America.

However, his interest in music has never waned. He was the host of CBC's nationally televised show "Up on the Roof". He has appeared at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax with Symphony Nova Scotia and hosted the spectacular Symphony Explosion at the Halifax Metro Centre in 1996, which raised over $150,000 for the Symphony. Denis continues to emcee many charitable and other events. He has also released two solo albums titled "Mist Covered Mountains" and "Denis Ryan & Friends: Here and There".
