Dublin-born traditional singer and bouzouki player Daoirí Farrell worked as an electrician, before downing tools after seeing Christy Moore perform. The trade’s loss has been our gain, with Daoirí quickly becoming one of the biggest names in Irish folk music and one of most important singers to come out of Ireland in recent years.

Six months after releasing the album ‘True Born Irishman’ Daoirí had picked up two prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2017 for Best Newcomer and Best Traditional Track, and also performed live at the awards ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

He has since toured Australia, Canada, Denmark and Belgium, featured at the likes of Festival Interceltique Lorient, Shetland Folk Festival and Cambridge Folk Festival, and toured alongside the Transatlantic Sessions project.

He is a musician championed by the likes of Christy Moore and Donal Lunny, and we are delighted to welcome Daoirí as he embarks on a five-date tour of the north!

“…one of the most significant Irish releases of recent years.” Songlines

“True Born Irishman is definitely one of the year’s outstanding Irish music albums; you owe it to yourself to hear it” Fatea

“Daoirí is one of the most important traditional singers to emerge in the last decade” Dónal Lunny

“Effortless, instinctive, natural…the real deal.” Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
