Singer and bouzouki player Daoirí (pronounced ‘Derry’) Farrell is described by some of the biggest names in Irish folk music as one of the most important singers to come out of Ireland in recent years. Six months after releasing his second album ‘True Born Irishman’ Daoirí won two prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 for Best Newcomer and Best Traditional Track and performed live at the awards ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Since then he has toured the UK and played at festivals in Australia, Canada, the UK, Belgium, Denmark and more. In February 2018 he toured with the all-star Transatlantic Sessions in major venues across the UK. Daoirí released his third album ‘A Lifetime Of Happiness’, produced by Dónal Lunny, in February 2019.
‘Farrell has created quite a buzz…it’s easy to hear why. His powerfully unadorned vocals might be from any era, variously recalling Paul Brady and Andy Irvine…it’s a powerful statement.’ **** Mojo
