Daoirí Farrell


Presented by Moving on Music
Within six months of releasing his album True Born Irishman, Daoirí Farrell had won two BBC Folk Awards. Now secured as a significant singer in Irish folk music, the Dublin-born traditional singer and bouzouki player has 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. 

According to Donal Lunny: “Daoirí is one of the most important traditional singers to emerge in the last decade,” and with BBC Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe describing him as “Effortless, instinctive, natural…the real deal,” you really don’t want to miss this.
