Singer and bouzouki player Daoirí (pronounced ‘Derry’) Farrell is described by some of the biggest names in Irish folk music as one of most important singers to come out of Ireland in recent years.
Farrell holds two prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and performed live at the awards ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall, as well as receiving three nominations in the RTÉ Folk Awards. He has toured and played festivals in the UK, Australia, Germany, Ireland, Canada, Belgium, Denmark, Spain and more. He has also toured with the all-star Transatlantic Sessions to major venues across the UK. Daoirí released his latest album A Lifetime Of Happiness, produced by the legendary Dónal Lunny, in 2019 and is currently working on new material with producer Trevor Hutchinson (The Waterboys).
“His powerfully unadorned vocals might be from any era, variously recalling Paul Brady and Andy Irvine…it’s a powerful statement.“ – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Mojo
