Two times winner of the BBC Folk Awards, Dublin-born traditional singer and bouzouki player Daoirí (pronounced ‘Derry’) Farrell has been described by some of the biggest names in folk music as one of most important singers to come out of Ireland in recent years.
His rise to fame has been largely through word-of-mouth excitement and, following a live session on the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe, everyone was talking about Daoirí. He has played with a list of musicians which reads like a who’s who of international folk music including: Christy Moore, Gerry O’Connor, Dónal Lunny, Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill.
‘Effortless, instinctive, natural…the real deal.' Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2 Folk Show
‘I’ve been listening to Daoirí’s emerging sounds since first hearing him at the Góilin Singers Club in Dublin when he was a young lad….always a treat to hear him sing.’ Christy Moore
‘Daoirí is one of the most important traditional singers to emerge in the last decade’ Dónal Lunny
