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.

Six months after releasing the 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.

Daoirí’s fourth album, ‘The Wedding Above In Glencree’, recorded with Trevor Hutchinson (Lúnasa/The Waterboys), was released in February 2023 providing the opportunity to hear this new material live.

'His powerfully unadorned vocals might be from any era, variously recalling Paul Brady and Andy Irvine…it's a powerful statement.' - ★★★★ - Mojo
