Singer and bouzouki player Daoirí (pronounced ‘Derry’) Farrell is described by some of the biggest names in Irish folk music, and 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'. Since then he has toured the UK, and played at festivals in Australia, Canada, the UK, Belgium, Denmark and more. Following the release of his next album A Lifetime Of Happiness in February 2019, he was also nominated for three RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards 2019 for 'Best Singer', 'Best Traditional Track', and 'Best Album'.
From March 2020 he attracted up to 85,000 viewers for his run of twenty-five weekly live-streamed concerts every Sunday night at 10pm, which led to him performing on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme and co-hosting the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe.
Daoirí is currently recording a new album with Trevor Hutchinson from Lúnasa/The Waterboys, with the support of the Arts Council of Ireland.
'His powerfully unadorned vocals might be from any era, variously recalling Paul Brady and Andy Irvine…it’s a powerful statement.'
