A former electrician who decided to change profession after seeing Christy Moore perform on Irish TV, Dublin-born traditional singer and bouzouki player Daoirí (pronounced ‘Derry’) Farrell is being described by some of the biggest names in Irish folk music as the most important singer to come out of Ireland in recent years, and he has delivered the album to prove them right.

Daoirí cut his teeth singing in Dublin’s famous Góilin Singers Club and following his studies he quickly found work accompanying Christy himself as well as a who’s who of folk music including Dónal Lunny, Dennis Cahill, Danú and Julie Fowlis. In 2013 he won the All Ireland Champion Singer award followed in 2015 by the prestigious Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections in Glasgow.

In 2017, six months after releasing his internationally acclaimed second LP ‘True Born Irishman’, Daoirí won two prestigious BBC Folk Awards for Best Newcomer and Best Traditional Track, performing live at the ceremony in London’s Royal Albert Hall. The course is set for Daoirí to become one of Irish music’s brightest stars.
