Daoirí Farrell


Cecil Sharp House, London

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 twice to the UK, and played at festivals in Australia, Canada, the UK, Belgium, Denmark and more. In February 2018 he toured with the all-star Transatlantic Sessions in venues of up to 2,000 capacity and continues to be in demand across the world.

His new ‘A Lifetime of Happiness’ has been described as ‘a wonderful album that delights on every level’ by, who made Daoirí their Artist of the Month for February.
