Daoirí is one of the most important traditional singers to emerge in the last decade - Dónal Lunny
Winner of two BBC Folk Awards, Dublin-born traditional singer and bouzouki player Daoirí Farrell has quickly become one of the most important singers in Irish folk music. With his powerful and distinctive voice it is no wonder he has been championed by the likes of Christy Moore and Donal Lunny.
Six months after releasing the album ‘True Born Irishman’ Daoirí had picked up two prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2017 for Best Newcomer and Best Traditional Track, and also performed live at the awards ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall.He has since toured Australia, Canada, Denmark and Belgium, featured at the likes of Festival Interceltique Lorient, Shetland Folk Festival and Cambridge Folk Festival, and toured alongside the Transatlantic Sessions project. We are delighted to welcome him to Limavady on a rare tour in Northern Ireland.
