Daoiri Farrell at The Water Rats


Two times BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 for: Best Newcomer and Best Traditional Track Dublin-born traditional singer and bouzouki player Daoiri (pronounced 'Derry') Farrell is being 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. Daoiri had cut his teeth as a singer in Dublin's famous Goilin Singers Club, where he was spotted early on by Christy Moore, and at other sessions across the city, many of which he still visits. Following his studies he quickly found work accompanying artists including Christy Moore himself, as well as a list of names that sounds like a who's who of Irish folk music: Donal Lunny, Martin Hayes, Dennis Cahill, Alan Doherty, Danu, Dervish, Julie Fowlis, Arty McGlynn, The John Carty Big Band, Kila, Sean Keane, Gerry O'Connor (Banjo), Gerry O'Connor (Fiddle), Lynched and more.
