Daoirí Farrell is a must-see show

Daoirí Farrell onstage this Saturday March4 at Dolans.

Daoirí Farrell, a renowned singer and bouzouki player, has been praised by some of the most influential names in Irish folk music as one of the most significant singers to emerge from Ireland in recent years. He was formerly an electrician but decided to pursue music after seeing Christy Moore perform. He has performed extensively in countries such as Australia, Canada, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, The Czech Republic, USA, Portugal, and many more.
Having originated from Dublin’s famous club, An Góilin Traditional Singers, Daoirí Farrell’s solo career has flourished since his debut at the 2016 Celtic Connections festival. He has achieved numerous accolades, including the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and the ALSR Celtic Music Awards. His fourth solo album is set to release in early 2023.
Daoirí Farrell gained recognition for his album “True Born Irishman” and won two prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2017 for Best Newcomer and Best Traditional Track.
He performed live at the awards ceremony held at London’s Royal Albert Hall. In February 2018, he toured major venues across the UK with the all-star Transatlantic Sessions. In February 2019, he released his new album “A Lifetime of Happiness,” produced by Dónal Lunny. He was also nominated for three RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards in 2019.
In March 2020, Daoirí Farrell’s online concert series, consisting of twenty-five weekly live-streamed concerts, attracted up to 85,000 viewers. This led to him being invited to perform on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme and co-host the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe.
