Music in the Chamber: Daoiri Farrell

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.

“Daoirí is one of the most important traditional singers to emerge in the last decade” Dónal Lunny

“Effortless, instinctive, natural…the real deal.”

Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

“…one of the most significant Irish releases of recent years.”

Songlines

“True Born Irishman is definitely one of the year’s outstanding Irish music albums; you owe it to yourself to hear it”
