“The finest Irish male folk singer-storyteller this side of Christy Moore and Paul Brady.” The Weekend Australian

Since launching his own solo live career at the 2016, Daoirí Farrell has gone from strength to strength with numerous honours from BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards to ALSR Celtic Music accolades and worldwide touring. He has also received endorsements from the likes of Christy Moore (“Daoirí has assumed the mantle of Luke [Kelly]”) and Mark Radcliffe (“What a voice”).

Daoirí’s long-awaited fourth album, The Wedding Above In Glencree, was released in late February 2023 and made the RTÉ Radio 2 playlist in Ireland and reached number 11 on the Official UK Folk Albums Chart.

“The Wedding Above In Glencree… a landmark album in Irish acoustic music.” ★★★★ Songlines

Reviews

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

Dónal Lunny

“Farrell has created quite a buzz…it’s easy to hear why. His powerfully unadorned vocals might be from any era, variously recalling Paul Brady and Andy Irvine… it’s a powerful statement.”

Mojo

“It doesn't get much better than that. The real deal. What a voice.”

Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2 Folk Show
