Singer and bouzouki player Daoirí Farrell from Dublin, Ireland is set to claim the title of a Paul Brady for his generation. Powerful, perceptive and fluid vocals are teamed with an instrumental musicianship honed through years of study. The result is a musician hailed as the most important traditional singer to emerge in recent years. Since leaving college, where he studied music performance, Daoiri has regularly performed in some of the many singing circles and folk clubs around Ireland, from Dublin’s famous Góilin singers club to the All-Ireland Fleadh to name but a few. He has performed alongside some of the biggest names in Irish and international folk music including Christy Moore, Dónal Lunny, Martin Hayes, Dennis Cahill, Alan Doherty, Danú, Dervish, and more. Although Daoirí has had a great impact on the folk scene in the past few years, the best is still yet to come as this young singer is currently working on his second solo album and launches himself into regular touring beyond Ireland in 2016.
