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

Singer and bouzouki player Daoirí (pronounced ‘Derry’) Farrell is 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. Six months after releasing the album ‘True Born Irishman’ Daoirí won two prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 for Best Newcomer, and Best Traditional Track and performed live at the awards ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Since then he has toured twice to the UK, and played at festivals in Australia, Canada, the UK, Belgium, Denmark and more. In February 2018 he toured with the all-star Transatlantic Sessions in major venues across the UK. The follow-up to ‘True Born Irishman’, produced by Dónal Lunny, is due out in autumn 2018.

‘An album that could yet prove to be one of the most significant Irish releases of recent years.’ **** Songlines

Sirius Arts Centre looks forward to welcoming ‘Daoirí back to Cobh for his second performance in the space.
