An Artist on the Rise - Daoirí Farrell

Daoiri­ Farrell is a folk singer and bouzouki, guitar and banjo player from Dublin who is a graduate of the Ceoltoir, Higher National Diploma In Traditional Music Performance course in BCFE. Winning this years All Ireland Fleadh in Derry in the senior Songs in English category will have raised his profile somewhat and rightly so.  We had the pleasure of seeing him in action at this weeks Session with the Pipers, sharing a stage with Mark Redmond ( Pipes ) and Pearl and Paul Ó Shaughnessy ( fiddle ) who were likewise impressive. 

However Daoirí's performance of a number of songs revealed an artist with a very bright future indeed and well worth checking out.  His influences are evident in his delivery and include Andy Irving,  Christy Moore and Frank Harte.  In addition to his pure and natural voice you can add in his great bouzouki playing and you start to get the picture.  He gave a great performance and needs only to provide a more succinct focus to his very humorous and natural story telling ability to complete the package. He's only young and he will be very big indeed.  One of the best new voices to come out of Dublin in a long while.  He released an album in 2009 called The First Turn and you can listen to a few tracks on the link below.
