Traditional singer and bouzouki player Daoiri Farrell and Northern Irish musician Damien O'Kane double headline this St Patrickâ€™s day show.
Described as one of the most important singers to come out of Ireland by his peers, Daoiri's perceptive and fluid vocals are coupled with an instrumental musicianship driven by a deep love of Irish traditional song. His album 'True Born Irishman' was released October 2016 and has been receiving rave reviews.
'Farrell has created quite a buzz in Irelandâ€¦itâ€™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
Damien O'Kane is a musician of many talents. Teamed with Steven Byrnes (Treacherous Orchestra) and Steven Iveson's (Damien Oâ€™Kane Band) exhilarating electric guitar playing, The Damien O'Kane Trio take traditional Irish music and make it for the 21st century. Their album 'Areas Of High Traffic' was nominated for Album Of The Year at the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
'As magnificent a re-imagining of traditional folk as you are likely to hear.' ***** Sunday Express
