The Place Bedford are very excited to welcome Daoiri Farrell back to the venue after his 2017 gig coincided with his BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards – Horizon Artist win the night before – since then he has gone from strength to strength & he returns with more captivating and beautiul music to wow local audiences.

“Daoirí Farrell is singlehandedly spearheading a resurgence of the authentic in Irish folk music…he is rightly in demand all over the world.” Irish Music 

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

It’s commonly accepted that Dublin-born singer and bouzouki player Daoirí Farrell is one of most important singers to come out of Ireland in recent years. 

A product of Dublin’s famous club An Góilin Traditional Singers, since launching his own solo live career at the 2016 Celtic Connections, Daoirí Farrell has gone from strength to strength. On the verge of releasing his fourth solo album in early 2023, he can boast numerous honours from BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards to ALSR Celtic Music accolades. 

He has received endorsements from the likes of Christy Moore (‘Daoirí has assumed the mantle of Luke [Kelly]’), Mark Radcliffe (‘What a voice’) and Dónal Lunny (‘Daoirí is one of the most important traditional singers to emerge in the last decade’), with his music and live performances earning the acclaim of respected publications including MOJO, The Irish Post, Songlines and more.
