Lúnasa are joined for their winter season tour by the award winning Irish singer and bouzouki player Daoirí Farrell. Named for an ancient Celtic harvest festival, Lúnasa was formed in 1997 from members of some of the greatest Irish groups of the previous decade, an early review from Folk Roots magazine describing the band as an “Irish music dream team”. From the start, the band's complex arrangements and unique sound reshaped the boundaries of traditional music and energized audiences the world over.

Daoirí Farrell

Singer and bouzouki player Daoirí Farrell is described by many of the biggest names in Irish folk music as the most important singer to come out of Ireland in recent years. His 2017 album ‘True Born Irishman' won two prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 for Best Newcomer and Best Traditional Track. Since then, he has toured with Jerry Douglas and the all-star Transatlantic Sessions in major venues across the UK and in 2019, Daoirí's new album ‘A Lifetime Of Happiness', was nominated for three RTE Folk Awards in Ireland.

"Daoirí Farrell is single-handedly spearheading a resurgence of the authentic in Irish folk music…he is rightly in demand all over the world.” - Irish Music Magazine
