Headlining the final concert of Yn Chruinnaght Celtic Gathering on the Saturday night will be Irish singer and bouzouki player Daoirí Farrell, accompanied by bodhran player Robbie Walsh and uilleann piper Michael O’Connell.
Recently awarded ‘male vocalist of the year’ by LiveIreland, Daoirí has been described as “one of most important singers to come out of Ireland in recent years”. Armed with several BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and a new album produced Irish music legend Donal Lunny, the rich vocals and charming personality of this ‘True-born Irishman’ (title of his 2016 album) is bound to ensure a sell-out concert. Organisers extend grateful thanks to Culture Ireland for their sponsorship of this evening. Providing musical support for Daoirí Farrell’s concert will be Peddyr Cubberley Trad Trio – Manx flautist and talented tune-smith, Peddyr Cubberley, with Malcolm Stitt (guitar) and Russell Cowin (bodhran).
