Damien O’Kane is a Northern Irish musician of many talents. In collaboration with master guitarist Steven Byrnes and Steven Iveson’s sublime and exhilarating electric guitar playing, his trio take traditional Irish music and song and turn it into “folk-pop that is Irish music for the 21st century” (The Telegraph).

O’Kane is a singer. A very good one, too, with a relaxed, assured, hypnotic vocal style that exudes a natural warmth and empathy with the colourful characters who occupy his songs. Added to his accomplished banjo and guitar skills, he is an artist of rich imagination and fearless vision. His music embodies both deep respect for the folk tradition as well as a willingness to explore its boundaries.

Daoirí Farrell is a former electrician who decided to change profession after seeing Christy Moore perform on Irish TV. Dublin-born traditional singer and bouzouki player Daoirí (pronounced ‘Derry’) is being described by some of the biggest names in Irish folk music as one of most important singers to come out of Ireland in recent years.
