Daoirí Farrell at Mill Race Folk


We are so excited to announce that the next Mill Race Folk is coming to The Place Theatre on Tuesday 4th April.  Headlining is Dublin’s Daoirí Farrell, who has just received THREE nominations in the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in the following categories:

*Best Singer
*The Horizon Award for Best Newcomer
*Best Traditional Track

(Van Diemen’s Land from the album ‘True Born Irishman’)

We can’t wait to see him perform under Davy’s tree, it’s going to be a very special night. The awards ceremony is the following night, so there is certainly going to be some magic in the air! We hope you can make it!

Tickets are available now from The Place Theatre

What the press have said about True Born Irishman:

‘On only his second solo album this former electrician surely steps info Irish folk legend….Put his ferocious and dramatic version of Van Diemen’s Land against the pitiful U2 Rattle And Hum rendition and the depth and intensity of Farrell’s art is clear.  Bold and Undeniable.’ **** Daily Mirror

‘The creamy forthrightness of Paul Brady, the occasional guile and nuance of Andy Irvine and the attitude and approach to material, perhaps, of Christy Moore.  Not a bad trio of names to throw into a barrel of comparisons but the signs are all there that this is a guy with the conviction and wherewithal to justify them and take the re-birth of authentic Irish songmaking several leagues forward…an exceptionally good singer and a great bunch of songs.  Is any more than that needed?  Not in this case.’  Colin Irwin, fRoots

‘True Born Irishman is definitely one of the year’s outstanding Irish music albums; you owe it to yourself to hear it.’ Fatea

‘Farrell has created quite a buzz in Ireland…it’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
