THEATR Mwldan will welcome Irish singer and bouzouki player Daoirí Farrell to the Cardigan stage on Saturday, March 30 (7.30pm), an artist who’s been described as ‘effortless, instinctive, natural…the real deal' by Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe.

Daoirí (pronounced ‘Derry’) is 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.

Six months after releasing the album ‘True Born Irishman’ Daoirí won two prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 for Best Newcomer, and Best Traditional Track and performed live at the awards ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Since then he has toured twice to the UK and played at festivals in Australia, Canada, the UK, Belgium, Denmark and more.

In February 2018 he toured with the all-star Transatlantic Sessions in major venues across the UK. The follow-up to ‘True Born Irishman’ was released in autumn 2018.

“An album that could yet prove to be one of the most significant Irish releases of recent year,” says Songlines.

“Daoirí Farrell is growing into a force to be reckoned with on the Irish music scene,”


Tickets for Daoirí Farrell are £14 (£13) and £3 mates rates and are available now from Theatr Mwldan’s box office on 01239 621200, online at or via the Mwldan app.
