Description

Good Thyme Thursdays presents an evening of music in celebration of Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann's second year in Drogheda, Co. Louth. In a special edition of the renowned series, usually run at Good Thyme Cafe on the last Thursday of every month, the event is returning (albeit on a Wednesday!) to the majestic surroundings and ethereal acoustics of the Augustinian Church.

The night will feature performances by two young, vibrant performers of Irish traditional music starting with the official launch of fiddler, Róisín Ward Morrow's debut album, By the Light of the Moon. This unique album of traditional slow airs is a work of strong ambition and deft beauty, crafted through original interpretations by Ward Morrow and arrangements by Breifne Holohan. Rounding off the concert will be the internationally renowned and critically acclaimed singer, Daoirí Farrell. With two BBC Folk Awards to his name and recently featuring on RTE's 'Ireland's Favourite Folk Song', he has been entertaining audiences around the world with no more than his vocal cords, a bouzouki and exceptional stagecraft. The combination of these simple elements however, never fails to leave audiences stunned and moved by this truly unique Irish voice.


Daoiri

Daoirí Farrell

Dublin-born traditional singer and bouzouki player Daoirí (pronounced ‘Derry’) Farrell is one of the best known names in Irish folk music today, described as 'one of the most important traditional singers to emerge in the last decade’ (Dónal Lunny). Plying his trade in Dublin’s famous Góilin Singers Club and at other sessions across the city, he quickly found work accompanying artists including Christy Moore, Martin Hayes, Danú, Julie Fowlis, Kíla, Sean Keane, and more.

In 2017, Farrell won two awards at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, the Horizon Award for best newcomer and Best Traditional Track Award for 'Van Diemen’s Land' from the album True Born Irishman. Since then he has surged to prominence taking his music to festivals and touring across the world including Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, Canada, USA and more. Most recently he released his third album, A Lifetime Of Happiness, produced by Dónal Lunny, and appeared on RTE's 'Ireland's Favourite Folk Song' singing a powerful rendition of 'The Foggy Dew'.
