IRELAND | 2021 PARTICIPANT
Hailing from the Armagh-Monaghan border, Dani Larkin is a singer-songwriter and folk musician who is being heralded as one of Ireland’s finest songwriters.
2021 is set to be Dani Larkin’s breakthrough year – being added to line-ups at Folk Alliance International and The Great Escape. June 18th will see the release of her eagerly awaited debut album, with Hot Press quoting it as “promising to be one of the most exciting contemporary folk albums this year”.
She’s been artist-in-residence at Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival and has shared stages with the likes of Rufus Wainwright, Lisa O’Neill and Wallis Bird. She recently appeared at Ireland Music Week, Other Voices (Belfast and Ballina), Sound of Belfast and Output. Despite restrictions, Dani focused on strengthening her team which now includes management Jawdropper Music, booking agent Midnight Mango, sync agent Plutonic Group Syncs and Irish promoters Singular Artists, and is for sure an artist on the rise!
A storyteller by nature, her music is inspired by the folktales she was raised with, intertwined with elements of traditional melodies and rhythms from around the world in a timeless tradition.
