“FourWinds deliver their tunes and songs with sublime musicianship and conviction, you can only love this band’s music” – Paddy Keenan

Deeply rooted in the tradition, FourWinds produce an exciting landscape of tunes and lyrics that present Irish traditional music in a modern and creative context.

Their influences include Begley and Cooney, The Bothy Band, Planxty, Brady and Irvine, Moving Hearts, Pink Floyd and even Elvis. This energetic quartet delivers a truly unique musical experience.

The band has been awarded the prestigious Danny Kyle Award, presented by the Celtic Connections festival board in recognition of outstanding emerging talent in Celtic music. FourWinds has also been chosen as one of three finalists in the Rising Stars Competition, held by The Gathering in Killarney, Ireland.

The band has performed as FourWinds since 2013 however Daoiri, Tom, Caroline and Robbie have toured extensively throughout Europe, Canada and America in both solo and group contexts (The Daoiri Farrell Band, Solid Clarity and Tom Delany and Caroline Keane duo) for many years, having shared stages with such renowned musicians as Paddy Keenan, The Chieftains, Tommy O’Sullivan, De Temps Antan, FullSet, Muireann NicAmhlaoibh, Karen Tweed and many more.

All four members have received awards at national level, Daoiri and Robbie having claimed the coveted All Ireland titles at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann. Daoiri’s debut solo album ‘The First Turn’ received critical acclaim in 2010, while Tom and Caroline’s debut ‘Framework’ was featured in Tradconnect’s top selling list. The members also feature frequently on many mainstream Irish television channels, including RTÉ, TV3 and the Gaelic language television channel TG4.

FourWinds have just released their debut album, “FourWinds” and are looking forward to a long spring / summer of performances around Ireland, Canada, Europe, including Brittany, France, The U.K and Australia.

Featuring:
Daoiri Farrell: Vocals & Bouzouki
Caroline Keane: Concertina, Whistles & Backing Vocals
Tom Delany: Uilleann Pipes, Whistles & Backing Vocals
Robbie Walsh: Bodhrán, Percussions & Backing Vocals
