Event Details

The forty-third Cork Folk Festival presents leading traditional band, Danú, in concert.

Hailing from Counties Waterford, Cork, Dublin and Donegal, the band formed in 1995 as part of Ireland’s delegation to Lorient Inter-Celtic Festival in Brittany, France (an annual event that is the biggest gathering of Celtic nations in the world). The debut album simply entitled Danú was released by the band in 1997 to huge critical acclaim and in 1999 Danú signed a multi-album record deal with the US based recording label Shanachie Entertainment with whom they subsequently released five albums and a live DVD internationally between 2000 and 2006.
Over the past few years Danú has added three independent releases to their discography. For over two decades Danú’s virtuosi players on flute, tin whistle, fiddle, button accordion, bouzouki, and vocals (Irish and English) have delighted audiences worldwide. Winners of numerous awards, Danú has toured throughout Europe and North America.
Danú welcomed star vocalist Nell Ní Chróinín into the fold in 2016 after Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh’s departure. Nell’s multiple awards include TG4 Traditional Singer of the Year 2012 and the Oireacthas Corn Uí Riada award in 2014.
