Dani Larkin

Beguiling, intense, driven folk songs expertly accompanied by guitar and banjo, singer-songwriter Dani Larkin moves through ruminations on love and experiences of wildness, loss and mystery, steered with a gentle strength and engagingly calm conviction.
Larkin’s debut album, Notes For A Maiden Warrior, was nominated for ‘Best Single’ (2022), ‘Best Album’ at Northern Ireland Music Prize (2021), and Best Emerging Artist at RTE Folk Awards (2021) which put Larkin firmly on the map of contemporary Irish artists to take note of.
2022 saw Larkin tour with Declan O’Rourke, Ye Vagabonds and Wallis Bird as well as performing at Folk Alliance, SXSW, Reeperbahn, English Folk Expo, WOMEX, and a profound performance at the RTE Folk Awards. In addition to appearances with Glen Hansard and Snow Patrol, it is clear that Larkin has firmly established herself as a must-see artist on the national and international stage. 2023 has seen the singer-songwriter perform her first run of sold out shows in New York and a debut tour in Australia at a series of festivals and headline shows including the world-renowned Portfairy Folk Festival.
In 2023 Larkin followed up her critically acclaimed debut with Walking With Natives , which coincided with an Irish Tour during which she sold out shows in Belfast and Dublin followed by headline tours in South Korea and Finland. In addition to collaborations with the Ulster Orchestra and the RTE Concert Orchestra, Walking With Natives is a pathway to the beyond.
Pipped by RTE Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, Double J (Australia) and Folk Radio UK as a rising star on the Irish folk and alternative scene. With upcoming television appearances on Fanning At Whelans and Sessions From Oblivion Larkin is truly ‘One of the finest songwriters of our time’. An artist renowned for her unforgettable live performances, Larkin has the ability to blend the old and new within the contemporary landscape of her own experience.
