Dani Larkin is a singer-songwriter and folk musician from the Armagh-Monaghan border with Ireland. Her sound is inspired by the Irish traditional melodies she was raised with, her songs are reminiscent of Irish folktales.
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, 2021 has been the breakthrough year for this emerging alt-folk artist Dani Larkin, with the release of her debut album ‘Notes For A Maiden Warrior’. Nominated for ‘Best Album’ at the 2022 Northern Ireland Music Prize, and ‘Best Emerging Artist’ at RTE Folk Awards, Dani Larkin has been an artist picking up speed with each release, and one that has been making her mark on the industry, in her own way. With appearances last year at The Great Escape, Doolin Folk fest, Folk Alliance, and selected to open for Snow Patrol to sold-out venues of London’s Palladium Theatre, the Waterfront Hall in Belfast, as well as a special home show for Hot House Flowers – she is a live act not to be missed.
An artist renowned for her unforgettable live performances, her vocals takes center stage, accompanied always by her impressive guitar and banjo playing. Larkin has the ability to blend the old and new perfectly through her songwriting, delicately weaving themes of Celtic folklore with the more modern day landscape of her own experiences.
