Four Winds - Tom Delaney,Caroline Keane,Robbie Walsh and Daoiri Farrell

Four Wind's maiden release(Tom Delaney on pipes,Caroline Keane on concertina,Robbie Walsh on bodhran and Daoiri Farrell on bouzouki and vocals) and launched at the Fleadh Nua in Ennis in May 2015, this band has a feeling of permanency about it and judging by the quality and maturity of the music and song, it will be the first of many recordings.

Four Winds is an Irish traditional music band that got together in 2013. The idea of forming a band had been in all four members mind for a while. 

In the meantime Caroline and Daoiri also played together in Solid Clarity. It was only a matter of time until the four of them joined forces to create the unique sound that is Four Winds.

The band consists of:
Daoiri Farrell (Vocals and Bouzouki.)
Daoiri's versatile repertoire consists of Irish traditional songs, humour ballads, songs of exile, popular contemporary songs and much more, with a particular gra for uncovering much less well known songs.
Caroline Keane (Concertina). From a young age, Caroline was exposed to the richness of West Limerick and Sliabh Luachra traditional music, an influence which has become the cornerstone of her uniquely vibrant, passionate and emotive style of concertina playing.
Robbie Walsh (bodhran, percussions and backing vocals) Robbie is a bodhran player hailing from Dublin. He won the all Ireland bodhran title in 2008 were he then went on to become a Full time musician. The art of the drum was passed on by his uncle. His powerful modern style is one of the foundations of the sound of the band.
Tom Delany(Uilleann pipes and whistles) With an Irish father and French mother, Tom gained his musicality through osmosis, born and raised in a rich environment of Irish music. Inspired by the traveling style of piping, his rhythmic playing is powerful and daring.

more about Daoiri:
He recorded his first solo album named The First Turn in 2009. An album of songs which he recorded with Alan Doherty, James Ryan and Robbie Walsh. This put Daoiri on the map within the traditional and folk singing world.
As a member of the Monkstown Comhaltas branch, Daoiri won the English Singing over 18s at the All Ireland Fleadh, held in Co. Derry in 2013, making him, together with Frank Harte, the only Dublin competitors to have won this competition in years.
