The three of us came into the airport and the flight was delayed by nearly two hours.
We could tell that everyone was a little bit unhappy about this and Geoff (the banjo player in the video) suggested that we play a bit of the Galway girl, (this song is called The Galway Girl), in a music session. He played a set of traditional irish dance tunes on the banjo and I (Daoiri Farrell) backed him on the Bouzouki. Robbie Walsh (Bodhran Player) then joined us and we had the attention of everyone in the room immediatly. I then proceeded to sing a song. I picked one that I thought everyone would know, The Galway Girl. It went down really well. By this stage my dad had the Canon out and here is the video footage he took. His name is Desmond Farrell and his hobby is photography.
Myself Geoff and Robbie are music pals for years. We were in Cumbria at a music festival called "Maddy Prior's Stepping stones Folk Festival".
My website is Daoiri.com and Robbie's is "The Bodhran Buzz" if anyone wants to check out anymore of our music.
I've recorded two solo albums now with Robbie and various things with Geoff also:
I Mainly play as a solo artist singing traditional songs such as these:
