Darren grew up in Dublin watching local musicians in pubs and clubs and has always loved traditional folk music. When he was younger he would enjoy watching Irish bands perform. He would soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the merriment and of a folk gig. Some of his early influences were local musicians in Dublin such as Tom Moran, Liam O’Neill and John Lane.

He now performs his gigs with the same spirit and likes to stick with tradition. Darren helps to keep the old Irish songs popular with younger audiences, and performs them whenever he can.

When asked about his love for music Darren said: “Irish music and folk music is the music that strikes a chord with me. No other music has the same meaning and feeling as folk music. It has stood the test time, and is as the names says, people’s music.”
