Brendan Farrell is a singer / song writer from County Mayo in Ireland. Brendan has been performing and writing for the past 20 years and is an exciting and dynamic performer with a big heart and an even bigger voice.
Brendan specialises in Irish, European and American Folk and Ballad music, but is equally comfortable performing modern classics from a wide range of Pop, Rock and Country artists.
Brendan has performed across Ireland and Britain, Europe and North America, and he is vastly experienced in entertaining large crowds of varying ages.
A founding member of the well-known folk and ballad group, The Sam Maguires, Brendan has performed to audiences up to 20,000 people.
He has recently delved in to the world of theatre and is currently touring his new original Folk & Ballad Musical – TAKE ME HOME COLLEEN – which is a reflection on Ireland’s difficult past, during the genocidal period from 1845 to 1850 when a Potato blight struck Ireland.
Brendan delivers a haunting and heart wrenching catalogue of 12 songs in TAKE ME HOME COLLEEN which are complemented by a narrated chapter and a cinematic backdrop. He recently toured North America with the show, and loves nothing more than to take on a new audience.
