Darren is a folk musician and author from Dublin, Ireland. He plays a mixture of folk songs from Ireland, Scotland, England and America.
It was then in his late teens that he picked up the banjo and then later the octave mandolin and mandola. He learned from some of the great folk and trad musicians in his area: that included Tom Moran, Liam O'Neill, Darach de Brun and John Lane. He then went on to play and record with such bands as The Broadside Merchants, So-Ranna, Tam-Lin and The Feekers.
Darren Lynch's keen ear for a song, along with intricate bouzouki work, adds a rich, diverse layer to this album and his take on these folk songs are rooted in a strong tradition of Ballyfermot Musicians.
