Meet star vocalist Nell Ní Chróinín, and learn some songs from her repertoire!

Nell’s multiple awards include TG4 Traditional Singer of the Year 2012 and she was also the winner of the prestigious Oireactas ‘Corn Uí Riada’ award in 2014. Ní Chróinín is originally from ‘An Choill Mhór’, in the Irish-speaking town of Béal Átha an Ghaorthaidh, although her family is originally from nearby Cúil Aodha. Her interest in sean-nós singing arose after attending her first Oireachtas na Gaeilge event when she was ten years old. In her own words, “It was a result of the Oireachtas that I was given a chance to meet with some of the greatest singers, dancers, poets, composers and characters who have now passed on”. Nell joined Danú in 2016, marking the beginning of an exciting new chapter in the band’s legacy.
