An outstanding singer, stage personality, composer and historian of the music and song tradition, Derek Warfield is a legend wherever Irish roots have been put down. He enjoyed phenomenal success for some 40 years with the Wolfe Tones, including best-selling albums, number one hits, television appearances and shows in Carnegie Hall, New York and the Royal Albert Hall, London. Added to that, Derek has been prolific as a solo artist, with an astonishing twelve albums in just over a decade.
Ten years on from the begining of his solo career, the man often described as ‘Ireland’s greatest ballad singer’ is bringing an old tradition with a young sound to his legion of fans across the world.
The Young Wolfe Tones feature some of the finest Irish musicians and singers from a younger generation and bring guaranteed excitement, fun and passion to every performance.
Damaris Woods hails from Co. Meath and is recognised as one of the finest tenor banjo players in Ireland, but perhaps more importantly she is also an expert teacher, as many of her pupils in the communities of Kildare, Meath, Cavan and Tyrone will attest. Her annual summer music camp in Cavan town, now in its tenth year is recognised as one of the most important musical events for the transmission of our music, song and dance heritage.
At 21 years of age, Dublin native Fintan Warfield has toured extensively throughout Ireland, Europe and the United States as well as having numerous recordings and radio appearances to his credit. Fintan is one of Ireland’s finest up and coming balladeers and is quickly following in the footsteps of the famous Warfield clan, sharing the same passion of his family mentor, Derek W arfield.
Irish-American musician Dan Lowery completes the Young Wolfe Tones’ line up. Although hailing from Dallas, Texas, his family origins lie in County Cork. Dan’s family may have left Ireland generations ago but they brought their love of Irish culture with them and gave Dan the
wonderful gift of Irish music. Dan brings a wealth of musical talent to The Young Wolfe Tones and is a multi-talented flute and tin-whistle Player, guitarist and vocalist.
Derek explains, “We all share the same passion and enthusiasm for our heritage. I have always believed that because of our history there is something very profound in our song and musical tradition. I have long considered it a privilege to carry its message of inspiration but perhaps most importantly, it has been fun and enjoyable and every performance gets better. The experience has reinvigorated me and has given these young players and singers the opportunity to display their skills and talents around the world.”
‘Derek Warfield & The Young Wolfe Tones’ have performed to great acclaim at all major Irish music festivals in the United States including ‘The Great American Irish Festival’ in New York, the ‘Dublin Irish Festival’ in Ohio, ‘Kansas City Irish Fest’ and the largest Irish music festival in the world, Milwaukee’s ‘Irish Fest’. These events regularly see attendances of over 100,000 and are a musical showcase for the finest Irish bands.
The Hungry Monks have released several CD recordings on their own label, Hungry Monk Recordings. As well as being active performers, The Hungry Monks are music educators and publish their own work through Hungry Monk Publications.
