Dan McCabe

Dan McCabe – Balladeer Extraordinaire

Coming from a long lineage of folk musicians Dan McCabe commenced his career in music at an early age. Dan would eventually go from strength to strength in this genre of the industry and consequently it became his full time occupation.

Due to the Covid 19 lockdown and the lack of opportunity to benefit from ‘Live Music’ performances Dan turned his focus to posting self made videos of his music on social media platforms, merely as a pastime and an escape from the hardship and gloom of the pandemic. Completely unexpectedly these recordings would be viewed over 12 million times  online and as a consequence it also caught the attention of senior producers at RTE. Dan was invited to Aras an Uachtarain by President Michael D Higgins and performed ‘The Parting Glass’ to the delight of the president.

During the Summer of 2020 Dan featured on the Sunday Game on RTE TV and performed a version of Luke Kelly’s ‘Song for Ireland’ as a tribute to healthcare workers battling the Covid 19 pandemic. This segment went viral and acted as a real catalyst with Dan gaining a huge online audience and leading the way for various TV appearances.

Live Concert performances will follow throughout the 32 counties of Ireland at the appropriate time. Watch this space for full details.
