Extraordinary ticket sales in Ireland over the past 8 months; that is the success story of Kildare ballad singer, Dan McCabe.
Dan comes from a long lineage of folk musicians and started his career in music at an early age.
With over 12 million viewers online and receiving extensive media attention, a highlight for Dan was performing at Aras an Uachtarain for President Michael D Higgins and singing, ‘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.
A new addition to Dan’s concert show is brilliant young ballad singer, Meadhbh Walsh. Meadhbh has already accumulated 74,000 followers on Facebook and is highly acclaimed for her beautiful rendition of her favourite ballads.
