The Belfast-based singer releases a special edition or her song 'Bloodthirsty' from her debut album, Notes For A Maiden Warrior.
Ireland's emerging folk star Dani Larkin has just released her newest ethereal single, 'Bloodthirsty- Live At The Folk Museum'.
Recorded live from The Ulster Folk Museum as part of her debut album release, the narrative single dives deep into the mythic imagination, uncovering the age-old story of the hunted and the hunter.
Focusing on how strength can transform and change the dominant narrative, this track is a testament to those who have made needed journeys to their courage and duty to the self.
Debuting just last year, Larkin has continuously picked up speed with each release, garnering attention not only from Ireland, but worldwide.
Her album, Notes For A Maiden Warrior, which was accompanied by a special live show in conjunction with the Irish Arts Centre, New York, was nominated for 'Best Album' at this year's Northern Ireland Music Prize.
An unforgettable performer, Dani Larkin's captivating vocals take centre stage, accompanied by her impressive guitar and banjo playing. The musician has the ability to blend the old and the new throughout her songwriting, weaving in themes of Celtic folklore alongside her own experiences.
As well as embarking on her debut album headline tour this fall, Dani Larkin will be opening for one of Ireland’s best-loved singer-songwriters, Glen Hansard, at the Sligo Live Festival this October.
