Within days of Ireland’s lockdown, BBC Folk Award winner Daoirí Farrell set up a corner of his kitchen as a makeshift stage and began live streaming. 

With 1,700 comments and 49,000 views on Facebook alone in the following days, and requests coming in from across the world for another concert the next week, Daoirí began performing weekly at 10pm GMT every Sunday.

Titled The Corner Sessions, it included hand-sanitising reminders, limerick competitions, regular updates on Daoirí’s goldfish, Rocky-themed exercise, Covid-Corner signs made by Daoirí’s father Dessie, and of course some amazing live performances of music from Daoirí’s catalogue

The Corner Sessions continue throughout the current crisis.
