Dan O’Farrell

Described as ‘erudite, challenging and morose’ by NME’s Amrik Rai, and as ‘one of England’s best undiscovered songwriters’ by LouderThanWar, Dan O’Farrell is a Southampton-based purveyor of radical, romantic ‘snark-folk’. Both solo and with his band – The Difference Engine – Dan has been playing bigger and bigger shows in the last 2 years, culminating in spots at Wickham, Bestival and Victorious festivals and support slots for The Levellers, Griff Rhys, John Power, Wreckless Eric, Steve Mason and Ian Hunter. He recently released his second album with The Difference Engine – ‘These Dark Ages Are Hurting All The People That We Love’ – which has garnered fantastic reviews and was recently named in LouderThanWar’s ‘Top 50 Albums of the Year’ feature.

The Difference Engine ‘core trio’ features South Coast folk and jazz legend (and talented artist in his own right) Rick Foot on double-bass and vocals, and the superb Chris Walsh on drums and percussion.
