Dàibhidh Stiùbhard is a traditional singer from County Tyrone. He is part of a new generation of singers who take their cues from legends of the Ulster tradition such as Paddy Tunney, Sarah Makem, and Rita Gallagher. He is passionate about promoting a message of shared culture and heritage, embracing both the Ulster Scots and Irish aspects of Northern Irish culture in his music. In 2018, he became an Ulster traditional singing champion at the Fleadh Cheoil, and in 2020 he releases his debut album, An Sionnach Dubh: a collection of classic folk songs from Ireland and Scotland alongside newly-penned originals.
