RT is delighted to announce that Tr ona N Dhomhnaill will be recognised with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 6th RT Radio 1 Folk Awards in Vicar Street, Dublin on Tuesday 27th of February at 7.45pm.

The RT Radio 1 Folk Awards will be broadcast live on RT Radio 1 and the RT Radio App from 8pm. Highlights from the Awards will be broadcast on RT One television on Saturday 2nd March 2024.

The Lifetime Achievement Award is made annually by the Executive Steering Committee of the RT Radio 1 Folk Awards to a living artist who has made a significant contribution to Irish folk music over many years. The previous winners are Mary Black (2022), Christy Moore (2021), Steve Cooney (2020), Moya Brennan (2019) and Andy Irvine (2018).

Commenting on learning of her Lifetime Achievement Award, Tr ona N Dhomhnaill said: I am delighted and honoured to accept this award for my life in music.

In making the award to Tr ona N Dhomhnaill, the Executive Steering Committee cited, in particular, her influence on other musicians - especially singers and keyboard players - who followed in her wake.

One of these is Natalie N Chasaide - pianist and keyboard player with the Bonny Men - who responded to the news of Tr ona's Lifetime Achievement Award by saying: Growing up, Tr ona was such an influence on me. Her way of playing is so iconic, so individual and so perfect. It's modern and exciting, and yet it sounds so ancient, like it's always been there. And always should have been there.
