Instruments: Guitar | Singer | Songwriter

Darragh Purcell is a sound engineer, producer and multi instrumentalist from Ennis Co. Clare.

Having grown up steeped in musical tradition, he was fortunate enough to be exposed to incredibly high-quality music through his sound engineer father, leaving a lasting impression on him. Although he has been honing his guitar skills since his formative years, it wasn’t until 2019 that he finally decided to heed his calling and embark on a career in music.


Evan Flaherty is a songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist hailing from County Clare, Ireland. Growing up in a musical family, he was surrounded by music and was introduced to the art of performance from a young age. Evan began playing guitar and songwriting at 15, and has since been honing his craft. Recently, Evan completed a four-year music degree at BIMM Dublin, where he has continued to improve his skills as a musician and performer.


Scoth (Evan Flaherty and Darragh Purcell) are musical storytellers, who write intensely personal explorations of love, loss and grief. Their personal mythology provides a leaping point from which they attempt to make sense and meaning of the world – creating some truly universal music in the process. Their unique brand of ethereal folk combines traditional elements with lush production and other-worldy harmonies (akin to Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes) And their vast array of influences range from the stripped down folk of Nick Drake and early Sufjan Stevens, to the psychedelic sounds of The Beach Boys and Animal Collective.
