Aoife Scott Album Launch & Concert
Saturday 13th February – Tickets £10. Doors 7.30pm
Her sublime voice is a thing of beauty that stops people in their tracks. Fragile and ethereal one minute and strong and vibrant the next, Dublin Folk singer-songwriter Aoife Scott has become a force to be reckoned with on the Irish folk and traditional scene.
With an impeccable pedigree as a member of the legendary Black Family, which includes her mother, Frances, and her aunt, Mary, Aoife is steadily rising to the top of the traditional and folk music scene, while garnering acclaim and recognition both here and abroad as she hones her craft. Fans of IFTA award-winning TV series, 1916 Seachtar na Cásca, will have been seduced by Aoife’s evocative singing, which packed a powerful emotional punch throughout all seven episodes of the landmark TV series. Other acclaimed TV appearances include BBC's Imeall Geal, TG4's An Nollaig Linn and Ceol na nOileáin, and Fleadh TV Live, and Aoife also featured as a presenter on "The Windmill Lane Sessiosn" , the contemporary Irish music programme for TG4.
This eagerly-anticipated debut is a folk album that is heavily influenced by Aoife’s passion for traditional music, and it contains a selection of stories the socially-aware singer wanted to tell, some personal, and others historical and socially-themed. Aoife’s plans for 2016 include the launch of her debut album at the Temple Bar Tradfest in Dublin in January, followed by a nationwide national tour. The singer and her band will also embark on a six- week German tour, and will travel to the US for the Kansas City Irish Fest.
