Grammy Award-winning musician Aoife O’Donovan has become one of the most sought-after singers and songwriters of her generation.
She’s garnered international recognition both as a solo artist and as a collaborator. Aoife is the lead vocalist for alt-bluegrass band Crooked Still, a string quartet with a fresh perspective on traditional folk tunes. Since then, she’s also co-founded the band I’m With Her with Sarah Jarosz and Sara Watkins. Together, the trio was nominated for two Grammy Awards; Best American Roots Performance and Best American Roots Song, winning the latter. In addition to the bands she is part of, Aoife collaborated with Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile on The Goat Rodeo Sessions, which won two Grammy Awards: Best Folk Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.
The folk-country artist has released three critically-acclaimed solo albums that showcase her esteemed songwriting skills. Her trademark is weaving Gaelic tales into her songs that reflect her Irish-American roots and upbringing.
