Aoife, who speaks both English and Irish fluently, has been immersed in the music scene from an early age, from listening to her grandparents, mother, aunt and uncles making music around the fire, to observing the backstage workings of festivals both here and abroad. She moved to the west coast of Ireland several years ago, and her passion for the native Irish language spoken there is reflected in her choice of songs, including the first single “All Along the Wild Atlantic Way” from her debut album, Carry The Day.
Aoife gained invaluable international experience when she spent a year touring worldwide as lead singer with The Outside Track, whose marriage of Canadian, Scottish and Irish music and song has been rapturously received around the world. She has also performed with some of the finest acts on the folk and traditional scene both here and abroad, including We Banjo 3, FullSet, Sharon Shannon, Séamus Begley, Altan, Cherish the Ladies, Declan O Rourke, John Prine, and of course, the Black Family.
Rounding out the band are Andrew Meaney on guitar and Eamonn Moloney on flute and whistles (both members of FullSet) and Conor Lyons on bouzouki and bodhran.
