The Acoustic Yard is delighted to announce that Aoife Scott will be appearing at this year’s festival in Matt Molloy’s Westport Co.Mayo on May 12th 2019.
A member of the legendary Irish folk music family, The Black Family, Aoife Scott is an award-winning folk singer and songwriter who has steadily made a name for herself in traditional and folk music scenes around the world. Last year, her single “All Along the Wild Atlantic Way” hit the #1 spot on iTunes, knocking Ed Sheeran off the top. It was also named “Song of the Year” at the Irish Folk Music Awards in 2017.
Aoife Scott’s music has a broad creative scope that is mostly influenced by her roots in folk and traditional Irish music. Fragile and ethereal one minute and strong and vibrant the next, her dynamic and profound vocals explore the emotional depths of her lyrics, leaving the audience entranced. Scott’s most recent accolades in 2018 have seen her named Best Folk Act at the Irish Post Music Awards (IRE), as well as Emerging Artist of the Year at the Live Ireland Awards (US).
Following the success of her debut album, “Carry the Day”, wherein the Irish Times quoted it as “richly layered impressive debut album” she has toured nearly non stop overseas over the span of 3 years, wherein she headlined folk and Irish festivals all over the world including; Milwaukee Irish Festival (US), Port Fairy Folk Festival (AU), and The National Folk Festival (AU).
