Aoife O’Donovan

Sanders Theatre

With her ethereal voice and substantive songwriting, Grammy Award-winning songwriter and musician Aoife O'Donovan captivates fans and critics alike. She has released three acclaimed solo albums, is co-founder of the bands I’m With Her and Crooked Still, and is the featured vocalist on The Goat Rodeo Sessions with Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, and Chris Thile. A Boston-area native, she returns to Celebrity Series following her celebrated 2021 Celebrity Series at Home streaming concert with Chris Thile. 

The singer's songwriting skills are incomparable, and she has expanded her creative horizons in recent seasons, tackling topics like the suffrage movement and creating works for orchestra and string quartet. For her show at Sanders Theatre, O’Donovan features songs from her recently-released album Age of Apathy, backed by her world-class touring band. 

 

“...[her voice,] at once open and mysterious, compelling in its understatement. Where another singer might head for a showy, dramatic peak, O’Donovan often eases back, letting her phrases evaporate like mist.”
