Recognized for her ethereal voice and substantive songwriting, Aoife O’Donovan is also known for her collaborations.  Called “a vocalist of unerring instinct” by the New York Times, O’Donovan is one of the most sought after vocalists and songwriters of her generation and her career has allowed her to collaborate with some of the most eminent names in music across a wide variety of genres.  Co-founder of the bands Crooked Still and I’m With Her, O’Donovan is the featured vocalist on The Goat Rodeo Sessions, the Grammy-winning album by Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, and Chris Thile. O’Donovan also sings in the house band on the radio variety show Live From Here. 

Spring 2020 will bring a new program from Aoife entitled Songs and Strings where, alongside a string quartet, she will perform the song cycle “Bull Frogs Croon". Written and developed with Jeremy Kittel and Teddy Abrams, the piece uses stunning text by the late, and former Poet Laureate of Oregon, Peter Sears, which premiered in 2015 at the Britt Festival. The remainder of the evening will mix songs from her expansive career with a few traditional favorites.

Canadian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist (banjo, guitar) Taylor Ashton opens with a 30-minute set.
