|Following a year of nonstop touring with a trio in support of her critically acclaimed sophomore album, In The Magic Hour, musician/songstress Aoife O’Donovan will perform a limited run of solo dates in the UK starting with a May 21st date in London, her first solo UK tour in 3 years.
Aoife O’Donovan’s performance from Other Voices Austin in Arlyn Studios will feature in the Other Voices Austin Special on the 23rd of March 2017 at 23:30. It will air on Ireland’s national broadcaster RTE 2.
Written in the wake of her grandfather’s death, In The Magic Hour has garnered tremendous praise since its January 2016 release as “gorgeous” (Rolling Stone Country) and as an “exhilarating…exploratory” (MOJO 4-star) ode to her idyllic childhood summers surrounded by family. The Guardian said Aoife possesses “the ability to surprise an audience with the contrast between her gentle appearance at the microphone and the invisible punch of her performance.”
Produced by Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Neko Case) and including special guests Chris Thile, Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Gabriel Kahane among others, In The Magic Hour is Aoife O’Donovan’s follow-up to her 2013 solo debut Fossils, which earned props from the New York Times, NPR and President Obama, who included a track on his 2015 summer vacation playlist.
