In from ‘Ireland to Appalachia’ Grammy nominated Irish vocalist Aoife Clancy and renowned ‘Gaelic Americana’ artist Kyle Carey join forces for an evening of Celtic and Appalachian-inspired music.
Aoife Clancy · 7:00pm
Aoife Clancy (pronounced “Eefa”) comes from Co Tipperary, Ireland, where her musical career began at an early age. Her father Bobby Clancy of the legendary Clancy Brothers, placed a guitar in her hands at age ten, and by age fourteen she was playing with her father in nearby folk Clubs and festivals.
Since these early beginnings Aoife has become a recognized artist in her own right. She has been a featured soloist with orchestras such as the Boston Pops and Cincinnati Pops and–while touring with Cherish the Ladies-collaborated with the Boston Pops on their Grammy nominated Celtic album. In addition, Aoife has three solo projects under her belt as well as various recordings with Cherish the Ladies. She now resides in the mountains of NC and performs solo and with her partner Bill Elliott as part of Celtic duo Celtic Confusion.
Kyle Carey · 7:00pm
Kyle Carey’s unique trans-Atlantic fusion includes influences of the American Folk Anthology, the traditional music of Cape Breton, Ireland and Scotland, and the Appalachian poetry of Louise McNeill. As a young woman, Kyle traveled to Cape Breton on a Fulbright Fellowship to learn Scottish Gaelic. Afterwards, she spent a year on the Isle of Skye in Scotland—honing her skills in the Gaelic language and studying traditional singing techniques.
To date she has released three albums—Monongah, North Star and The Art of Forgetting. Kyle's latest was produced by Dirk Powell and features special guests such as Rhiannon Giddens and John McCusker. All her albums are critically acclaimed, and all a direct and compelling expression of her distinctive ‘Gaelic Americana’ sound.
