Aoife O'Donovan

For a decade, Aoife O'Donovan featured as the captivating lead singer of the Boston-based progressive string band Crooked Still. She was a featured vocalist on The Goat Rodeo Sessions, the Grammy-winning album by Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile. She has made regular appearances on A Prairie Home Companion and collaborated with some of the most eminent names in music across a wide variety of genres from Alison Krauss to Dave Douglas. O'Donovan makes her first stop at The Shedd on tour in support of her new album, In The Magic Hour (Yep Roc Records, January 22), a 10 song album full of the singer's honeyed vocals mixed with gauzy, frictionless sounds: splashing cymbals, airy harmonies, the leisurely baritone musings of an electric guitar. Written in the wake of O'Donovan's grandfather's death, In the Magic Hour is her most introspective effort yet, an aching exploration of memory and mortality.
