Aoife O’Donovan to perform at The House
Singer/songwriter Aoife (pronounced eef-ah) O’Donovan and her trio will play The House Cafe in DeKalb on Saturday.
O’Donovan is known as the lead singer of Crooked Still and Sometymes Why, and for singing on the Grammy-winning “The Goat Rodeo Sessions” with Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, Chris Thile and Stuart Duncan.
She has collaborated with some of the most eminent names across roots, classical, bluegrass and jazz, from Alison Krauss and Chris Thile, and has performed alongside Lenny Kravitz, Punch Brothers, The Boston Pops and The Milk Carton Kids.
Her debut solo album, “Fossils,” produced by Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists, Tift Merritt) was released on Yep Roc Records on June 11 and was featured as a “must listen” summer album by Rolling Stone.
O’Donovan will be joined by Punch Brothers member Chris Eldridge for this show. Opening the show will be Kristin Andreassen, an award-winning songwriter and composer of music for both children and adults. She has toured throughout North America, Australia and Europe, mostly with her stringband Uncle Earl.
