Aoife Scott Band from Dublin, Ireland in Calais!

Aoife Scott (from the famous Black family in Ireland; her mother is Frances Black and her aunt is Mary Black) with band members Andy Meaney (guitar), Eamonn Moloney (flute) both of FullSet and Cathal O’Currain (fiddle and bouzouki).

Calais Celtic Concerts will present Aoife Scott, with her band, at the Calais High School, Thursday night September 28th, at 7:00 p.m. US/ 8:00 p.m. Canadian time. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. EST.  Aoife is on a three-month tour of the U.S.A., and her only Maine appearance will be in Calais, Maine.

Her sublime voice is a thing of beauty that stops people in their tracks, fragile and ethereal one minute and strong and vibrant the next. Dublin folk singer-songwriter Aoife Scott has become a force to be reckoned with on the Irish folk and traditional scene.

With an impeccable pedigree as a member of the legendary Black Family, which includes her mother Frances and aunt Mary Black, Aoife is steadily rising to the top of the traditional and folk music scene, while garnering acclaim and recognition both in Ireland and abroad as she hones her craft.

Aoife gained invaluable international experience when she spent a year touring worldwide as lead singer with Outside Track, whose marriage of Canadian, Scottish, and Irish music and song has been rapturously received around the world. She has also performed with some of the finest acts on the folk and traditional scene both in Ireland and abroad, including We Banjo3, FullSet, Sharon Shannon, Seamus Begley, Altan, Cherish the Ladies, Declan O'Rourke, John Prine and, of course, the Black Family. 

She was invited as an official showcase performer at the National Folk Alliance in Kansas City and performed with the RTE Concert Orchestra as part of Culture Night. Other international performances include performances at the National Celtic Festival in Australia, Mood Indigo Festival in Mumbai and Germany's acclaimed 'Irish Folk Festival' Tour. Aoife has also toured to worldwide destinations, including the UK, Ireland, Germany, Australia, India and the US. She performs as a four piece with flute player Eamonn Moloney and guitarist Andrew Meany, both of the Super Celtic Group FullSet, and Cathal O'Currain on fiddle and bouzouki.

Aoife, who speaks both English and Irish fluently, has been in the music scene from an early age, from listening to her grandparents, mother, aunt and uncles making music around the fire, to observing the backstage workings of festivals worldwide. She and the band just attended the world's largest Irish Festival in Milwaukee last month to audiences that ranged from 1,000 to 9,000 in attendance.

Aoife's debut album, “Carry the Day” was released last year to critical acclaim and rave reviews with the Irish Times describing it as a “richly layered impressive debut album”.
