‘CARRY THE DAY’ TOUR
The Workman’s Club
March 4th, 2016
Following her nationwide tour, which included her SOLD OUT album launch at this years Temple Bar Trad Fest, Aoife Scott returns to The Workmans club for the pinnacle of her Irish Tour.
‘Carry the Day’ is eagerly-anticipated debut is a folk album that is heavily influenced by Aoife’s passion for traditional music, and it contains a selection of stories the socially-aware singer wanted to tell, some personal, and others historical and socially-themed. Covering modern day female warriors to real-life heroines from the 1800s, two stand-out tracks include “Fásaim” which outlines Aoife’s thoughts on her brother’s marriage, to “We Know Where We stand,” a timely song for the 100th anniversary of 1916, which questions whether the men of that time even knew what their sacrifice would mean for Ireland.
Aoife, who speaks both English and Irish fluently, has been immersed 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 both here and abroad. She moved to the west coast of Ireland several years ago, and her passion for the native Irish language spoken there is reflected in her choice of songs, including the first single from her forthcoming debut album, All Along the Wild Atlantic Way.
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.
