Recently, Grammy-winner Aoife O’Donovan released two new, original songs — “More Than We Know” and “Captain’s Clock.” It’s the debut of a collaboration with Grammy-winning producer Joe Henry (Rhiannon Giddens, Bonnie Raitt) that will yield more music in the coming months.

Meanwhile, Aoife headlines Wolf Trap on Wednesday, July 28!

The two new songs arrive ahead of a busy and uniquely varied 2021 tour schedule that will find O’Donovan playing headlining dates both with Alan Hampton (Andrew Bird) and Griffin Goldsmith (from Dawes) and introducing an expanded group later this year that will include second vocalist Isa Burke (Lula Wiles); performances of her newly written song cycle on the women’s suffrage movement “America, Come;” shows with string quartet highlighting material from her 2020 EP Bull Frog’s Croon; dates with Goat Rodeo Sessions, the collaborative group of Yo-Yo Ma, Chris Thile, Edgar Meyer and Stuart Duncan; appearances at Newport Folk, Freshgrass, and more.

Watch a lyric video for “More Than We Know” by Aoife O’Donovan featuring The Milk Carton Kids on YouTube:

Aoife operates in a thrilling musical world beyond genre. Deemed “a vocalist of unerring instinct” by The New York Times, she has released two critically-acclaimed and boundary-blurring solo albums including In the Magic Hour, which Rolling Stone hailed for its “Impressionistic, atmospheric songs [that] relay their narratives against gorgeous pastoral backdrops.”
