Dubliner Aoife Scott is the daughter of Frances Black and niece of Mary Black of the famous Black Family of traditional singers and musicians. She followed the family trade in fine style and is today one of the most popular and critically acclaimed singer/songwriters in Ireland.
Aoife released her debut album, Carry the Day, in 2016 and her 2017 single "All Along the Wild Atlantic Way" won Song of the Year honors at the Irish Folk Music Awards. She also had a big hit with "The December Letter," Ireland's top Christmas song of 2019. With her cousins Róisín O & Danny O'Reilly from The Coronas, she released a chart-topping version of the song "Grace" that was recorded at Kilmainham Gaol as part of RTE1's Centenary programming.
Aoife's most recent full-length recording, HomeBird, was produced by 12-time Grammy winner Ron Block. Recorded in Dublin and Nashville, the album features collaborations with top Irish and American bluegrass performers. HomeBird topped the iTunes album chart in Ireland, was an "Album of the Week" on RTÉ Radio 1 and won Aoife "Female Vocalist of the Year" in 2020 and "Female Vocal Album of the Year" for 2021 from the ASLR Celtic Music Awards.
Aoife's most recent single, "Sweet October," features her co-writer Andy Meaney, who will provide guitar accompaniment at the New York Irish Center concert.
