Rising folk music star at the Asgard

Aoife Scott will perform at the Asgard Theatre in Arklow on Saturday, November 30 at 8pm.

Hailing from one of Ireland's most musical families, Aoife's recent successes include being named Best Folk Act at the Irish Post Music Awards.

Daughter of Frances Black and niece of Mary, Aoife has inherited all of the family's talent and is steadily rising to the top of the traditional and folk music scene,

Following a summer touring the USA, Aoife Scott returns home to launch the brand-new single from her new album 'Homebird'.

Produced by 12-time Grammy Award winner, banjo and guitar virtuoso Ron Block, her second album release is much anticipated in the world of folk and roots music.

Recorded in Nashville and Dublin, 'Homebird' is a collaboration that features many Irish folk musicians, including the Black family on backing vocals, and bluegrass musicians, Sierra Hull, Stuart Duncan and Ron Block.
