Aoife Clancy (pronounced "Eefa") brings a refreshing new voice to folk music, one that ranges from traditional Irish songs to ballads and contemporary folk. Aoife comes from the small town of Carrick-on-Suir, in Co Tipperary, Ireland, where her musical career began at an early age. Her father Bobby Clancy of the Clancy Brothers, placed a guitar in her hands at age ten, and by age fourteen was playing with her father in nearby pubs.
Aoife has done six recordings in the last two years, three of which are under RCA Victor. She has also recorded two solo projects "Its about Time" on Rego Records and "Soldiers and Dreams" on Ark Albums. On her debut CD " It's About Time," Aoife presents some traditional favorites, such as "Factory Girl" and "Mrs. McGrath," but she also presents a sassy rendition of Leon Russelson's "Don't Get Married Girls."
On Aoife's solo album, "Soldiers and Dreams," Al Riess, from Dirty Linen magazine, wrote: "Solders and Dreams has a contemporary-meets-traditional-music feel and Clancy's smooth, expressive singing works both ways- ensuring a successful merger of the two approaches and an enjoyable listening pleasure".
Currently, Aoife is planning her solo career and will be touring and performing with her own band.
