Aoife O'Donovan

FUV Live - Aoife O'Donovan

by John Platt

I first met Aoife O'Donovan back in 2002 when she came to WFUV with The Wayfaring Strangers, a project that Boston musician Matt Glazer conceived, giving traditional Appalachian songs a jazz treatment. At the time she was all of 19 and studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston, but it was clear she had a gorgeous voice. Later she visited Sunday Breakfast as a member of the progressive string band Crooked Still and as a member of Sometymes Why, a side project with Ruthie Ungar and Kristin Andreassen.
