Description:

Recognized for her ethereal voice and substantive songwriting, AOIFE O’DONOVAN to perform 3/22 in the Longworth-Anderson Series at beautiful Memorial Hall.  Called “a vocalist of unerring instinct” by the New York Times, O’Donovan is one of the most sought-after singer-songwriters of her generation and her career has allowed her to collaborate with some of the most eminent names in music across a wide variety of genres.  Co-founder of the bands Crooked Still and I’m With Her, O’Donovan is the featured vocalist on The Goat Rodeo Sessions, the Grammy-winning album by Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, and Chris Thile.  O’Donovan also sings in the house band on the radio variety show Live From Here.

Special guest TAYLOR ASHTON to perform songs inspired by the primeval crookedness of traditional old-time music, the humor and heartbreak of Randy Newman, the cosmic emotionality of mid-career Joni Mitchell, and the sage vulnerability of Bill Withers.  Somehow, he finds a way to make this all work on the clawhammer banjo.

Be part of another Longworth-Anderson Series evening of great music, food, and drink.  Complimentary pre-concert reception features live local music from Mike Oberst, light bites from Keystone Bar & Grill and Mattson Barbecue, and beverage tastings.  Reception runs from 5:30-7:00 p.m. and concert begins at 7:00 p.m.
