A New York Evening With Aoife O’Donovan

The GRAMMY Museum in partnership with the Americana Music Association is thrilled to present an intimate conversation with GRAMMY Award-winning artist Aoife O’Donovan followed by a performance at The Greene Space in NYC. The conversation, moderated by singer-songwriter and author Rosanne Cash, will include a discussion about the making of O’Donovan’s latest release, All My Friends, her creative process, career, and more.

All My Friends – O’Donovan’s first self-produced LP – is inspired by the passage of the 19th amendment and the evolving landscape of women’s rights in America over the past century. O’Donovan artfully draws on speeches and letters by suffragist Carrie Chapman Catt to write intricately filigreed new, original songs infused with modern perspective and her own experiences as a woman and mother. Amidst a lush, genre-blurring soundscape featuring brass, orchestra, girls’ choir, and O’Donovan’s own “stunning” (Rolling Stone) voice, All My Friends wrestles with questions of what has – and hasn’t – changed for American women in the 100 years since gaining the right to vote. 

Aoife O’Donovan is one of the many artists to be featured in the GRAMMY Museum’s New York City program series, which includes bringing a slate of the GRAMMY Museum’s renowned GRAMMY In The Schools Education Programs and Public Programs to the East Coast. “A New York Evening With…” is generously supported by the Dawn and Brian Hoesterey Family Foundation.  

ABOUT AOIFE O’DONOVAN

Deemed “a vocalist of unerring instinct” by the New York Times, GRAMMY Award-winning artist Aoife O’Donovan operates in a thrilling musical world beyond genre. She has released three critically-acclaimed and boundary-blurring solo albums including her most recent record, 2022’s boldly orchestrated and literarily crafted Age Of Apathy, which earned three GRAMMY nominations and was named “a moving self-portrait” by NPR. Folk Alliance International named the song “B61” their 2022 Song Of The Year. In addition to appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, CBS Saturday Morning, Kelly Clarkson and PBS Newshour, Pitchfork said O’Donovan “taps into the propulsion of prime Joni Mitchell.” Following the release of Age of Apathy, O’Donovan also recorded and toured behind a full album reinterpretation of Bruce Springsteen’s landmark Nebraska album, with performances at Newport Folk Festival, Tønder Festival, and more.

A savvy and generous collaborator, Aoife is one third of the group I’m With Her with bandmates Sara Watkins and Sarah Jarosz. The trio’s debut album See You Around was hailed as “willfully open-hearted” by NPR Music. I’m With Her earned an Americana Music Association Award in 2019 for Duo/Group of the Year, and a Grammy-award in 2020 for Best American Roots Song.

O’Donovan spent the preceding decade as co-founder and front woman of the string band, Crooked Still and is the featured vocalist on The Goat Rodeo Sessions — the group with Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, and Chris Thile. She has appeared as a featured vocalist with over a dozen symphonies including the National Symphony Orchestra, written for Alison Krauss and spent a decade as a regular contributor to the radio variety shows “Live From Here” and “A Prairie Home Companion.”
