"There is something about O'Donovan that can't be denied. Whether it be her easy demeanor or her effervescent writing, unique among her Americana peers, O'Donovan can always be trusted to provide an unforgettable show" (Third Coast Review).

GRAMMY® Award-winning artist Aoife O'Donovan operates in a thrilling musical world beyond genre, mixing folk, bluegrass, blues, and beyond into a lean-in, must-listen brew so mesmerizing the listener has to remember to breathe. She has curated a day of music and workshops culminating in an evening of performances featuring two Virginia-based artists: from Alexandria, the utterly unique instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Yasmin Williams, whose finger-style guitar-playing creates complex rhythms for songs old and new; and The Wildmans, a Floyd-based band steeped in the Appalachian mountain music tradition. Closing out the performances, Aoife will be joined on stage by her husband cellist Eric Jacobsen, music director of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra.
