Music

"Whether she's delivering an ancient Irish ballad, and American folk classic, or and urgent contemporary song, Aoife sings with the same gorgeous naturalism as if she were experiencing the emotions in the songs for the first time" - Scott Alaric..Boston Globe


I think Silvery Moon is Clancy's best CD. Her singing is always understated and straightforwad, which is very appealing. It's a direct honest style that reflects her personality. When you meet her she is just who she is and wears that right out front. And she's the same way when she sings" - Brian O'Donovan..Celtic Sojorn WGBH fm

"There is Hope by cousin Robbie O'Connell with soft violin guitar and flute are perfect for the gentleness of Aoife's clear delivery" - Sing out magazine


"Clancy's distinctive mezzo and clarity of phraising make an immediate impression as she explores the restrained emotions of the music" - Kerry Dexter, Dirty Linen Magazine

"To a sparse piano, Clancy tenderly sings a sweetly affecting melody to Henry Lawson's poem of loneliness, love and parting in "Slip Rails and the Spur". In Ron Kavanagh's song of peace and healing "Reconciliation", Clancy's lilting voice guides and anthemic chorus drawn from her Irish heritage" - Stephen Ide, The Patriot Ledger

Bio

Well my story is!..I was brought up in Co Tipperary Ireland and am the daughter of Bobby Clancy of the Legendary Clancy Brothers. My father was a big influence in my life and my mentor. I was performing with him at a very early age and he taught me the guitar and songs that his family passed onto him as well as songs he collected around Ireland in the 1950's. This is where most of my performance repetoire comes from along with original material by other artists such as Robbie O'Connell..my cousin!. I love the idea of continuing on the family tradition which myself and my cousins Robbie O'Connell and Donal Clancy do as a band called The Clancy Legacy. I teach workshops in both traditional Irish song and Clancy family songs throughout the USA. It's important to me to keep the songs alive and pass them on, otherwise they will be lost...and then where would we be!
