Aoife was truly delighted to accept an Irish Folk Music Award on Friday night.
Notice from The Irish Folk Music Awards :
The winner of our Single of The Year award for 2016/2017 is All Along the Wild Atlantic Way by Aoife Scott. Aoife is from one of the great Irish musical clans, The Black Family. Her excellent debut album Carry The Day is a blend of superbly interpreted traditional folk songs such as The Hills of South Armagh, as well as her own compositions with her writing partner Enda Reilly. All Along the Wild Atlantic Way takes the listener on a breathtaking coastal journey along the West coast of Ireland. Like so many great Irish songs, it sounds like it has been around for years. Aoife remains true to her Rathlin Island and Dublin City musical heritage, an integrety and talent that has seen her embark on a 9 week tour of Europe and 2 American tours this year.
