"DUBLIN singer-songwriter Aoife Scott has taken home the award for Best Irish Folk Act at this evening's The Irish Post Music Awards at the INEC in Killarney. Beating off legendary musicians "Christy Moore, Lankum, & Emma Langford" in a stiff compeition.
Daughter of Irish singer Frances Black and niece to folk star Mary Black, the 35-year-old is leading the way for the next generation of folk artists in Ireland. The bilingual musician worked in TV production for TG4 before a love for singing inherited from her family took over. Scott's entertainment career began by chance when an actor singing on the IFTA-winning drama 1916: Seachtar na Casca had to leave and Scott filled in. Her beautiful voice made such an impression on the crew that she was asked to sing on all seven episodes of the hit show. Growing in confidence, Scott entered and won competitions such as Fastrack to Feis and the Ballyshannon Folk Festival Showcase and did well enough to leave her TV job and embark on a professional career in folk and traditional music."
