‘Carry The Day’ from Aoife Scott - once you listen the rapture is complete 

Folk singer-songwriter Aoife Scott has an indefinable quality to her luscious voice that simply compels you to listen ... and once you listen to one song the rapture is complete, you’re hooked. Perhaps more widely known to many as lead singer with The Outside Track, now with her debut album ‘Carry The Day’ that distinctive voice is reaching out to a wider audience. A speaker of both the English and Irish languages, Aoife is steeped in musical tradition and brings the values of that heritage to her songwriting and performing. 

The album includes six songs penned by Aoife and Enda Reilly, plus six more from such worthies as Don Mescall, Eoghan Scott and Briege Murphy and throughout Aoife lifts each song with care and holds them in the embrace of her voice. The songs on ‘Carry The Day’ move their narratives across places, people, experiences and memories that all hold special places in Aoife’s heart and sharing is a wonderful experience. From the stunningly beautiful ‘All Along the Wild Atlantic Way’, and ‘Know Where We Stand’ to ‘Gypsy Warrior’ and the raw emotion of ‘Fasaim’, the magic is palpable.And listening to Aoife deliver the simple truth of Si Kahn’s ‘What You Do With What You’ve Got’ and the simple understanding of ‘The Wallflower Waltz’ is an experience not to be missed. 

Playing on ‘Carry The Day’ are Aoife Scott (vocals) Eoghan Scott (guitar, dobro, backing vocals) Connor Lyons (bouzouki, 3-string banjo, bodhrán, backing vocals) Michelle O’Brien (fiddle) Andrew meaney (guitar) James Blennerhassett (bass) Floriane Blancke (harp) Eamonn De Bara (piano) Michael Gallen (piano) Cillian Doheny (banjo) peter Browne (accordion) and Frances Black, Mary Black, Roisin O, Martin Black (backing vocals).
