Aoife O'Donovan

  • Hayti Heritage Center 804 Old Fayetteville Street Durham, NC, 27701 United States (map)

In the quiet moments found between touring her first solo album and collaborating with mainstay folk and bluegrass peers, Aoife O’Donovan found the inspiration to write her sophomore album “In the Magic Hour”. Flight and loneliness are enduring themes throughout “In the Magic Hour,” which takes much of its inspiration from O’Donovan’s itinerant lifestyle. But she finds herself reaching, again and again, for something more substantial. The songs on “In the Magic Hour” are like specks of dust floating in the tall arches of a cathedral, privy to the endless rituals of life and death and stirred occasionally by the flutter of pigeon wings. Graceful and light, they search, softly, for a place to rest. 

Aoife O'Donovan (with Stuart Duncan, Heather Masse, Rich Dworsky, and Chris Siebold) sings "Magic Hour" on A Prairie Home Companion on May 7, 2016.
