About the Show

Aoife’s concerts are comprised of stories, songs, and poetry from her upbringing in Co Tipperary Ireland. She loves interacting with her audience and enjoys sharing stories of her time touring with Cherish the Ladies and her memories of performing with her dad from a very young age in Ireland. Her repertoire ranges from Celtic to Americana along with some old standards which are close to her heart. Aoife accompanies herself and guitar and the Irish drum called a Bodhran!

About the Artist

Aoife Clancy is a Vocalist and Instrumentalist born and raised in Co Tipperary Ireland and grew up in a family steeped in music. Her father, Bobby Clancy, was a member of the group “The Clancy Brothers” who became famous in the States and worldwide performing Irish music in the 1960s.  

Aoife learned how to play the guitar at an early age and by the age of thirteen was performing with her father in folk clubs and festivals around the country. She moved to the States in 1990 and was asked to join the well-renowned Irish American Ensemble “Cherish the Ladies” out of NY City where she performed over 200 dates a year touring the States and Europe. The group went on to record under RCA Victor and were nominated for a Grammy on a live recording with the Boston Pops titled the” Celtic Album” under conductor Keith Lockhart. Aoife has also featured as a soloist with the Boston Pops and other symphonies around the US.

She has recorded many CDs over the years – three solo projects and several with “Cherish the Ladies”. She also performed and recorded with her cousins Robbie O’Connell and Donal Clancy as part of “The Clancy Legacy”. Aoife was one of the founding members of the group  “Jamming Divas” whose members included local Singer/Songwriter Becky Chace.

Aoife now resides in NC and is happy to be back performing in the South Coast of Massachusetts for the summer, where she lived for over 25 years!

Aofie Clancy and Bill Elliot are also currently Celtic ConFusion!
