Born: Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Tipperary, Ireland
Aoife made occasional appearances with her father, Bobby Clancy, brother Finbarr Clancy and Eddie Dillon as "The Clancys". In addition to touring with her own band (including Matt & Shannon Heaton), Aoife currently tours as part of the Clancy Legacy with cousins Robbie O'Connell and Dónal Clancy.
Aoife Clancy (pronounced "Eefa") brings a refreshing new voice to folk music, one that ranges from traditional Irish songs to ballads and contemporary folk. Aoife comes from the small town of Carrick-on-Suir, in Co Tipperary, Ireland, where her musical career began at an early age. Her father Bobby Clancy of the legendary Clancy Brothers, placed a guitar in her hands at age ten, and by age fourteen was playing with her father in nearby pubs.
In 1995 Aoife was asked to join the acclaimed group "Cherish the Ladies", which is one of the most sought-after Irish American groups in history. For the past four years Aoife has toured extensively doing no less than two hundred dates a year throughout the United States and Europe. She has been a featured soloist with orchestras such as the Boston Pops and Cincinnati Pops and, while performing with Cherish the Ladies, collaborated with the Boston Pops on their Grammy nominated Celtic album.
