Saturday 29th January 2022
Liberty Hall, Dublin
Following Grammy-winning artist Aoife O’ Donovan brand-new single ‘Transatlantic’, she has announced a Dublin show for 2022. Performing at The Liberty Hall Theatre, Dublin on Saturday, 29th January 2022.
The video for "Transatlantic," commissioned by IAC for Grásta, will also be shared with IAC audiences on Tuesday as part of this early debut.
Aoife speaks about the record, “I started writing ‘Transatlantic’ many years ago—after one of my frequent trips across the pond. The lyric started as a classic love song, but when I dusted it off to complete it for this project with Irish Arts Center, it became something different. I felt strangely moved by the nostalgia and longing for camaraderie, innocently described by my pre-pandemic self. As I finished the tune in January of this year—feeling certain of nothing but the uncertainty of these times—I immediately began to hear the voice of Kris Drever, a friend based in Glasgow. Kris enlisted his trio mates Euan Burton and Louis Abbott to be the rhythm section, and layered the recording with the inimitable strings of Jeremy Kittel. The refrain references the old classic Loch Lomond, a ‘song from another time.’
"Raise a glass. We will be together again.”
