Aoife O’Donovan with Guildhall Session Orchestra

Aoife O'Donovan sits on purple staircase holding guitar

The enchanting singer-songwriter Aoife O'Donovan performs her latest album All My Friends, joined by Guildhall Session Orchestra for a musical event 100 years in the making. 

Inspired by the letters and speeches of suffragist Carrie Chapman Catt, GRAMMY award-winning Aoife O'Donovan returns with her latest album.

All My Friends questions how much has really changed for American women a century after gaining the right to vote. Amidst a lush soundscape of brass, orchestra, girls' choir and her own compelling vocals she explores the nations evolution.

With a diverse range of influences, including folk, bluegrass and indie rock O'Donovan's distinctive sound weaves together intricate melodies and introspective lyrics. Through her soul-stirring music and unwavering passion for storytelling brought beautifully to life through captivating vocals O'Donovan's will enchant you completely. 

Tonight, O’Donovan performs with Guildhall Session Orchestra & the Music Centre London Session Choir, conducted by Eric Jacobsen.

The end time for this concert will be added here closer to the performance dates.
