Collaboration with Aoife O’Donovan











Aoife O’Donovan is a fine human being, an amazing musician, and it should also be mentioned that she is fit as a fiddle, running miles and miles every day, touring schedule be damned.  We’ve all known her for years, and by some happy coincidence our calendars coincided for a week last month, so we got together on the west coast for a few Aoife + Bee Eaters shows in Washington and Oregon… we holed up in our good friend Jeff Hollingsworth’s house for a few days to rehearse the material (much of it from Aoife’s debut solo record) before heading down the coast in the rain.  A soggy and good time was had by all, and we very much hope to collaborate with Aoife again…
