In 2006, when USA Today predicted that Aoife O’Donovan would soon become “the newest darling of the Americana set,” it had already been true for quite some time. Called “a vocalist of unerring instinct” by the New York Times, Aoife is one of the most sought after singers in the roots music field. Her work as the lead singer and co-founder of stringband Crooked Still put her on the map in 2001, and she has collaborated with a variety of musicians across genres since.
A founding member of British rock band The Kinks, guitarist Dave Davies was an integral part of the quartet who helped shape the sound of rock with hits like “All Day and All of the Night,” “Lola,” and “You Really Got Me,” the latter of which features his iconic guitar riff to kick off the song.
Named one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,” Davies massive guitar sounds have inspired bands from Van Halen to Green Day.
