Ashley Davis earned her master’s in traditional Irish music at the University of Limerick, and learned how to sing in Gaelic.
Davis will be accompanied by Cormac De Barra, Ireland’s leading harp player and a native Gaelic speaker.
One of my favorite quotes a journalist ever said about me was, ‘If Irish traditional music is ever going to become anything other than a museum piece, it needs people like Ashley Davis,’” she says, citing Sean O'Driscoll of The Irish Times.
“She’s a gorgeous singer. In old Irish we would say: ‘She has a wren in her throat,’” says Colm McCann, winner of the 2009 National Book Award for “Let the Great World Spin.”
