Checking out The Aoife Doyle Band

Dolan's, Wednesday April 11, doors 8.30pm

“Doyle’s beautiful, pliable voice makes this one of the finest Irish Jazz albums this year”  – The Sunday Times

LIMERICK Jazz Society presents an opportunity this Wednesday 11th at Dolan’s Upstairs to catch this international start in the making, Ms Aoife Doyle and her more-than-average band. Four of them in all, the singer fronts a gig that promises jazz, folk, country, bluegrass and even the blues.

The above quote from The Sunday Times references their recent album ‘Clouds’ but the Limerick concert will move beyond its tracks to give us a right good night that rounds into various genres. The musicianship is accomplished.

We’re told by Limerick Jazz’s John Daly that “her singing can evoke memories of the sophisticated, velvet tones of Ella Fitzgerald, the earthy, sweet lyricism of Patsy Cline or the straight-up country clarity of Alison Krauss.

“Backed by Johnny Taylor’s subtle piano, Andrew Csibi’s inventive bass and Dominic Mullan’s sensitive percussion, the band has won much deserved critical acclaim.”
