Reviews of Silvery Moon

“Whether she’s delivering an ancient Irish ballad, an American folk classic, or an urgent contemporary song, Aoife sings with the same gorgeous naturalism as if she were experiencing the emotions in the songs for the first time.”

—Scott Alarik, Boston Globe

“Clancy’s distinctive mezzo and clarity of phrasing make an immediate impression as she explores the restrained emotions of the music”

—Kerry Dexter, Dirty Linen Magazine

Silvery Moon CD cover art

“I think Silvery Moon is Clancy’s best CD. Her singing is always understated and straight-forward, which is very appealing. It’s a direct honest style that reflects her personality. When you meet her she is just who she is and wears that right out front. And she’s the same way when she sings”

—Brian O’Donovan, “Celtic Sojourn,”

“There is Hope” by cousin Robbie O’Connell with soft violin guitar and flute are perfect for the gentleness of Aoife’s clear delivery”

Sing Out!

“To a sparse piano, Clancy tenderly sings a sweetly affecting melody to Henry Lawson’s poem of loneliness, love and parting in “Slip and the Spur.” In Ron Kabana’s song of peace and healing “Reconciliation,” Clancy’s lilting voice guides an anthemic chorus drawn from her Irish heritage”

—Kerry Dexter, Dirty Linen Magazine
