The prolific and wildly talented Áine Minogue has been a staple of the Irish and Celtic music scene for many years, completing sixteen solo albums to date. Her music is gorgeous, ethereal, and a perfect match for our intimate venue. Please join us for Áine’s third appearance at the Hall!
Born and raised in Borrisokane, County Tipperary, Ireland, Áine Minogue is an award-winning harpist, singer, arranger and composer who has entertained Presidents and Prime Ministers, as well as traveled extensively to perform at concerts across the United States and around the world.
At the age of 12, while at boarding school in County Galway, Áine discovered her true love – the harp. After completing school, she spent three years developing her incomparable talent as a harpist at Bunratty Castle, one of Ireland’s most treasured landmarks and the perfect setting to accentuate the harp’s emotional and lyrical connections to Irish history.
With over a dozen solo album recordings to her credit, Áine has been nominated for several awards for her work as a record producer. Her recordings include Were You at the Rock, To Warm the Winter’s Night, The Mysts of Time, Between the Worlds, Circle of the Sun, The Twilight Realm, Celtic Meditation Music, Celtic Pilgrimage, Celtic Lamentations, and Close Your Eyes, Love. She also has collaborated on a series of music videos with filmmaker Michael Yip entitled Winter, A Celtic Meditation.
Áine’s music, in varying styles including Celtic, World, Folk, Spiritual and New Age, has appeared on compilations for industry labels such as BMG, Decca, Universal, Virgin Records, Windham Hill and Putumayo. Many of these albums have topped Billboard Magazine’s World, New Age and Classical Charts for months at a time. In addition, she has completed extensive soundtrack work for PBS, NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, and MTV
Áine will be releasing a new album in April 2020, a compilation of O’Carolan compositions featuring Áine’s harp playing with guest musicians will be released on April 24, 2020.
The album is a tribute to the 18th century Irish harper and composer will be a tribute to Turlough O’Carolan who wrote exclusive for Irish harp. Four of the tracks have been newly recorded, eight are compiled from album tracks previously recorded by Áine, and one track “Second Sight” was written as a tribute to the composer who was blinded by smallpox at the age of eighteen.
