Aoife O’Donovan

TREE PALMEDO
8 pm, Sunday June 15 | $12 advance, $14 day of show.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 

[BARELY BLUEGRASS] Fossils, the debut full-length from Aoife O'Donovan, goes down easy. While O'Donovan cut her teeth with the nimble-fingered newgrass unit Crooked Still, her own album sticks to a mellower strain of folk-rock. Yes, the banjos are still twanging, but they're stirred in with about four other various string instruments, all bathed in reverb and kissed with the occasional steel guitar. O'Donovan hardly needs the glossy production: Her breezy, delicate alto—which has pulled background duties on a host of albums—is a surprisingly powerful force.
