Women of Note in association with TradFest Temple Bar is curated and presented by Aoife Scott. A celebration of Women of Note featuring artists that come from diverse backgrounds and culture while highlighting the rich talent of Irish trad and folk performers with their international counterparts who use their voice and song to carry tradition, a cause, or in support of a belief that is reflected in their songs, repertoire, and careers. Scott will be joined on the night by one of Ireland’s greatest jazz and blues singers Mary Coughlan, North Carolina musical powerhouse Charly Lowry, and musician, academic and TG4 broadcaster Doireann Ní Ghlacáin, and more for what will be a memorable night of song.
Following on from the success of Women of Note in 2022, which saw the legendary Peggy Seeger and powerhouse performer Wallis Bird in a celebration of Women in folk, Aoife Scott will curate and present the next Women of Note Concert at St Patrick’s Cathedral Tradfest Temple Bar Dublin on the 25th Jan 2023.
‘The Women of Note concert was a treat to the ears – beautiful singing by female voices imbued with an air of feminism. The grand St. Patrick’s Cathedral was literally and metaphorically lit up by their music. It was indeed a night of breaking barriers, for women through music.’ Irish Music Magazine 2022
