Aoife O'Donovan

When: Sat., July 9, 8 p.m. 2016

Aoife O’Donovan has been largely classified as a folk artist, thanks to her work in roots ensembles like Crooked Still and Sometymes Why. O’Donovan’s first solo LP, 2013’s Fossils, was a fine, moderate effort, but her new In the Magic Hour is stunning. Building from a rootsy foundation, O’Donovan outdoes herself in magnificent fashion. There are tangled, off-kilter guitar riffs and hair-raising violin parts on the boldly vulnerable “King of All Birds,” while jazz percussion frames the tender and gorgeous “Magpie.” Her appearance at Hayti should be a magic hour indeed. —Allison Hussey
