Aoife Nic Canna
Aoife Nic Canna was born in Dublin and raised in Limerick as a young and budding teenager. Growing up on Mallow Street and spending time in the Belltable Arts Centre drinking coffee after school, discussing records and mix tapes is where it all began for her. With a number of residencies behind her, from The Rock Garden, The Kitchen and more notably her eight year residency in Rí- Rá, she has become one of Ireland’s front runners, not only for her fresh and innovative mixture of music, but also for having the ability to see a good opportunity when it arises and capitalizing on it.
With much critical acclaim in the domestic press, she tours Ireland continuously, with regular appearances in such places as Cork, Limerick and Belfast. “I believe that Limerick is a naturally vibrant and musical city because of people’s involvement with and exposure to arts and culture”, she says. “Music has always played a big part in the city and always will, from our clubs, music bars, live gigs, bands, musicians and DJs, making Limerick my favourite place to return to”.
