Co-presented with World Cafe Live

Please note, this performance was originally scheduled for Saturday, October 21 and has been moved to Sunday, December 10.

“A vocalist of unerring instinct,” the Grammy® award-winning Aoife O'Donovan makes her Penn Live Arts debut in a special concert performing the music of Bruce Springsteen’s acoustic triumph, Nebraska, in its entirety. “Saluting Springsteen’s songcraft with clear, pitch-perfect articulation and affable delivery,” O'Donovan pairs this raw, folk album with favorites from her critically acclaimed Age of Apathy, offering “quietly startling songs that are at once intimate and ambitious, autobiographical and metaphysical.” (The New York Times) O’Donovan’s performance will feature an opening set by guitarist Yasmin Williams whose “music transcends the standard idea of what guitarists should do.” (NPR Music)
