Ailie Robertson is the 2019 LiveIreland Female Musician of the Year. The harpist has been so wonderful for so long, it is almost easy to take her for granted. We don’t. She is extremely talented, has exquisite musical taste, a perfect ear for what “sounds right”, and that is why she is a reference point in the changing scene of traditional Irish music. The group she is in is the well known and loved, Outside Track. Their new album is Rise Up and is featured regularly already here on LI. Highly in demand as a studio musician, composer, and arranger, she is a multi-level force in the music. She is frequently featured on the Bill & Imelda Show on Sundays at 18:00 here. Imelda has proclaimed herself as President of the Ailie Fan Club, and a listen to a typical show will confirm that in triplicate. Here we feature Ailie’s, Swerving for Bunnies–another Imeldic fav. Ailie is truly exceptional, and that is why she is our Female Musician of the Year!
