Clonakilty - Cork / Cork County

The Clonakilty International Guitar Festival at DeBarras

CIGF20 Presents Ava Archbold


Ava is a 17 year old Irish artist making alternative music. Growing up surrounded by musicians, she first began writing original music at the age of 14. Her love for singing grew in small, intimate acoustic sessions in the heart of West Cork, Ireland.

She learned the ropes and gained confidence performing alongside her brother, later doing support gigs for the likes of Jack Lukeman and Hudson Taylor. Despite her young age, her songs deal with complex themes – she is particularly interested in writing modern day murder ballads and touching on other dark edges. Ava has now set out on her own journey into the world of recording and releasing music. This gig will also be broadcast live online.

The Clonakilty International Guitar Festival is a celebration of the guitar. It is not starch-collared or stuffy-nosed. From virtuosos to noodlers, all are welcomed and exalted! The festival is run by a not-for-profit voluntary organisation of music lovers and we are very proud of the rich, relaxed, educational, exciting and artistic environment our festival creates in our beautiful seaside town.
