Aine Duffy is one of the most creative self-starting musicians in Ireland.

She created her Duffbox (a converted Donkey Box) during the pandemic while searching for a way to continue gigging safely.

She also built her own passive home for 12k!

The Duffbox is still on tour, it’s been great fun, to see the people’s faces alone with the happiness and the craic.

Áine Duffy will play for hundreds of children in direct provision centres around Cork in the coming weeks.

The Duffbox Children’s Project is funded by Cork County Council and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.

She is now considering expanding her Duffbox idea by renovating a campervan which can be used by visiting musicians for both accommodation and transport when coming to Ireland to tour.

It also turns out herself and Billie Eilish are closely related and she is trying to find a way to get her family tree book to her!

Follow her many adventures @aineduffymusic
