Think back to a time in your life when you heard music that was so powerful and beautiful you were instantly engaged. That’s the experience many audiences have on first hearing Irish/Canadian folk artist Irish Mythen - an experience in the joy of everything. Her music is the root of small communities and the strength of a loyal fan base.
No stranger to these shores, Irish is a true entertainer who is known for her gripping live performances. She is the storyteller who will grasp your attention and who will bring you on an incredible and emotional journey - as well as the comedian with a joie de vivre who’ll have you laughing from the very beginning until long after she’s left the bandstand.
During her travels she has worked with a host of world-renowned artists like Tom Paxton, The Dubliners and The Pogues. She shared stages with Emmylou Harris, Gordon Lightfoot, and Peter Yarrow, to name but a few.
Irish has proudly produced two EPs — Appreciate (2004) and Fallen Me (2006), as well as three full-length releases to her name — Sweet Necessity (2008), Open Here (2011) and Irish Mythen (2014). Open Here was nominated for the 2012 East Coast Music Awards (ECMA) Roots Traditional Recording of the Year. Her latest, self-titled album won her an ECMA in the same category in April 2015.
