Irish Mythen

Irish Mythen – Kuranda Understage

Canadian troubadour Irish Mythen has made a huge impression on Australian audiences over the past 12 months – she’s brought the house down at festivals such as Mullumbimbi, Small Halls, Illawarra, Woodford, Bluesfest in Byron Bay (where organisers were so struck by her that they named one of the resident koala after her). She’s opened for Melissa Etheridge at sold out shows around the country and is steadily getting noticed for her huge voice, comic timing, emotive songwriting, and a virtuosic storytelling style that has seen grown men cry into their beers two songs in.

So it’s with great pleasure that Irish jumps on the plane once more this September and heads to Australia for an East-coast tour to visit old friends and make many more along the way. Irish will play Kuranda Amphitheatre understate this Sunday.

This 2015 (Canadian) East Coast Music Association winner was born and raised in Wexford County Ireland, Irish Mythen has travelled the globe playing in Europe, Australia, the Middle East and the UK. Home is now Canada’s East Coast (Prince Edward Island).

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.

Since her immigration to Canada in 2008 Irish has been honored to create music and memories with Gordie Sampson, Joel Plaskett, Ron Hynes, Matt Andersen, Bruce Guthro and Dave Gunning. She has become an admired and respected artist on the Canadian scene.

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.

Irish is a true entertainer who is known for her gripping live shows. 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 the end of her show.

Irish Mythen plays Kuranda Amphitheatre this Sunday 16th of October 2016 4pm – 8pm. Tickets available HERE
