IRISH MYTHEN RETURNS TO AUSTRALIA THIS MARCH

Swamp HouseNews & Reviews

Canadian songwriter and storyteller extraordinaire Irish Mythen has conquered the Australian folk scene over the past two years, with performances that pin you to the back wall with their honesty, wit, and emotional intelligence. Irish is back on our shores this March and April for a 6-week tour that takes in some major festivals, including her second appearance at Bluesfest, and club dates up and down the east coast.

Irish has been gathering awards and accolades left, right, and centre since her last visit – having won SOCAN  “Songwriter of the Year” for the tune ‘Gypsy Dancer’, and was was nominated for “Artist of the Year” at the prestigious International Folk Music Awards, for Folk Alliance International in Kansas City.

Irish Mythen has shared the stage with the likes of Rod Stewart, Richie Havens, Sylvia Tyson, The Dubliners, Shane MacGowen, Gordie Sampson and Matt Andersen. We first caught Irish Mythen on stage live at Bluesfest 2016, where this true force of nature had the Bluesfest audiences spellbound with her energy driven stage presence, powerful vocals, and quick wit, drawing in big crowds to her sets, making plenty of new fans including us. Don’t miss a show near you!
