Irish Mythen’s music is so powerful and beautiful you can’t help being instantly engaged.

Irish is a true entertainer who is known for her gripping live shows which are a thing of wild emotion as she pours heart and soul into every word she sings. She has a way of delivering her songs that leave you in awe of her vocal talent and remembering the show, the songs and the performer long after you’ve walked away.

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 was born in Ireland and now resides in Charlottetown Prince Edward Island Canada.

“This Island creates music and musicians, art and artists. I found a shift to take things more seriously when I moved here.” And she did just that.

Embarking on her fifth tour down under, the inimitable Irish is well and truly making her mark on the country’s folk scene performing more than 100 gripping shows that have major festivals and venues inviting her back time and again.

The perfect example of a contemporary folk troubadour, Mythen is renowned for holding a crowd, be it 50 or 50,000 people, right in the palm of her hand with just a guitar, her monumental voice, refreshingly subversive lyrics and wicked wit in tow.

“Up there on the stage, I’m in my element,” said Irish.

“In the true spirit of the 60s folk movement, I’ll whack you with home truths about politics, religion and civil rights and the entertainer in me will have you crying with laughter while I do it!”

Born in Ireland, Irish has spent her life on the road, picking up her first guitar in the Middle East at 15 when her parents thought she needed something constructive to do while they travelled.

“We were always surrounded by music but no one in my family had ever played an instrument or sang; so when my folks gave me that guitar, let’s just say we were all very surprised at how quickly it became clear this was my life’s calling.”

And the rest, as they say, is history.

“Aussies are my kind of people,” said Irish, who is set to make her second and third Woodford and Bluesfest appearances respectively.

“You have a wicked sense of humour and aren’t afraid to call shit out - I have to say I’m glad you finally sorted out marriage equality.

“We always have a laugh together. I can’t wait to escape the Canadian winter and see you all on the road this summer.”

Irish Mythen’s 22-date tour kicks off at Woodford Folk Festival on December 28 and continues well into the new year for the Illawarra and Cygnet Folk Festivals, as well as the National Folk Festival and Bluesfest in the months to follow.

So, hold onto your hats Australia, because Irish Mythen’s foot-stomping, soul-shaking shows are sure to leave you not only exhilarated, but searching through her calendar for the next show as she “leaves it all up there on the stage for ya.”

“I had no idea what to expect when this five foot nothing lady took the stage, all smiles and twinkling eyes and guitar. Then, she opened her mouth and out flew a voice that came straight from the Heavens with all the power and the glory and the truth of someone destined to be a singer. I’ve been blessed with seeing and hearing a lot of talented musicians in my life, but I have never experienced anyone quite like Irish Mythen. She is a force of nature and a gift from Almighty Herself.” – Lisa Schwartz, Philadelphia Folk Festival

“I was amazed at your ability to hold such a massive crowd as if it were a tiny one.” – Dougie MacLean, Artist

“By vote, the three most requested artists to return to Mariposa Folk Festival have been 1) Joni 2) Gordon, and 3) Irish Mythen” – Mike Hill, AD Mariposa Folk Festival
