No stranger to our shores, I brings her huge voice, amazing stories and quick wit back to Australia, taking to the stage in The Brewery at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Friday 6 March. She will be supported by Cass Eager.
Irish Mythen was born in Ireland and now resides in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.
Her latest release, 'Little Bones', gained her recognition around the globe with nominations and wins coming from Music PEI, East Coast Music Association, Folk Alliance International and SOCAN. Write-ups in Australian Guitar Magazine, Rolling Stone, and a plethora of online publications world-wide have helped plant Irish firmly on the map of 'must see artists'.

Named by folk-blog Timber and Steel as ‘Janis Joplin and Ben Harper’s love-child’, Cass Eager’s mix of raw soul, husky blues and light-hearted ditties are all punctuated with her unique whisky-soaked vocals. Internationally renowned but defiantly grassroots, Cass Eager is one of those rare artists that’s mastered everything from the foot-stomping blues to a sensual slow burner.
Cass’ music has taken her to some of the world’s most far-flung places - from CBGB’s in NYC to the beachfront huts of Dili. She’s done several ‘tours of duty’ entertaining Australian troops, from Egypt to East Timor (with Paul Kelly and Peter Garrett), the Middle East to the Solomon Islands. She’s toured through North America and Canada – alone waith her acoustic guitar; alongside Ash Grunwald; and with US musician Bob Egan (Blue Rodeo; ex-Wilco).
