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 had when the Irish born, contemporary Canadian folk artist first performed at Mullum Festival in 2015.

No stranger to these shores, this globetrotting troubadour weaves together humour and heartfelt storytelling with her contemporary take on traditional tunes borrowed from her homeland.
During her travels, she has worked with world-renowned artists like Tom Paxton, The Dubliners and The Pogues as well as 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 IrishMythen(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.
