Series: 1st Saturday Concerts
True power inspires awe, and Irish Mythen packs a lot of it – lyrical, musical, and personal – into a relatively small frame. An Irish-born, Canadian-based contemporary folk artist with a powerful voice and a commanding stage presence, she’s been aptly called a force of nature.
The 2015 East Coast Music Awards winner for roots album of the year, Irish Mythen has played concert halls and major festival stages the world-over and was a breakout sensation at last summer’s Philadelphia Folk Festival, where she wowed the crowd as the closing act. She’s shared stages with a number of musical luminaries and was invited to open for Melissa Etheridge on her 2016 Australia tour.
A highly emotive and charismatic performer, Irish Mythen pours her heart and soul into her songs. A consummate entertainer, she combines powerhouse vocals with edgy humor and heartfelt storytelling. A native of County Wexford, Irish performs traditional Celtic tunes from her homeland and her own anthemic songs in a unique and thoroughly engaging style, filled with passion, intensity and raw energy.
Cheryl Prashker will accompany Irish on percussion.
Irish Mythen is an experience not to be missed. Join the globetrotting troubadour as she makes her New York metro area concert debut.
