In 2017 Performers, News and Updates by Sydney Barron

Winner of the ECMA’s 2015 Roots Album of the Year, Irish Mythen is a globetrotting troubadour – an Irish-born, contemporary Canadian folk artist who’s been amassing accolades and achievements across several continents over the years.

In just the last 12 months, Irish has closed out the Philadelphia Folk Festival, performing after the iconic Lyle Lovett, and had tens of thousands in her hands at Australia’s Woodford Folk Festival. On the back of the latter performance, she was even handpicked to open for Melissa Etheridge’s 2016 Australian run. Mythen will be a perfect ROOTS&BLUES fit, playing not only her concert but on workshops with ROOTS&BLUES strong Celtic line-up.
