Globetrotting troubadour Irish Mythen is heading to Pocklington

Irish-born contemporary Canadian singer-songwriter Irish Mythen has confirmed that she is heading to Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) this summer.

Irish has performed alongside Rod Stewart and Lucinda Williams, closed out the Philadelphia Folk Festival, performing after the iconic Lyle Lovett, and had thousands in her hands at the 2018 Cambridge Folk Festival.

Now on Wednesday 26 June, Irish will perform live at PAC, fresh from touring Australia, plus several European and US dates.

Janet Farmer, PAC director, said: “A musical and lyrical power house – that is the only way that I can describe the incredible Irish Mythen. I have had the enormous pleasure and privilege of seeing Irish perform live at Manchester Town Hall for the English Folk Expo back in 2017, and at last year’s Cambridge Folk Festival, which just blew me away. Her dominant and dynamic vocal prowess is truly stunning, she is a phenomenal musician and I am just so delighted to be able to bring her timeless and transcendent sound to PAC.”

True power inspires awe, and Irish packs a lot of it – lyrical, musical, and personal – into a relatively small frame. Irish is a globetrotting troubadour who has been amassing accolades and achievements across several continents over the years. Her presence and charisma command attention, and regardless of where she takes to the stage, she delivers a sonic and emotional experience that transcends language and location.
Irish Mythen will perform live at PAC on Wednesday 26 June from 8pm. Tickets, priced at £10 each, go on sale at 10am on Friday 25 January.
