“By vote, the three most requested artists to return to Mariposa Folk Festival have been 1) Joni 2) Gordon, and 3) Irish Mythen” - Mike Hill, AD Mariposa Folk Festival
After a sold-out show in 2017, Canmore Folk Festival favorite Irish Mythen returns to artsPlace with her one-of-a-kind performance that will leave you by turns in stitches, riled up, amazed and moved to tears.
True power inspires awe, and Irish Mythen packs a lot of it – lyrical, musical, and personal – into a relatively small frame. Mythen is a globetrotting troubadour – an Irishborn, contemporary Canadian folk artist who’s been amassing accolades and achievements across several continents. Regardless of where she takes the stage, Irish delivers a sonic and emotional experience that transcends language and location; that reaches the very core of what connects us. It’s an experience that has earned her spots performing alongside Rod Stewart, Gordon Lightfoot and Lucinda Williams, and billings on major festival stages, as well as the 2015 East Coast Music Association Roots Album of the Year Award.
