Irish Mythen has performed at Tønder Festival several times, and toured Denmark, winning audience appreciation for her powerful singing, her fine songs and her intense performance. Originally from Ireland, Irish Mythen has been based in Canada for many years now. The date of her arrival in Canada is tattooed on her arm to show how she feels about her new homeland. Irish Mythen tours extensively in Canada, USA, Europe and not least in Australia. Irish Mythen’s voice ranges from the silken to the rusty metallic, backed by her guitar-playing, which has been described as rustic and rhythmic. She has won prizes and nominations for both her live perfomance and her recordings. Her 2014 album Irish Mythen was crowned Roots Album of the Year by the East Canadian Music Association (ECMA). Her album Little Bones from the autumn of 2019 won three awards in Canada, among them Solo Artist of The Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards 2020, and a series of nominations at the Music PEI Awards and Juno Awards. One critic described Irish Mythen with the words, “She is a force of nature sent from above.” Irish Mythen will perform solo at Tønder Festival.
