Áine Tyrrell: Thursday 28 March 2019, 10am-12pm
Áine Tyrrell’s unique musicianship and an equally deft touch with a killer hook or a heartrending lament has attracted the attention of many celebrated musicians in Ireland and Australia including Glen Hansard (Irish songwriter, actor, vocalist and guitarist for Irish group The Frames) who mentored her 2017 EP release ‘Fledgling Fall’. The past two years have been huge for Tyrrell. In addition to her own massive touring schedule, she joined Paul Kelly, Shane Howard and Pauline Scanlon, on the national concert tour Exile, a line-up of outstanding Irish and Australian artists who came together for a celebration of Irish influence in Australia.
