Irish was born in Ireland and now resides in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.
“This Island creates music and musicians, art and artists. I found a shift to take things more seriously when I moved here.” And she did just that.
Her latest release, Little Bones, gained her recognition around the globe, including a 2020 JUNO nomination for Contemporary Roots Album of the Year, seven Music PEI 2020 nominations, including Album of the Year, Entertainer of the Year, and SOCAN Songwriter of the Year, and a Canadian Folk Music Nomination for Solo Artist of the Year.
Her previous self-titled album, Irish Mythen, garnered awards and nominations from Music PEI, East Coast Music Association, Folk Alliance International and SOCAN.
Irish’s live performances are a thing of raw power, emotion and a connection with her audience that just has to be seen to be believed.
