Irish Mythen

Think back to a time in your life when you heard music that was so powerful and beautiful you were instantly engaged. That’s the experience many audiences have on first hearing Irish/Canadian folk artist Irish Mythen—an experience in the joy of everything. Her music is the root of small communities and the strength of a loyal fan base.

Irish Mythen is a true entertainer who is known for her gripping live performances. She is the storyteller who will grab your attention and bring you on an incredible and emotional journey—as well as the comedian with a joie de vivre (exuberant enjoyment of life) who’ll have you laughing from the very beginning until long after she’s left the bandstand.

This 2015 (Canadian) East Coast Music Association winner was born and raised in Wexford County Ireland. Irish Mythen has travelled the globe playing in Europe, Australia, the Middle East and the UK. Home is now Canada’s East Coast (Prince Edward Island).

During her travels she has worked with a host of world-renowned artists like Tom Paxton, The Dubliners and The Pogues. She’s shared stages with Emmylou Harris, Gordon Lightfoot, and Peter Yarrow, to name but a few.

Irish Mythen has proudly produced 2 EPs—Appreciate (2004) and Fallen Me (2006)—as well as 3 full-length releases: Sweet Necessity (2008), Open Here (2011) and Irish Mythen (2014). Open Here was nominated for the 2012 East Coast Music Awards (ECMA) Roots Traditional Recording of the Year. Her latest, self-titled album won her an ECMA in the same category in April 2015.

Scott Cook

Alberta, Canada’s prairie balladeer Scott Cook is a tirelessly traveling DIY songwriter with heart forever on sleeve. Road-worn, painfully honest, and deeply human, his straight-talking tunes weave together folk, roots, blues, soul and country with spacious finger-style guitar and claw-hammer banjo arrangements.

Scott Cook has been making a full-time living from music since 2007, touring extensively across Canada, the US, Europe, Asia and Australia, and is currently on tour in support of his 4th release, One More Time Around. Its opening track, Pass It Along, won the Folk and Acoustic category in the 2013 UK Songwriting Contest, with UK magazine Maverick Country naming him ‘one of Canada’s most inspiring and imaginative storytellers’.
