The Irish-Canadian singer-songwriter has built a loyal, local fan base since she first blew the roof off the Aussie folk festival scene back in 2015, making her debut at Woodford Folk Festival.
"I love the connection with the Aussie crowd: they're so accepting of new music and they tell you how it is, so they're always the benchmark for me. The Aussie audience is going to tell you if the stuff is good or not."
With her huge voice, scathing wit and sense of humour, Irish's 2020 Australian tour takes in the east coast as well as stopovers in Hobart and Launceston.

It’s amazing to be one of the caretakers of an organisation that means so much to so many people. I am constantly thinking about community, colour and how to showcase the best of LGBTQIA+ artists across many events within the festival and there is really something for everyone.Read more:
