About Aine Tyrrell…

Aine’s music cradles the spirit of her native homeland, and tips the cap to a notable family history of Irish music tradition. Ache, honesty, and elated melodies, garnishing rhythms which a thousand years of ancestry have slammed foot to floor boards to, in both celebration and protest. Australia’s historical lineage, and love of all things Irish, stands as testament to the accolades and support she is now garnering here in her new homeland, having procured the honour of Queenscliff Music festivals ‘Emerging Talent 2014′ mantle, along with receiving the invaluable and ongoing mentorship from our own revered songstress, Clare Bowditch. Aine’s journey has only just begun as this unique talent continues to infiltrate the hearts and minds of music lovers everywhere. For more information visit
