Aine Tyrell

8pm - 'Wading to The Sea'- Documentary Screening mapping the journey of the recording of Aine's latest Album, 'Return to the Sea'.

9:15pm- Aine Tyrell Live Performance

‘Tyrrell’s incredible journey is one you’d be well advised to follow… A purveyor of elegant yet seductively psychedelic folk songs….’ - Iain Shedden, The Australian

Story is at the forefront for troubadour Áine Tyrrell whose rich songwriting practice draws deeply on her Irish roots. Her latest offering ‘Return to the Sea’ was written and recorded in her homeland but mastered and crowdfunded with one boot in the red dirt of her adopted country of Australia. Fiercely independent Tyrrell is not one to bend to the demands of conventional production arrangements, and so with the help of Creative Arts Victoria, her long time musical producer Mark Stanley, and her international fan base, ‘Return To The Sea’ went rogue, recording in lounge rooms, front bars, old churches, and remote islands.

The full album is a treasure trove of contemporary narratives and musical sojourns with a solid respect for tradition and a passion for adventure and travelling to new lands, both real, and musical.

Return To The Sea’ is something of a homecoming both musically and physically as Tyrrell returned to the places and the people that made her including her father, Seán Tyrrell, one of Ireland’s most revered and enduring folk singers.

‘The ethos behind this album was coming back to find a source,” says Tyrrell “My first album ‘Queen of Swords’ was very personal, a cathartic piece of art to be able to pick up the pieces of my life after a destructive relationship. It became a passage to freedom. ‘Return to The Sea’ is about standing in power, owning your own skin and making sense of the shared responsibility we have as humans. The album embraces stories that have inspired me to do more than just sit and hope for change. It is my call to arms. Many observations between Australia and Ireland are scattered through the tracks, but the one common thread is that together we rise in strength when one human experience can mirror and then shape our collective understanding and action.”

Tyrrell’s own story in itself is the stuff of quiet cinematic inspiration, a powerful example of overcoming adversity. Tyrrell recklessly disregards what is considered impossible and rewrites the book every step of the way. Her passion for justice and integrity has led to her supporting current Women’s Rights and Indigenous Rights issues through performances, social media campaigning, song writing and public speaking engagements.

The last two years have been huge for Tyrrell. In addition to her own massive touring schedule, she joined Paul Kelly, Shane Howard, Pauline Scanlon, Declan O'Rourke, John Spillane and her father 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, creating a rich tapestry of stories, imagery and music. 2016/17 saw Tyrrell perform successful headline tours around Australia, Europe and Ireland as well as performing at Woodford Folk Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Mullum Music Festival, Cygnet Folk Festival, many others and Electric Picnic in Ireland. She has earned the reputation of being an unmissable live act.

This year the Queen of Swords stakes her claim and invites you to share the stories of her journey, and her soundtrack to salvation. Her forthcoming musical offering, ‘Return To The Sea’ is a call to arms, a siren’s wisdoms and warnings, and most importantly the soundtrack of a woman who walks her own beat.

"Soul, intelligence, wit and wisdom, history and mystery and a voice that brings it all together. Don't miss her, for fear that you might miss the very thing you need." - Shane Howard
