Áine’s music has grown from those traditional Irish roots into a truly contemporary sound. Her music is tribal and wild, but also fragile and heartbreaking and most of all immaculately crafted.

2016 is a stellar year for Áine Tyrrell. Áine joined Paul Kelly, Shane Howard, Pauline Scanlon, Declan O’Rourke, John Spillane and her father Seán Tyrrell on the national concert tour for Exile, an exclusive 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 in honour of the Irish exiles.
