Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Cygnet Folk Festival presents: Áine Tyrrell

ainaThe Cygnet Folk Festival have recently been presenting and promoting some extra events in Tasmania. This month, we are thrilled to welcome back Áine Tyrrell to our shores! Áine was one of our much-loved performers from January 2017 and returns to Tasmania with her, “Fledgling Fall” tour launching her new EP. The title track 'Don’t be Left Crying' recently achieved number one on the Irish national broadcaster RTE.e.

Tyrrell straddles that divide between the old and the new. Between being Irish and Australian, and between being the girl who plays tin whistle with her musician dad at the kitchen table and the woman who’s front and centre with her full band at festivals around the country. It’s this place in between that makes what she has so unique.
