Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with ÁINE TYRRELL and her band ‘The Midnight Tides’ live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.
+ Special Guests Lime & Steel
Sunday 3rd July 2016, 3:30pm. Doors Open 5pm.
After the last Sold Out launch of ‘METRO SOCIAL’ we are very pleased to present this fabulous artist in the Blue Mountains for her ‘State of (Bus)’ Tour.
From the West Coast of Ireland to a new life on the road in a 1966 Bedford Bus in Australia… Singing her little heart out!
Áine Tyrrell’s music is a contemporary folk collision between the Ireland of generations gone, and the hope of tomorrow. Her songs are as honest as an old friend, warm and inviting, managing somehow to fuse melodies over rhythms which transport you directly into the mid 19th century, to a land hardened by atrocity, which the rest of the world had temporarily forgotten.
She is a singer songwriter with a sound that transcends the convention the title suggests, at times anything from tribal to fragile and heartbreaking and most of all immaculately crafted.
Áine’s music cradles the spirit of her native homeland, and tips the cap to a notable family history of Irish music tradition. It has grown from those traditional Irish roots into a truly contemporary sound. 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 as well as Shane Howard, and in the success of her own extensive tour in support of ‘Queen of Swords’ Áine’s audience has grown, captivated by this unique talent who has infiltrated hearts and minds with her voice, stories and ability to motivate even the most reluctant of audiences into raucous sing-alongs.
“Tyrrell’s irrepressible personality and indefatigable nature pervades Queen of Swords” – Rhythms Magazine Jan 2016
“Tyrrell’s songwriting talent is evident in the crafting of the lyrics in this vigorous, barely tamed LP (Queen of Swords).” – BMA Magazine
“Her voice is unmistakably Irish, in a way few singers are any more.” Irish Echo 2015
“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 2015
“Áine connects deeply with her music…emotionally stirring and uplifting.” National Celtic Festival
Áine will be accompanied by fellow musicians on Uilleann pipes, percussion and upright bass.
+ Special Guests Blue Mountains locals Lime & Steel.
Lime and Steel’s roots-down banjo fiddle grooves, dust kicking hoe-downs and original folk noir convict murder ballads brush on just enough paint to catch the darker side of the Australian soul: All cut with equal parts charm and cheap wine.
