P.E.I.'s Irish Mythen rising popularity leads to a gig with British rocker Rod Stewart at the Cavendish Beach Festival July
P.E.I.'s Irish Mythen is a popular P.E.I. artist known for her powerhouse voice and positive stage presence.
And she's enjoying one of most successful years of her performance life.
"It's the first time in my career that I've felt like I've had a real career and I'm not just knocking on the door all the time," says the Charlottetown-based singer-songwriter.
Starting with an official showcase at the 2015 Folk Alliance in Kansas City in February, her good fortune followed her to the East Coast Music Awards in St. John's in April, where she picked up the award for traditional solo recording of the year.
Mythen's lucky streak continued when she received three nominations for Music PEI awards for her self-titled CD and gave performances at the Credit Union May Run Festival in Charlottetown in May.
As her good fortune continues, it's not something she takes for granted.
P.E.I.'s Irish Mythen will open for the mega rock star, Rod Stewart, on July 9 at the Cavendish Music Festival.
