P.E.I.'s Ir­ish Mythen ris­ing pop­u­lar­ity leads to a gig with Bri­tish rocker Rod Stewart at the Cavendish Beach Fes­ti­val July

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
