Áine Tyrrell - Irish Troubadour

Áine Tyrrell - Irish Troubadour

Friday, 23 July 2021, 4.00pm

Irish Troubadour explores Áine Tyrrell’s journey as she plays Woodford Festival just north of Brisbane with her new band over New Years 2019/2020.

The documentary combines two storylines. The narrative arc is provided by Áine’s journey to Woodford Festival and the accompanying colour and excitement of Australia’s biggest and craziest folk festival.

Intercut with this narrative arc is a character based bio-pic of Áine Tyrrell looking at her journey to escape domestic violence. In coming to Australia, Áine was attempting to save a relationship with a violent partner. After much heart-searching Áine has decided to talk publicly about the experience where her Australian dream became a nightmare. When she was at her lowest ebb, Áine bought a 1966 Bedford bus and took her 3 young children on the road. Áine’s goal is to be a working artiste and a mother to her children. She is passionate about passing on her Irish language and culture to her family and equally passionate to respect and absorb the Aboriginal heritage of her adopted land.

Includes Q+A with Áine Tyrrell and director Dr. Enda Murray.

Available from 23 July @ 4:00 PM - 25 July @11:45 PM.
