Jen Cloher and Áine Tyrrell

Headliner Áine Tyrrell is on her ‘People Like Me and You’ tour, a testament to resilience and hope born out of her own remarkable journey from the West Coast of Ireland to the East Coast of Australia. Escaping a decade of domestic violence with her three children, Áine redefined her narrative from victimhood to triumph to find healing and beauty amidst adversity, forging her own path on these red dust roads in her 1966 Bedford Bus.

Now, her latest single aims to create a community focused on prevention through to recovery, spreading a message of resilience and empowerment. From playing at Splendour In The Grass to standing solo on stage, Áine’s story inspires us to thrive despite hardships, reminding us that if she can, so can we.

Headliner Jen Cloher (Ngāpuhi & Ngāti Kahu) is a songwriter and performer living on unceded Wurundjeri land in Naarm (Melbourne). Cloher’s taut, terse brand of rock is charged with the static tension that comes with being an eternal misfit; they have spoken truth to power with the shrewd eye that only an outsider can possess. Admirers have naturally gravitated towards Cloher’s incisive, generous songwriting. Over the course of five albums, Cloher has won a J Award and an AIR Award and been nominated for an ARIA and the Australian Music Prize.

I Am The River, The River Is Me, Cloher’s fifth album, is verdant and rich; it luxuriates in stillness, and carries itself with cool, unfussy confidence inspired by Cloher’s powerful matrilineal line of wāhine Māori, I Am The River, The River Is Me is not urgent, or hurried, but it is vital, made with the care and ease of someone who knows that their past began before birth, and will continue long after they’re gone.

Catch this show on Saturday from 7pm, at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall.
