Australia’s favourite adopted Irish sister, Áine Tyrrell is coming home to Ireland to launch her new album, Return To The Sea. She is bringing home Ireland’s soon-to-be favourite adopted Australian sister, Emily Wurramara who is touring her award winning debut Album Milyakburra.
A unique and stunning double bill of powerful and inspiring performers. These women have shared bills and festivals across Australia together already. They are passionate women of the sea from their homes to their music. They both sing and speak from the heart singing anthems for humanity and social justice as well as writing songs that speak to your heart.
ÁINE TYRRELL is a modern day Pirate Queen, except instead of ships, she captures audiences, one heart at a time. Her latest offering Return to the Sea is alive with contemporary narratives rising from a solid respect for tradition. Critics worldwide are lauding Tyrrell as a force of nature and this album is full of anthems for humanity. Return To The Sea is a call to arms, a sirens wisdoms and warnings, and most importantly the soundtrack of a woman who walks her own beat.

Brisbane based EMILY WURRAMARA is originally from Groote Eylandt in the Northern Territory. Growing up Emily loved hearing her uncles sing, but also realised that women from her community rarely sang in public. Wanting to inspire and empower members of her community, especially young Indigenous women, to find their voice, Emily sings original music both in English and Anindilyakwa.
