Twin Bill – Irish Mythen & Amythyst Kiah

Friday, February 16, 2018 @ 7:30 pm

Come hear two of the hottest and up-and-coming performers in today's acoustic music world -
"Kiah is an important and innovative presence in contemporary traditional music. Describing herself as a "Southern Gothic, alt-country blues singer/songwriter," Amythyst has a repertoire that honors tradition while crossing genres to illuminate many common threads." ~ Sam Gleaves, The Bluegrass Situation

"I had no idea what to expect when this five foot nothing lady took the stage, all smiles and twinkling eyes and guitar. Then, she opened her mouth and out flew a voice that came straight from the Heavens with all the power and the glory and the truth of someone destined to be a singer. I've been blessed with seeing and hearing a lot of talented musicians in my life, but I have never experienced anyone quite like Irish Mythen. She is a force of nature and a gift from Almighty Herself."
~ Lisa Schwartz, Philadelphia Folk Festival
