March 2024

Rising Irish folk star Lorraine Nash is set to touch down on Australian soil for the first time in March 2024 where she will bring her soulful, evocative live show to audiences across Western Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.

Nash has just completed an extensive Irish tour alongside award-winning Australian folk singer Ernest Aines whom she will join forces with once again on the Australian leg of this tour. 

“I’m so excited to have a chance to perform for Australian audiences and see their beautiful country. I’m interested to hear more of Australia’s folk musicians as well as I’m looking forward to hearing many other international artists while I’m there”

Lorraine’s songwriting is a blend of folk and blues customs. Drawing on a background of traditional singing, the multi-instrumentalist incorporates the traditional lilt into her live show, taking inspiration from songwriting legends Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones, Gillian Welch and Laura Marling.

Her debut album All That I Can Be in 2023 was accompanied by sold-out album launch shows and substantial acclaim. Ahead of her tour down under, the County Kerry songwriter follows up with her first single of 2024, “February Snow”.

Speaking of the song Nash says she wrote it following a bad snowstorm in 2018. “It was a way of thinking through climate anxiety as there was so much talk about how no one had seen this kind of weather in Ireland before.” Lorraine cites Ben Howard as an influence in experimenting with guitar tunings that he used on his first album.

“If Neil Young was the master at writing songs that get to the heart of the human condition, the same can be said of Nash’s from-the-heart compositions” – John Meagher, The Irish Independent
