Irish has closed out the Philadelphia Folk Festival, performing after the iconic Lyle Lovett, and had tens of thousands in her hands at Australia’s Woodford Folk Festival. On the back of the latter performance, she was handpicked to open for Melissa Etheridge’s 2016 Australian run. Her self titled album earned an East Coast Music Award in 2015 for Roots Album of the Year. Her live show finds Irish combining her contemporary and catchy anthems with traditional tunes borrowed from her Irish homeland. All are woven together with a signature blend of edgy humour and heartfelt storytelling while her presence and performance magnetically draw eyes and ears towards the small-statured powerhouse on stage. Her presence and charisma simply command attention, and regardless of where she takes the stage, she delivers a sonic and emotional experience that transcends language and location; that reaches the very core of what connects us.

Buffalo Street, Cori’s fourth CD is a collection of stories inspired by the rich history of the Canadian Rockies. It was named one of the Fab Five albums of 2009 by CKUA’s David Ward. The song My Familiar Sky, won third place in the Calgary Folk Festival Songwriting Contest Songs of Alberta category. Four Horses, Cori’s fifth studio project, gallops across the prairies and into deep political and environmental meditations, invoking lost landscapes and lost lives not just to memorialize, but to provoke and honour.
