Three Acclaimed Irish Singer/Songwriters, This Friday Evening, 17th June

Aine Tyrrell

THIS FRIDAY EVENING, 17th June, Phillip Island Winery is proud to host three acclaimed Irish Singer/Songwriters – Aine Tyrrell, Roesy and Darren Gallagher – for a great night of intimate music in our cosy cellar door.

As part of their 2016 Tour of Australia, having played at Port Fairy Folk Festival and other key Australian festivals and acoustic music venues, these three fine performers will bring the rustic cosy surrounds of Phillip Ireland winery to life (and provide the perfect accompaniment to a warm fire and a nice red wine).

Each brings their own style, sensibilities and approach to songwriting and storytelling. Wonderful voices, and brilliant Irish style, and with a critically acclaimed first album, launched last year.

We’ll be inside; it’s $20 on the door and the usual Phillip Island Winery fare of fresh food platters, fine wines, beers and softdrinks.

The evening kicks off from 7:00pm, with a support set from Jacqui Sterling. Don’t miss it. (Get some friends together, and book a table.)
