On the Forecourt

This Event is:


Think back to a time in your life when you heard music that was so powerful and beautiful you were instantly engaged. That’s the experience many audiences have on first hearing Irish/Canadian folk artist Irish Mythen - an experience in the joy of everything. Her music is the root of small communities and the strength of a loyal fan base.

No stranger to these shores, Irish is a true entertainer who is known for her gripping live performances. 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.

Experience this mesmerising performance at Homeground 2017.

Presented by the Sydney Opera House.


For thousands of years, the land that Sydney Opera House is built on was a gathering place for the Gadigal people who danced and sang here.

Homeground continues the rich history of this site, formerly known as Tubowgule, by bringing the very best First Nations artists from around the world to the Opera House Forecourt for two free days of music, dance, workshops and markets.

Celebrate the power of contemporary artists and ancient customs under the sun and stars at Homeground 2017.
