Winner of two Irish Music Awards (Meteor award), Wallis Bird's expressive vocals and driving guitar rhythms have been taking audiences by storm in the UK, Europe, Australia and Japan. Every performance is characterised by a startling passion and presentness that frequently leaves Bird breathless and her guitar strings shredded. Her raw honesty, rascal humour, generosity of heart and extraordinary energy will leave you spellbound.

After a whirlwind tour in Oz at the start of 2017, Bird returns in Nov/Dec to perform at Mullum Music Festival plus east coast shows.
Don't miss this incredible artist.
