Lorraine Nash

Folk // Lyreacrompane, Kerry // She/Her

Lorraine Nash, noted as “The Future of Irish Folk” by The Irish Independent, graced Australia's prestigious stages and long-running folk festivals, such as Port Fairy Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Folk Festival, and Nannup Music Festival in early 2024 - all this at the age of 25yrs!
Born in County Kerry, the heartland of Irish traditional music, Nash began her musical journey at six years of age, becoming a talented multi-instrumentalist of traditional Irish music – Fiddle, Harp, Tin Whistle, Flute - she incorporates many elements of this into her current recordings, while also drawing from her love of Folk, Country, and Americana.
Citing an array of influences from Emmylou Harris to Gillian Welch, and Lisa Hannigan to Laura Marling, Lorraine remains authentic to her own style and songwriting sensitivity. In the wake of her debut album “All That I Can Be” critic John Meagher said of Lorraine, “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.”
She has shared a bill with some of Ireland's finest, including Mary Black, Liam O’Maonlaí, Jack O' Rourke and David Keenan. She performed on RTÉ TV's “Today Show", Ireland's national broadcaster, with her single “Winter Sun." April 2024, she was invited to perform on a very special primetime music TV show, “Songs of Ireland”, with Mike Hanrahan of Stockton’s Wing.
Summer 2024 she will play Cambridge Folk Festival UK, All Together Now and Electric Picnic in Ireland.
