The Monterey Pop Festival was an iconic 3 day festival held in June 1967 in California. The lineup was a who’s who of pop, rock, and folk stars including The Mamas & the Papas, the Byrds, Simon and Garfunkel, the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin and so many more. Irish Mythen, Brielle Ansems and special guest Natalie Williams Calhoun will present their own interpretations of some of the music that helped shape the generation.
Irish Mythen was born in Ireland and now resides in Charlottetown. “This Island creates music and musicians, art and artists. I found a shift to take things more seriously when I moved here.” And she did just that. Her latest release, Little Bones, gained her recognition around the globe, including a 2020 JUNO nomination for Contemporary Roots Album of the Year, seven Music PEI 2020 nominations and two wins — Touring Artist of the Year and Roots Contemporary Recording of the Year, and a Canadian Folk Music Nomination for Solo Artist of the Year. Her previous self-titled album garnered awards and nominations from Music PEI, East Coast Music Association, Folk Alliance International and SOCAN. Write-ups in Australian Guitar Magazine, Rolling Stone and a plethora of other print and online media worldwide, have helped plant Irish firmly on the map of “Must-See Artists”.
Brielle Ansems, born in Hamilton, Ontario and raised in Montague, PEI, has grown up with music on her lips and a creativity fostered by Prince Edward Island’s artistic community. A recent graduate of Holland College School of Performing Arts Theatre Performance program, her lyric-focused music fuses folk sensibilities with pop and R&B influences to create an emotionally charged, poetic experience for her audiences.
Natalie Williams Calhoun is an accomplished concert cellist, an educator and 1/5 of the well know string ensemble Atlantic String Machine. She has toured across Canada and internationally. Since moving to PEI, she has supported countless artists on stage and in the studio both as a solo artist and with ASM. She has recorded on dozens of albums and worked with a wide range of artists including Rachel Beck, Dylan Menzie, KINLEY, Irish Mythen and many more.
