Áine Tyrrell @ Country Witches Association - Startcourt Theatre, Lismore

Country Witches Association - Startcourt Theatre, Lismore, Lismore

It's a time for tired women to pick up their brooms and sweep into a show of wild celebration with the Country Witches: Comedian Mandy Nolan and Singer/Songwriter Aine Tyrrell.

The CWA is the satirical and inspired work of Nolan and Tyrrell who call in a super charged gathering: from the rabble rousers to the tree hugging activists, the wild women, the wise women, the boundary breakers and the menopausal cranky pants. This is a show for women who feel unheard, who are angry, who want to see change. This is a show for women who are going to make trouble.

Mandy Nolan is a stand up comedian who took her passion for change to the polls this year when she stepped into the political arena to push for change. Áine Tyrrell is a singer/songwriter who uses her craft to give voice to the uncomfortable. An Irishwoman who stands strong against the mindset of the colony, she is a passionate ally for First Nation justice, with her own lived experience at the forefront of her truth telling.

On their own Nolan and Tyrrell are a force to be reckoned with, together, they are formidable. Together they are The Country Witches, an unlikely collaboration that speaks deeply to their shared values and the tribe of women who find comfort in their call.

The Nimbin Good Times attended a recent show and their reviewers were impressed.

'While homage was paid to the hardworking CWA ladies, the show was more a call to arms, to empower women, resist objectification, and enhance women's rights. All done with outrageous humour. ...You would have to have been boiled in the cauldron to leave the evening unchanged.'

And now, for one show only, Your Witches are Back at The Star Court Theatre.

With a nod of respect for the actual CWA, the satirical spiritual revival of the Country Witches draws down on telling the stories of our Queens, the women and people who have moved and inspired us.

So warm up your rebel yell. Wear black, and bring your worst self. The Country Witches Association are back by popular demand. Times they are a changing, and the witches...well, they're rising!

WORKSHOPS

Write To Rise - Decolonising Songwriting Workshop

Mullumbimby, NSW

Áine Tyrrell has built her international music career by thinking outside the box and saying it how it is.

In this workshop Áine will help work with you to decolonise from the structures of industry, patriarchy, and colony that keeps us from taking up space in music spaces. Write in defiance of the silencing of your own truths. Songwriting is a powerful way to speak to the hard truths of ancestral pasts and the beauty and hope in the futures. Share some of Áine's processes in how she unveils some of these hidden conversations and rises strong in hope. No matter what level of songwriter, by the end of the workshop she will empower you to write something that needs to come out.

Something that is stuck in your own craw about being a human in a world suffering from the effects of Colonisation.
