About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Dublin native and Philadelphia resident, John Byrne’s new record A Shiver in the Sky (2019), shows his band of multi-instrumentalists vibrantly executing ten new originals. Strings, horns and guitars escort Byrne’s vocals through a set of songs about living and pushing forward through negative times. Following up After the Wake (2011), Celtic Folk (2013) and The Immigrant and the Orphan (2015), A Shiver in the Sky focuses on triumph over trauma. Support from radio all over the country pushed the album to #1 on the Roots Radio Report Alternative Folk Chart in January 2020. John’s solo/duo shows weave his own material with Irish and American folk and Americana songs Critics have called his writing “powerful, deeply moving work that will stay with you long after you have heard it” (Sing Out). IN THE PRESS Byrnes songs are rich with the sounds and themes of Irish tradition, one that survives in a modern world full of raw strength an impressive work throughout puts me in mind of an Irish Alejandro Escavedo Sing Out "John Byrne's After The Wake is the sort of album that an artist spends their entire career trying to create....mix splendid story-telling skills, top-notch musicianship, and a grand creative sense... After The Wake is nothing short of a brilliant collection" - Wildy's World One of the few musical artists today who manage to be traditional and modern at the same time. Philadelphia Inquirer Up and coming Trad star hits the sweet spot.. beautifully played.. its Byrnes natural vocal delivery that makes the album stand out from the crowd Hot Press Hes good, period, with material that's edgy yet accessible in a Luka Bloom meets Bob Dylan kind of way. Philadelphia Daily News After the Wake is the perfect combination of Celtic and American folk music. Record-Journal Newspaper For fans of Celtic music, Bob Dylan, Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams and other such lyrically expansive folks. Sun Herald

CelebrationReviewed on September 12, 2021From Smyrna, DE

We hired The John Byrne Band to play at my mom’s wake, and they were wonderful to work with from start to finish! John understood the upbeat tone we we’re going for, played just the right songs, and made the event really special.

Family ReunionReviewed on July 24, 2021From Albrightsville, PA

Again John, Maura and Andy were excellent. Their music and stories were a great part of the warmth and fellowship of "The Last Hurray" at our PA cabin. John was very accommodating with our playlist selections, and added a song /sing-along ("Your Taxi is Waiting" Finbar Furey) for our last party at the cabin. Highly recommend John and company for any occasion. We will certainly look for John and the band when they come to the Cape. 'Out there on the road we'll meet again.' Thanks John, Maura and Andy.

Saint Patrick's Day PartyReviewed on March 13, 2021From Horsham, PA

The John Bryne Band was the perfect fit for our St Patrick's Party! Our venue was outside and although it was chilly the band played for 3 hours, all the Irish hits. Working out the details for the event were handled professionally and John was very accommodating for what we needed. Thanks John and band for a great night!
