John Byrne Band

The Music Hall at World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA

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).
