Kian Byrne was playing music before he could form complete sentences. Originally a fiddle player at the age of 3, Byrne discovered his dad's drum set and couldn't stop experimenting with various sounds, isntruments and styles. Byrne also grew up at KC Irish Fest - busking on festival grounds - until someone would notice. Since then, he's honed skills within multiple genres and instruments - from classical violin in the Youth Symphony to reggae to Celtic Rock as a drummer and multi instrumentalist of The Elders. Byrne is now releasing a new self-debut album "Up & Down" which highlights his songwriting and instrumentation. Joining Byrne on the KC Irish Fest stage will be many familiar faces.
Byrne's single "Sing That Song" is being featured on NPR stations nationwide. Hear this track and others from Byrne's self-debut album "Up & Down" on Spotify, Amazon and all digital platforms today
