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).

No Irish Need Apply

No Irish Need Apply is a Celtic Folk Rock Band consisting ofsix talented musicians from the Philadelphia area. Their eclectic music andwell established harmonies blend traditional and original Celtic folk tunes,jigs, reels and polkas with timeless Americana Classics and a selection ofpopular modern songs.

The band’s title and many song selections reflect thehardships of the early Irish immigrants, as they came to the United Statesseeking employment, equality and even prosperity, only to have their hopes anddreams crushed by hateful employers insisting, “No Irish Need Apply”.
