Byrne and Kelly - Echoes Tour
Following the release of their latest album Echoes, Irish duo Byrne and Kelly will be making a stop in Seattle on their North American Summer tour. Driven by solid vocal harmonies, the duo seamlessly combines genres like traditional Irish and Americana to create a fresh Celtic folk sound. During a remote weekend writing retreat in County Cavan, Ireland with fellow musicians Nicole Hudson and Peter Sheridan, the seed for the Echoes album was planted. Just over a year later, the result is a 10 track album featuring songs that highlight their rich, Irish culture and experiences traveling the world playing music. Neil Byrne and Ryan Kelly are two of the principal singers in the Irish show Celtic Thunder and have been performing in the show since its inception in 2008. With that, theyve toured the world with the show and still continue to do so. In 2012 the duo performed a series of shows called Acoustic By Candlelight which was the starting point and creation of Byrne and Kelly. In 2013, their first album Acoustically Irish took the Billboard #1 chart position, World Album #1 on iTunes in the United States, Australia, and Canada, Amazon #1 World Album and CDBaby Global Chart #1. Byrne and Kelly were awarded Best Duo in a Concert, Pub or Festival, and Best New Album in 2013 by the Irish Music Association and in 2014 their second album Live in Australia, which was recorded live in Sydney, Australia, reached #1 on Billboard, iTunes, Amazon and CDBaby World music charts."
