The Byrne Brothers, a family band from Dublin who now live in Orlando, will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 22 at the Buffalo Irish Center, 245 Abbott Road, Buffalo.
The Bryne Brothers are County Champions on their traditional Irish instruments, as well as Duo and Trio Champions and Ulster Champion Irish Dancers. Their dad Tommy backs them on guitar and also plays Uilleann pipes, fiddle whistles and bagpipes.
In 2016, a video of them playing on the street at the Fleadh went viral with 3.4 million views!
While at home in 2017, the Byrne Brothers had another three viral videos, two on the streets of Galway and another from Oliver St. John Gogarty’s Irish Pub the night before they left Ireland.
Last summer they toured all the way up to Washington, plus the Cleveland Irish Cultural Festival, Chicago Irish American Heritage Center, Kansas City Irish Center, Colorado Rocky Mountain Irish Gathering, and all over New York, New Jersey and Virginia Beach. In September 2018 they performed at Raglan Road Irish Hooley Festival and were flown home to Ireland to perform at Ireland’s biggest VIP wedding of the year in Adare Manor.
In October they toured Houston, Dallas, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, San Francisco and more. To date they have visited 40 states.
“Our plan is to travel the world with our music and dancing and hopefully inspire other kids,” said the Byrne Brothers.
