The Great Irish Songbook
For such a small country, the list of fantastic songs and songwriters to come out of Ireland is quite astonishing. From back to the time of Percy French and Thomas Moore to modern day legends like Van Morrison, Phil Coulter, and U2’s Bono, Ireland continues to churn out one fantastic song after another.
Paul Byrom is the celebrated Irish tenor who initially capture millions of hearts of American theatre-goers and television viewers as an original lead vocalist in the PBS hit show Celtic Thunder. He is now bringing his own show, “The Great Irish Songbook”, to America’s shores. This show is a tribute to the great songwriters to have come from Ireland, combining the songs Paul has grown up singing and listening to, with glorious stories of Ireland and his time growing up in Dublin and the Irish countryside.
Singing classics like The Last Rose Of Summer, The Minstrel Boy and I’ll Take You Home Again Kathleen, and (of course) Danny Boy to modern hits like Have I Told You Lately That I Love You, You Raise Me Up, and Isle of Hope, Isle Of Tears, Paul has created a show for all ages.
In what is sure (and begorra!) to be an evening to remember, you will leave with a glint in your eye thinking of your loved ones and longing for a trip to the Emerald Isle.
The show is performed with Paul with piano accompaniment. Watch Paul perform his glorious renditions of Danny Boy right here:
