Neil Byrne and Ryan Kelly are bringing their “Acoustic by Candlelight” show on tour during January and February 2014!

Ryan Kelly from the Moy, County Tyrone and Neil Byrne from Bray, County Wicklow have been performing their live show together called “Acoustic by Candlelight” for two years and have sold out four previous tours. You can expect Neil and Ryan to perform a mix of songs from their solo albums, some Celtic Thunder favourites, and songs from their album “Acoustically Irish” that went straight to #1 on Billboard’s World Albums Chart upon release.

Currently both men are leading members of Celtic Thunder, the Irish and Scottish music group and have just completed a successful 67 date tour of North America. In the recent past, they have performed in many prestigious venues such as Radio City Music Hall New York, sang for the US President and his family in the White House and entertained the Troops in The Pentagon to name but a few.
