John Byrne’s latest release, The Immigrant and the Orphan has been called a “powerful, deeply moving work that will stay with you long after you have heard it” (Sing Out). Together 7-years, the band and its Dublin-born front man continue to push the boundaries of Atl-Folk, American and Celtic music, honoring and expanding upon the musical traditions of both their native and adopted homes. Their popularity has seen them appear on Festival stages nationwide, including the Philadelphia Folk Fest in both 2014 and 2015.
