    “What began as Celtic Thunder’s Neil Byrne and Ryan Kelly performing a series of shows together called ‘Acoustic By Candlelight’ a few years ago has turned into what is now known as Byrne and Kelly.  Driven by vocal harmonies, the duo seamlessly dives into combining genres like traditional Irish and Americana to create a fresh, folk sound.    In 2013 Byrne and Kelly was awarded ‘Best Duo in a Concert, Pub or Festival’ and ‘Best New Album’ for Acoustically Irish by the Irish Music Association.  In addition, Acoustically Irish took the Bilboard #1 position, World Album #1 on iTunes in the United States, Australia and Canada, Amazon World Album #1 and cdbaby Global Chart #1.

    The duo’s second album release, Live in Australia, was recorded live at The Vanguard in Sydney, Australia in June of 2014.  Following the release later in the year, Live in Australia quickly became the  #1 World album on Billboard, iTunes, Amazon and cdbaby.
