HEADLINING ARTIST: The Byrne Brothers
The Byrne Brothers are a traditional Irish family band from Donegal, moved to Florida in 2018 after receiving their US permanent residency for their “Extraordinary ability in the arts” and have been taking America by storm ever since!
The Byrne Brothers are Luca 15 on Button Accordion, Finn 13 on Banjo, Dempsey 10 on Bodhrán and Tin Whistle with Tommy the dad on Guitar, Uilleann Pipes, Fiddle and Bagpipes and Julie the mammy on sound.
The boys are all County Champions several times on their instruments, Ulster Champion Irish Dancers and the youngest ever Cast Member Entertainers of Walt Disney World Florida after 12 months playing at the famous Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant in Disney Springs.
OPENING ARTIST: Scott Jackson
A dentist, musician, family man and Navy veteran, Scott Jackson has carved out an enviable life playing well with others, but this decade has set the award-winning singer-songwriter on a solo course.
