“Irish Americana, by turns rollicking and resonating”
—Boston Globe
Pat Byrne

COVID-19 FAQ

Pat Byrne migrated from Ireland to Austin, Texas in late 2017. Since then, he has melded two musical cultures known for introspective lyricism and raw, from-the-heart emotion—with spectacular results. “The raspy melodic soul of Byrne’s voice recalls the emotional spells the late Austin troubadour Jimmy LaFave used to cast, though Byrne’s songwriting bears a more distinctive Irish stamp.” Pat’s 2022 single “Only a Man” featured musicians from Emmylou Harris’s band, and his new “Until It Isn’t” features production from Bruce Robison and his band, making palpable the working musician’s struggle and uncertainty, underpinned by a nostalgic arrangement of strings and harmonium. Says the Austin American-Statesman: “The raspy melodic soul of Byrne’s voice recalls the emotional spells the late Austin troubadour Jimmy LaFave used to cast, though Byrne’s songwriting bears a more distinctive Irish stamp.”

This program is made possible with support from the Ford Motor Company Fund. It is presented live, and also livestreamed on The Ark’s Facebook page.
