A Night of Pogues Covers and Originals
The Irish Center of Kansas City is pleased to welcome The John Byrne Band to Drexel Hall on Thursday, May 31 for a one-of-a-kind-event that celebrates legendary Irish band The Pogues’ with an evening of covers and original songs.
The John Byrne Band is led by former Patrick’s Head front man and Dublin native John Byrne. A prolific singer-songwriter, Byrne expertly blends heart-wrenching, autobiographical lyrics with Irish folk music. Critics and audiences alike have hailed his Bob Dylan-esque songwriting that blends effortlessly with the musical traditions of his native and adopted homelands. He has previously performed in Kansas City at Folk Alliance International and Browne’s Irish Marketplace.
“This event is a must-see for anyone who is a fan of The Pogues,” Executive Director Nancy Wormington said. “Audiences are in for a treat as John not only takes us through the musical legacy of The Pogues, but also graces us with his original blend of Irish and American folk music.”
The John Byrne Band will perform Thursday, May 31 at 7 pm at Drexel Hall. General admission tickets to the show are $15. For more information about The John Byrne Band, please visit: www.johnbyrneband.com
