Neil Byrne

Neil Byrne (age 36), though involved with Celtic Thunder since its inception, has not always been at the front of the stage. A native of Wicklow, Ireland, Neil has been chasing the dream of professional musicianship since childhood. Neil was originally asked to record on Celtic Thunder's original products as a background vocalist and later hired to play guitar in the band, where he performed for the first few years.

In 2009, Neil began performing the occasional solo with Celtic Thunder and was finally invited to be a full-time principal in 2011. He is a talented guitarist in his own right, and lends the sweetness of his voice to tender ballads.

Neil released the initial EP "Sensitive Souls" in 2010, followed by the "Faces" album in 2011 under the name Pale Blue Jak, along with a duo album with Ryan Kelly, "Acoustically Irish," in 2013.
