King & Byrne
King & Byrne is an accomplished acoustic duo that perform a unique blend of Spanish/Flamenco style arrangements of well known tunes, their own original songs, together with a sprinkling of well chosen covers.
The evening runs from 5pm through to 10pm with every act performing a ten minute set each hour, so whatever time you pop into the Music Room during Light Night if you stay for 60 minutes you're guaranteed to catch them all!
In the spirit of this year's LightNight theme Transformation, the acts will be including a number of familiar songs they've transformed by placing their own musical stamp on them. There may also be the odd collaboration or two along the way.
