St. Patrick's Day in Houston

St. Patrick’s Day is approaching, a day when those who are Irish celebrate the patron saint of Ireland and those who aren’t technically Irish express their appreciation for all things Irish. Green is worn, green beer is had (for those 21+, of course) and sometimes you get pinched. If you're looking for a place to celebrate, you're in luck! Houston has something Irish themed to suit every taste.

What began as Celtic Thunder's Neil Byrne and Ryan Kelly performing a series of shows together called 'Acoustic By Candlelight' back in 2012 has turned into what is now known as Byrne and Kelly.  Driven by dynamic vocal harmonies, the duo seamlessly combines genres like traditional Irish and Americana to create a fresh, Celtic folk sound that has garnered comparisons to iconic folk-rock duos like Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers.
