Music runs deep through Kian Byrne’s veins. In fact, his father, Ian Byrne, born in Avoca, a small town located in County Wicklow Ireland, has been a professional musician for more than 30 years. Kian’s father continued his love of music in his new home in Kansas City, and eventually started a band called “The Elders.” Later, Kian became the drummer of The Elders, which blended Kian’s roots with a combination of Americana and Celtic folk-rock. Kansas City’s music scene is very familiar with Kian’s sound, and he is frequently spotted on stages throughout the city. He also has traveled to Ireland as a solo artist and played around the island at several venues. He is a skilled multi-instrumentalist, steeped in Irish-musical traditions that he inherited from his father. In addition to playing drums for The Elders, Kian has also played with a number of other Kansas City bands, including Cotton Candy, Searson, The Moxie Strings and The Grisly Hand. Today, he can also be seen playing bass with The New Riddim and on drums with Hi-Lux.
