Photo Coverage: Paul Byrom Kicks Off His U.S. Tour with a Return to Rory Dolan's

One of Ireland's premier tenors, Paul Byrom, performed at Rory Dolan's on Thursday, March 1st, as part of his 13-city "10 Years On" tour, celebrating the more than 10 years that he has been entertaining in the United States and other locations beyond his native Ireland. Check out photos below!

Fans remember him as one of the original members of the world-renowned all-male singing group Celtic Thunder, which he joined in 2007. During his time with them, the group had six #1 World Billboard albums and appeared in several television specials on PBS stations throughout the country. Since leaving the group in 2010, he has had a highly successful solo career, with his first post-Celtic Thunder recording "This is the Moment" also debuting at #1 on the World Billboard Chart.

He began his official classical training in his hometown of Dublin when he was just seven years old. By the time he was 14, he had recorded his first album, "The Golden Voice", and subsequent recordings landed on Irish and Billboard charts. Byrom comes from a musical background. His mother is a concert pianist and his father played guitar as a hobby. As a result, he grew up listening to both classical and mainstream music, ranging from Mozart to Buddy Holly to the Eagles, and this wide variance in genre and style influences his song choices to this day.

He has performed for dignitaries such as Emperor Akihito of Japan, former Irish Presidents Mary McAleese and Mary Robinson, as well as U.S. President Barack Obamaand Speaker of the House John Boehner. But, he always enjoys performing for North American audiences who range in age from teens to grandmothers in their 80s, who appreciate his classical voice, sense of humor, showmanship and ease with any musical genre.

His performance at Rory Dolan's will feature songs to touch the heart and uplift the soul, and he'll share humorous stories of his musical career as well as tidbits of his personal life. The concert is a blend of many song types, including Irish, show, and classical - something for everyone. Because the tour occurs in the month of St. Patrick's Day, he will be sure to include several Irish favorites to celebrate the lead-up to March 17. He still lives in Dublin, in a small seaside area called Blackrock. While he enjoys traveling to share his musical talents with concertgoers, he declares himself a proud Irishman who likes to "fly the flag" when he is away from home. Deep inside, he will always be "Dublin through and through."
