Anne had the classic 'show biz' start to her singing career appearing on stage at the age of three with her Mother and Father in amateur pantomime and musical shows. Her mother's family, the Bradys, hail from Dun Laoghaire in Co. Dublin and were all extremely musical. Her uncle, the famous Willie Brady, who in the nineteen-fifties and sixties had been a recording artist for Avoca Records in the U.S.A. and Ireland. was one of the first Irish artists to revive and popularize the singing of Irish songs and ballads at this time. He was frequently to be heard on Radio Eireann.
Anne's professional singing career began when, at the age of seventeen, she won first prize in the Father Mathew Feis which brought her exceptional singing voice to the attention of a wider audience.
In the early sixties The Abbey Tavern in Howth began to run ballad sessions and before long Anne was to become the leading female singer at this venue.
   Her artistry soon attracted the attention of the newly fledged Irish television station (Telfis Eireann) and she was to become a regular performer on the numerous folk and ballad television programmes Telfis Eireann produced during the sixties and early seventies.
In 1969 Anne travelled to New York with her husband Paddy Roche to take up a residency in the Irish Pavilion on 57th Street and Lexington. From this base she was to travel extensively throughout the USA performing in many prestigious venues.    A highlight of her American sojourn was her performance on the Philladelphia folk festival in 1969 alongside such artists as Richard Thompson, Jim Croce, Doc Watson, and The Fairport Convention.
In early 1971 Anne decided that the rearing of her two year old son Jason took precedence over her American singing career and she returned to Ireland to devote more of her time to family life. She still continued to sing in the major Dublin venues and throughout Ireland and also make many more television appearances. However with the arrival of her second son Oisin in 1973, Anne decided to retire from the professional entertainment world and now lives a very contented existence with her husband Paddy in Dun Loaghaire in Co. Dublin, the beautiful seaside town where she was born.

Hi Anne and Paddy,

We were neighbours of Paddy's many moons ago and I just hope our paths cross again before too long. Listening to the Croppy Boy and some of the other music of Anne and the Ludlows brings back great memories of happy evenings spent at the Embankment - Charles Sinnott

The Ludlows' singer was Margaret O'Brien, another very fine folk performer.

I think (but I'm not sure) that the man in this clip, Oisín Roche, is the son of Anne and Paddy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiDM-51dxVI.

Where have I been since Wolfgang posted that first comment over 17 years ago - on 30/10/2002. I only came across the site last night. Anne Byrne & Jesse Owens and later Anne Byrne & Paddy Roche were some of my favourite performers too away back in the 1960s and 70s.
And Anne became even more of a favourite when I learned that she was a niece of Willie Brady - my first childhood singing hero. I first heard him in the mid 1950s when he was a regular on Din Joe's 'Take the Floor' on Radio Eireann.
I compile Historical stuff from time to time and the following is a listing of some performances by Anne and others in the 1960s and 70s, mostly on RTE TV but also at some venues. It might be of interest to some - I hope it fits on this site,

Best wishes,

Martin Collins

To Martin:

Thank you for taking the time to post the thread of all these Anne Byrne, Jesse Owens and Paddy Roche performances. I have been a huge fan of Anne Byrne for many years and have several of her LPs.
I live in California so never had the chance to see her in any concerts of on any of the TV programs you mentioned. I have heard all the Youtube videos of Anne Byrne solo & some with Paddy or Jesse.

I did want to ask you if any of these programs you have listed are available to hear (other then the ones already on Youtube?)
Do you have copies of all these performances from TV or other venues?

Since I am in USA I don't know how to obtain them other then what is on Youtube. Anne Byrne is my favorite Irish singer!

I actually did find some of her LPs years ago in some record shops in L.A. and others when I traveled to UK in the 1980's.

Years and years ago, on a television broadcast,
Anne Byrne made a guest appearance and sang
"The Patriot Game."
Never heard her before or since.
NEVER forgot her, regardless --
I can still hear the memory of the sound of her voice.

Her website includes some remarks about
how the music business got her down,
issues with copyrights and royalties.
The business has no mercy on sensitive souls.

Lin - I would love to be able to tell you that I have all those broadcasts but, unfortunately, as far as I know they do not exist. The Irish Television service was in its infincy in the 1960s (established on 31st December 1961)so very little of its content was recorded and preserved at that time. As far as I know most of what was recorded and preserved is up on Youtube, including some of Anne Byrne's material. Very few of those programmes which I listed have been preserved. I think Nicholas O Carolan, who produced the 'Come West Along the Road' series for Irish Television, has done a thorough search on all that remains in the Irish Television Archives and he has included all that in his wonderful series of programmes down the years.

I (Anne’s husband and webmaster) will be uploading a selection of Anne’s recordings in digital format over the next few weeks. The quality of the digitized versions are not of a professional standard but are good enough for you to enjoy some lovely ballads.
You can download them from Anne’s site at
http://annebyrne.com/downloads.php
Please let me know what you think.

Remember it will take me a while to upload them all to the website.
