Product Description

Product Description

Around 45 minutes of Kitty Byron playing unaccompanied timeless classics from the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950. Originally recorded in 2002 and digitally re-mastered in 2012.

About the Artist

Kitty Byron (nee Martin) was born in 1927 in Dundalk, Ireland into a musical household, but nothing would prepare her mother for when, at just 3 years and 5 months, Kitty climbed up and, touching the piano for the first time, played instinctively and untutored with both hands. It was the start of a remarkable gift which spanned over 70 years and brought joy to thousands.

In Ireland she accompanied a host of stars and when her husband, who served in the Royal Air Force, was posted abroad, she travelled extensively and played the piano throughout. From her own BFPO Forces Radio Show entitled Down Memory Lane in 1960s Gibraltar, red carpet events in Manchester and regularly in Mallorca, her appeal and popularity was truly international.

Kitty was a larger than life, vivacious lady with the sunniest of personalities. Her signature tune was the 1930s classic On The Sunny Side of The Street so it is entirely fitting that her debut CD is entitled the same.

The chances are, if you ever heard her play, you won t have forgotten her unique and special brand of magic.For those who have just encountered Kitty, we hope that you enjoy her musical legacy and it brings back some warm memories for you...

I recently bought this CD from Amazon.There are some lovely old songs on it bringing back many memories.my favourite is Secret Love,it was a Doris Day song, I watched the film it was in the Isle of Man when i was just 15 years old! I suspect for many people each song will bring back there own memories and there are some lovely medleys,the music is so relaxing and it certainly takes you back to the good old days.

I bought three copies of this CD to give as Christmas presents and I am so glad that I did. The music brings back many happy memories of times gone by and is also perfect as background music when entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most enjoyable 3 Jan 2013
This disc has a beautful quality of sound. It makes for relaxing listening
and is modestly priced for the enjoyment it brings. Old, familiar melodies played soulfully.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful piano playing 20 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought a copy of this CD without really knowing much about the pianist. The medleys included in the CD are many of my all time favourites and so I took a chance and ordered a copy. Well, it didn't disappoint: beautiful melodies played with such feeling that it really does transport me back to another time every time I listen to it. For those who love piano playing, without the (sometimes) unnecessary orchestra or band in the background, I would highly recommend this CD. It really is lovely.
