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...
