Debra had always wanted to sing the songs of JD Souther, James Taylor, John Hiatt and many more singer songwriters. So when Gary Van Egmond an Australian promoter who was touring The Highwaymen asked whether she would be the support act for The Highwaymen, Debra jump at the opportunity.
“One of the highlights of my career was to be the support act for The Highwaymen. It was an extraordinary experience and it reignited a dream that I could perform the songs closest to my heart. I had been performing in musical theatre and though I loved the chance to bring characters to life through song, the lack of freedom to change was always a challenge for me.” – Debra Byrne
Now after an amazing career as the leading lady of stage, television and film, Debra once again fulfils this dream.
In an intimate and up-close performance with Dion Hirini, who has worked with Debra for close to twenty years they sing the songs they love.
“Dion is a wonderfully gifted singer, musician and a person I enjoy being with on and off the stage. We like to tell a story through song and I love to bring my theatrical experience to each moment. We perform the songs we adore, not all of the same genre but mindful that we keep a flow that compliments each song. I hope you will enjoy the experience as much as we do.” – Debra Byrne
An intimate and up-close performance with Debra Byrne & Dion Hirini speaks for itself. It is an unforgettable opportunity to experience one of our great balladeers with one of Melbourne’s finest musicians, performing a selection of songs that have beauty and soul. Not to be missed!
