Paul Byrom – Kickstarter for PBS Music special

In this video Paul Byrom talks to Pat Kehoe about why he used the Kickstarter Project to ask his fans to help him finance a special concert on the PBS Channel in America.

Major Irish groups like Celtic Thunder and Celtic Woman used PBS concerts to reach a wider audience at the start of their careers.

Byrom, who’s a former member of Celtic Thunder, believes he needs to do the same to achieve the kind of success he wants as a solo artist.

This interview was recorded on October 18 when Byrom was only $2,000 short of his $50,000 Kickstarter project.
