Kier Byrnes & The Kettle Burners / Three Day Threshold / Trampled By Oompah

Kier Byrnes: Good Country, Gone Terribly, Terribly Bad

About: Kier Byrnes, founder of Three Day Threshold and winner of “Best Local Band” from Boston Magazine, has been all over the globe thanks to music; performing in the Middle East for the troops, at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, at a “Johnny Cash” style gig at a Belgian prison and at a private show for Jim Beam Whiskeys in Clermont, KY, where the band was rewarded with a personal tour of the distillery by none other than the great grandson (and Master Distiller) of Jim Beam.  Kier has toured in over 17 different countries. He is currently joined by “The Kettle Burners”,  a high-octane cocktail of chicken pickin’ electric guitar and accordion inspiration.

Kier Byrnes, still plays as “Three Day Threshold” from time to time and many of his current projects appear in (or are linked to) Three Day Threshold related websites.

He also leads the Bavarian/Oktoberfest band, “Trampled by Oompah”.
