Born into a theatrical Dublin family, Kyron Bourke worked as a wardrobe man in theatre and film before becoming a full-time musician after signing to Polygram Records. Kyron has acted in theatre, television, and radio, and has written drama for radio. He was actor/manager of his own touring company and owner of Teatro Cabaret Restaurant in Belfast. Kyron regularly sings and plays piano with the band at Bert's Jazz Bar, Belfast.
Kyron played the Big Bad Wolf in Little Red Riding Hood and The Big Bad Wolf in the Lyric Theatre Belfast's 2015 Christmas production and was back there the following year starring in Martin Murphy’s The Gingerbread Mix-up. He toured Ireland in 2018 with the multi-award-winning theatre company Cahoots NI in The Assistant’s Revenge (directed by Paul Bosco McEneaney) playing the role of Sullivan, a small-time piano playing Private Eye. During lockdown in 2020 Kyron collaborated with the poet Eileen T O’Neill whose words communicated the astonishment of the new-found isolation people were experiencing during that time. This collaboration led to the release of an album of songs entitled No Explanation and a short film with songs of the same name which is now doing the rounds of the European Film Festivals. In 2021 he collaborated with Cahoots NI again playing the gluttonous Wolf in Christmas at The Grimm Hotel for which he composed some of the original music. Kyron’s TV credits include Louis McNiece, BBC, The Day Mountbatten Died, BBC, Suzz, UTV, The Lyrics Board, RTE.
Kyron is a painter and has exhibited in galleries throughout Ireland, including the RUA.
