Lyndon M. Griffin

The banquet will be followed by an evening of Irish music provided by Lyndon Griffin.

Mr. Griffin began singing Irish ballads professionally in 1991. However, his musical roots reach back to his boyhood growing up in Minnesota where he would ride the family horse farm while singing old Irish favorites like "Wild Colonial Boy" or the "Ballad of Henry Joy McCracken." He has written nearly fifty historical ballads about Americana history – mostly western.

However, he found that the old songs were always deep inside and once the spicket was opened, they kept pouring out.Making Irish culture and history come alive in story and song is his great joy.

In "real life," Lyndon owns a training business that trains business people in the science of public speaking; relations with the media and hostile press; the techniques for winning a job interview; and a spin-off teaching corporate human relations departments how to interview employee prospects.


Lyndon sings all year long, however goes down the Irish road in a serious way in March--making 24 shows this March. He specializes in concert, private party and coffee house delivery venues. If you are interest in Mr. Griffin for your venue, please contact him at:
