Since its inception in August 2007, Celtic Thunder has wowed audiences the world over with their crisp vocal harmonies and powerful ensemble numbers. They bring their Celtic Thunder twist to an eclectic mix of songs while introducing music from their homeland and traversing with ease the genres of folk, traditional Irish, adult contemporary, rock, and classical crossover. Now the global Irish singing sensation presents Legacy, which takes the awesome power of world music and live performance to the next level.
In Legacy, Celtic Thunder blends entertainment and tradition, delivering the best of the group’s much-loved ensemble numbers with selections from their nine tours to date. Legacy sees Celtic Thunder soloists Colm Keegan, Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, Emmett O’Hanlon, and Neil Byrne joined by guest artist Damian McGinty, a former cast mate and original member of Celtic Thunder.
Along with featuring Celtic Thunder’s popular ensemble performances, Legacy also offers a wide variety of solo hits and fan favorites, such as Damian’s “Buachaille On Eirne,” Ryan’s “Ride On,” Keith’s “The Mountains of Mourne,” Neil’s “Noreen,” Emmett’s “Danny Boy,” and contemporary hits “Falling Slowly” and “Black Velvet Band.”
As always, the group is backed by the amazing eight-piece Celtic Thunder Band on strings, guitars, percussion, whistles, pipes, and more, and led by musical director David Munro, who also plays keyboards in the show.
