The world-renowned supergroup – comprised of vocalists Emmet Cahill, Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, George Donaldson, Neil Byrne and Colm Keegan – continues to astonish audiences, traveling as easily across the genres of folk, traditional Irish, adult contemporary, rock and classical crossover, as they travel the world, performing for an ever-growing number of fans. The band just wrapped a highly successful 67-show American tour, ending in Los Angeles just days after the band found time to squeeze into their schedule a benefit concert and day of outreach in NYC for victims of Hurricane Sandy. The band’s efforts raised over $50,000 for residents of the affected area, Rockaway Beach, NY.
Their latest album, MYTHOLOGY, presents the perfect blend of entertainment, ideology and Gaelic spirituality, providing a modern twist on the old Celtic storytelling tradition. The release of MYTHOLOGY will be backed by a major North American tour, which will travel to 65 cities coast to coast in both Canada and the U.S., including a stop in New Orleans, LA at the Saenger Theatre on November 17, 2013. In addition to the six main vocalists, the tour will also feature strings, guitar, percussion, whistles, pipes, guitars and more in the eight- piece Celtic Thunder band. The tour’s musical director is David Munro, who also plays keyboards in the show.
