Celtic Thunder

Event Date: 
Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - 7:30pm

Celtic Thunder made its U.S. TV debut on PBS in March 2008 and became the #1 music program. Its self-titled CD from the show debuted at #1 on the Billboard World Music chart in March 2008, and went on to dominate that chart until it was knocked off its perch by the second Celtic Thunder release, Act II, in September.

Fast forward to 2013, Celtic Thunder's new CD is by far its most impressive production to date. All six Celtic Thunder principals feature prominently in Mythology, from haunting solo numbers such as Carrickfergus, The Isle of Inisfree, Scarlet Ribbons, Katie, Carolina Rua  and Now We Are Free to rousing ensembles The Boys are Back in Town, The Star of the County Down and The Rocky Road to Dublin.

There are also great original tracks that were written especially for Mythology, such as the opening number Voices, as well as Hunter's Moon which is  performed in the show by Ryan Kelly. Celtic Thunder also perform a stunning anthem My Land which is the show's powerful finale.
