Join us for an incredible performance by The Celtic Tenors on the eve of Saint Patrick’s Day. Get in the mood of the holiday with Ireland’s most successful crossover artists. These three have charm, wit, and emotion to spare, taking the audience on personal journey. Breaking the mold of traditional tenors (by mastering the art form) these fellas boast a repertoire of classical, pop, and irish songs. Some say that The Celtic Tenors do for Irish music what Riverdance did for Irish dance. Come hear why!

The Celtic Tenors

The Celtic Tenors have established themselves as the most successful classical crossover artists ever to emerge from Ireland. In 2000, following an impromptu audition at EMI in London, the Celtic Tenors were signed on the spot to an international record deal, a highly unusual event that was the talk of the music industry.

The Celtic Tenors continue to re-invent the whole tenor idiom by pioneering a new style of cool never before seen on the classical stage and by breaking the traditional stuffy tenor mold. This album was recorded by a grammy award winning team in the Hollywood Hills. Hard Times moves from the mold of traditional tenor album to recording the works of great North American songwriters from Stephen Foster to Bob Dylan.

While each of The Celtic Tenors have been influenced by the musical traditions from their own individual parts of Ireland, Daryl, James and Matthew show great flexibility in melding their voices to suit the appropriate classical, folk, Irish and pop genres. The Echo Award in Germany for Classical without Boundaries was presented to The Celtic Tenors in recognition of this fact.

With total album sales worldwide, including compilations, of over one million, and a full international touring schedule, the Celtic Tenors have topped the charts in the USA, Canada, Germany, the UK and Ireland.

The Celtic Tenors live show is an experience overflowing with vitality and variety from start to finish. The unique voices, charm and wit of Daryl, James and Matthew, combined with talented young Musical Director Colm Henry, combine an emotive journey with a thoroughly uplifting experience. Equally at home performing to large festival crowds or intimate concert halls and theatres, and whether backed by a live band, symphony orchestra, solo piano, or even acapella, their voices and personalities always shine through alongside their undeniable celtic charm.


“The finest version of ‘Danny Boy’ I have ever heard.” –President Bill Clinton

“Three separately and distinctive classically-trained tenors, who when they come together they are a superbly flawless unit. They combine the high standards of operatic singing with a delightfully informal sense of fun.” –The Irish Examiner

“This ensemble is world-class.” –De Gelderlander, Netherlands
