When you put together three brilliant Tenor voices with natural Irish charm, singing spine-tingling Classical, Folk, Irish, Gaelic and Pop favourites in stacked three-part harmonies, then mix them up with quick witted banter, you have THE CELTIC TENORS.
The charismatic, globe-trotting trio are the most successful classical crossover artists ever to have come out of Ireland are returning to Australia in May 2019.
They just sing songs they love, and they most certainly don’t take themselves too seriously. It’s all about the music, the harmonies and the fun.
Three unique solo voices, but when called upon – one tenor sound!
While each of The Celtic Tenors have been influenced by the musical traditions from their own individual parts of Ireland, Daryl Simpson, James Nelson and Matthew Gilsenan show great flexibility in melding their voices to suit the appropriate genres.
The Celtic Tenors will also perform The Irish Songbook on their 2019 Australian tour with such classics as Finnegan’s Wake, In The Gloaming, Song For Ireland, Danny Boy, The Dutchman, Caledonia, You Raise Me Up and many more favourites.
With a polished international reputation and over a million album sales world-wide, The Celtic Tenors offer something truly unique. The skill, range and ability of world-class tenors combined with the personality and fun of genuine Irish performers.
