Celtic Thunder has amazing vocal harmonics and their ensemble productions are out of this world. Their performance for me was moving and emotional, so being able to listen to their music at home is wonderful. The style of music is traditional Irish and folk music to adult contemporary, rock and classical crossover.
It’s amazing to think that the group was formed in Dublin in 2007. Now they have Legacy which is the latest production on DVD, Blu-ray, CD and vinyl. So no matter how you enjoy music, there is something for you. The show is produced by Sharon Browne while the album is produced by David Murano.
Legacy is a compilation of loved numbers from Celtic Thunder’s nine standing-room only world tours. Songs include include “Heartland,” the group’s big opening number, along with crowd-pleasing favorites like “Raggle Taggle Gypsy,” “Galway Girl,” and “A Place in the Choir” alongside rousing anthems “Caledonia” and “Ireland’s Call.”
Celtic Thunder will be taking Legacy on the road in 2016 with a full North American Tour which will run from August-December. They will stop in 75 cities across 40 states including New York, Massachusetts, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Florida, Texas, California and Washington to name but a few.
Celtic Thunder’s official YouTube channel, “Thunder Tube” has seen over 28 million-upload views since the channel’s inception in 2008. That’s pretty impressive!
My kids absolutely fell in love with the song “A Place in the Choir”. They will literally blare this song all day throughout the house. I have never really been a huge music fan but I have listened to the Celtic Thunder Legacy album multiple times and love it more every time. Their music both moves me at times and soothes me in others. Sometimes that’s just what you need after a long and stressful day.
