About the Artist

Keith Harkin From the age of four, Keith has been wowing audiences with his beautiful voice and musical virtuosity. As well as possessing a voice spun from gold, he is also an accomplished songwriter and guitarist. Now 22, Keith has played at the Tavistock Festival in the UK and was the lead in BBC's "Dha Theanga" in 2006 - also composing and recording songs for the show. Keith has shared his talents by opening for acts such as John Martyn and David Kitt in 2007. It was a serendipitous day when Keith returned from London one afternoon (where he is currently recording a solo album) and heard about the auditions for Celtic Thunder, as they were already in progress! He called into the auditions on spec just as they were finishing, auditioned and was very happy to be asked then and there to attend the final auditions in Dublin, and was ultimately selected as one of the five soloists for the Celtic Thunder show.

Ryan Kelly Ryan has been singing since the age of seven in various choirs but most enjoys singing Irish Traditional and Folk Music - and became singing champion at the SCOR competition in March 2007. Ryan, now 29, finished second in the BBC television "Country Cool" competition in 2003, and performed alongside Westlife, Girls Aloud and Simply Red in the televised "Children in Need Live Charity Concert" at the Odyssey in Belfast to an audience of over 8,000. Ryan is actively involved in Amateur Dramatics and has played the lead in "Blood Brothers" and the role of "Judas Iscariot" in "Jesus Christ Superstar."Auditioning for Celtic Thunder and being chosen as one of the five successful vocalists has taken Ryan's passion for Traditional Irish Music to a professional level.

George Donaldson As a self-taught and accomplished musician, George plays guitar, flute, mandolin, bodhran, and banjo. George's love of Celtic music stems from his childhood in Glasgow, where his main influence was his late father Bernard, who had a love and appreciation of all kinds of live music played from the heart. Nothing pleased his father more than seeing George becoming a successful musician and playing at his beloved Celtic Park in front of 65,000 fans at the opening match of the 2000/01 Season. Now at 40 years of age, George is a well-established singer in the vibrant Glasgow and West of Scotland Folk scene. He has recorded folk sessions for BBC Scotland and made appearances at Glasgow's own Celtic Connections and the Glasgow West End Festival. To date, George has toured in America, Canada and Europe, and has developed a fondness for Germany, where he has a great following. He is looking forward to his travels with Celtic Thunder - marking his most exciting musical adventure to date.

Damian McGinty Rounding out the group as the youngest member, Damian was only 14 years old at the time of filming, and is in his third year of middle school in Derry, Northern Ireland. He lives with his parents, and his brother and sister, and when he's not singing he loves playing football. Damian began singing at a young age, winning his first music competition at the age of six. Currently, Damian is in a drama society and the City of Derry Choir. After winning a singing competition in 2006, Damian's public profile was significantly boosted and he made appearances at various concerts: the Millennium Forum for Derry City football team, and for the Red Cross. Damian recorded a solo CD and sent a copy of it to Phil Coulter, who passed it to Sharon Browne. As a result, Damian was invited to audition as a singer for Celtic Thunder. Damian's excitement and enthusiasm for Celtic Thunder is infectious, and after seeing him sing, there was no way he would not be part of this stellar group of young men.

Paul Byrom Dublin born, Paul has been hailed as Ireland's premier young tenor and it is easy to see why. Singled out at an early age as having a special vocal talent, Paul was encouraged to pursue his dream and began voice study and training at the tender age of seven. He studied under Dr Veronica Dunne, Ireland's leading lady of opera and a renowned vocal teacher. A professional singer by his early teens, Paul recorded his first album as a boy soprano when he was 14. He released his album VELVET in Ireland in 2005 to great critical acclaim, placing him firmly at number two in the music charts. Since then, Paul has gone on to sell out concerts at the prestigious National Concert Hall in Dublin in 2006 and again in 2007, while also performing at major sporting events in Ireland and abroad. When the auditions for Celtic Thunder were announced, Phil Coulter contacted Paul and invited him to audition for Sharon Browne, and he was naturally selected as one of the five brilliant members of Celtic Thunder. "I am thrilled to be part of the Celtic Thunder project and to work with Sharon and Phil," says Paul. "We had so much fun making the show, and it is very exciting to think about bringing it to US audiences."

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There is good and bad about this CD - and I'll deal with the "bad" first. Paul Byrom, a/k/a The Swanky Tenor, has left the group to pursue his solo career. I wish him well, and according to Phil Coulter, Celtic Thunder does, too. He's been replaced by Emmet Cahill, whose debut solo, "Kindred Spirits" is on this CD. It was specially written for him by Phil Coulter, who has a number of original songs on "Heritage" as well. Emmet's voice is very different than Paul's, but I think that he'll actually blend better with the other guys. The CD is very different than the DVD - it has only 13 tracks, yet not all its tracks appear on the DVD, so you might want to get them both.

Once again, the guys all have a solo on the CD. Damian reprises his earlier Buachaill on Eirne, "Come from the Hills," this time in Gaelic, but also in what Phil Coulter calls his dark brown voice. Keith shines in "The Dutchman" - be sure to listen closely to the lyrics, they're hauntingly beautiful. Neil Byrne brings "Noreen" to life, proving that while he's a wizard on the guitar and the mandolin, his voice adds so much to the sound that has become Celtic Thunder. Ryan brings a different self to "Black is the Color" - it's quiet and lets you hear his plea; as does Paul's "My Love is Like a Red Red Rose." Students studying English Literature need only listen to these and sing along - a guaranteed A-plus! Still on that rose theme, George adds "Red Rose Cafe".

Everyone knows that these men can sing and can handle themselves as solo artists, but my favorite songs this time are the duets and group numbers. We see pairings of Paul and Damian, Ryan and George, and Keith and Neal, all on music that works well with their particular talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Celtic February 22, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Celtic Thunder returns to doing the more traditional sound you would expect of a Celtic group. There are several duets that are just beautiful. We also get our first look at the new member of the group Emmett, who sings Kindred Spirits. While he might not be Paul he still has a great voice. We get great songs from the entire group and I highly recommend this album and am glad that they decided to do more Celtic songs again.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT!!! February 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Been collecting CT CD's/DVD's since I discovered them a few years ago and have not been disappointed with each & everyone of them. Love their voices and enjoy listening to them sing. What I love the most about this CD is that I really like hearing them sing some of their "traditional" songs and that had saw them in concert, so I was really looking forward to getting this to reminisce & hear them sing these songs over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Over all, worth it :) February 23, 2011
By Emm
Format:Audio CD
I originally pre-ordered both the dvd and cd ( i have all their others) but realized that the cd/dvd was being released the same day that i left for a 2 week vacation! So, i did the logical thing, and went and downloaded the music from amazons mp3 downloader so i could listen to it in the 12 hours of travel i have.

I was delightfully surprised that they included many of my favorite songs that they introduced in this last tour, Such as Neils "Noreen", Ryans "Black is the color" and the whole group singing " A place in the choir." In concert they gave off a much better enthusiastic energy, but then again, that makes sense.
They also included "Kindered Spirits" sang by Emmet Cahill, who i think will soon become my favorite of the bunch.

After the release of "Its Entertainment" I almost fell out of love with this band. I listen to a band called CELTIC thunder, hoping to hear CELTIC music. I am happy to say that this cd restored my faith and i totally recommend the cd, as i am sure i will recommend the dvd as soon as i get it.

Here you go, everyone. This might help eliminate the confusion as to which track is from which particular Celtic Thunder DVD or CD. Note that Heartland and Ireland's Call are repeated a lot because those are more or less the group's big recurring signature songs, so that's cool. But it's odd how other songs get thrown around, too, as you will see below. I hope I didn't make any mistakes. There just a lot here.

I'd like to suggest that those who wish to figure this out better should copy and paste the DVD lists into the left column of a table, and the matching CD lists into the right column of said table. Then you can get an easy-to-read side-by-side comparison. It truly is an amazing mixture, and confusing. Hope you enjoy the list.

The DVDs:

"The Show" DVD (2008):

All of the "The Show" CD cuts are here. The "Act Two" CD is all here except Danny Boy, Heartland (Extended Version), Castles In The Air, and Christmas 1915. However, Danny Boy and Castles In The Air are on the "Take Me Home" DVD, and Christmas 1915 is on the "Christmas" DVD.
