IN VOICE The Celtic Tenors, from left: James Nelson, Matthew Gilsenan and Daryl Simpson.
The Celtic Tenors will return to Mayo to perform at Westport Town Hall Theatre on Saturday, September 23, at 8pm. The Celtic Tenors are no strangers to Westport, having performed their first concert at Westport House four years ago.
Whether playing a neighbourhood cathedral or major concert halls in international cities like New York, London or Shanghai, professional and most of all, the trio are renowned for their good-humoured performances and renditions of Celtic songs like the haunting ‘Danny Boy’ and exhilarating classics like Nessum Dorma.
Matthew Gilsenan, James Nelson and Daryl Simpson offer more than beautiful voices and musical knowledge. Comfortable in all genres from classical and folk to Irish and pop, they bring their audience on a real musical voyage.
The Celtic Tenors continue to break new ground by stepping away from their classical roots, and adding a more contemporary edge. With this pioneering approach, they’ve welcomed a wider audience and fostered a fresh and invigorating style which has won them both critical acclaim and so many fans the world over.
From their No 1 chart positions in Ireland and Germany (and No 2 in Australia and the UK and US) to their three platinum-selling albums, their international reputation continues to grow. Across the Atlantic, they have achieved Top Ten spots in both the US Billboard and Canadian Charts.
During their career, the Celtic Tenors have given private performances to world leaders, from Bill Clinton to Kofi Annan and many more in between, the Celtic Tenors are a real worldwide phenomenon. They’ve also shown a remarkable ability to capture the hearts of sports fans in international stadia, from Dubai and Abu Dhabi to Dublin and Glasgow, at opening ceremonies and interval shows.
