The charismatic, globe trotting trio are the most successful classical crossover act to emerge from Ireland. 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. The Celtic Tenors will perform classical arias, a capellas, hauntingly beautiful Celtic harmonies, and popular contemporary songs. With The Celtic Tenors, you will enjoy an evening to savour, with a sparkling good humoured performance. Three unique solo voices, but when called upon – One Tenor Sound!
