Following the incredible success of Heritage, Celtic Thunder continues to explore their Irish and Celtic roots in VOYAGE. The ensemble performances in this new Public Television special highlight the diversity of Irish music and song.
Premiering on KBTC, Sunday, February 26th at 7pm- VOYAGE is a journey through the varying styles of Celtic and Irish music, from old and traditional standards such as Lagan Love and Maid of Culmore to more contemporary, modern Irish songs, Past The Point of Rescue, Ride On and All Day Long, stopping at lively ensembles Galway Girl and a tribute to the Clancy Brothers in the Clancy Brother Medley along the way.
This is also the first Celtic Thunder show where all of the artists play different instruments. Keith Harkin plays guitar on his original song All Day Long, George and Neil also play guitar on Cat's in the Cradle and Past The Point of Rescue while Ryan and Emmet pick up the tin whistle and fiddle during the ensemble rendition of Galway Girl.
The solo performances are equally wonderful and showcase the musical talent of the 5 soloists (13 year old Daniel Furlong is a guest artist for this recording). VOYAGE depicts the journey of musical development that each soloist has undertaken since the beginning of Celtic Thunder four years ago.
VOYAGE also offers soulful ballads in Scorn Not His Simplicity and Kindred Spirits, and love songs such as the classic Black is the Color and the Maid of Culmore to run the gamut of Irish music.
Voyage also airs Wednesday, February 29th at 7pm and George Donaldson of Celtic Thunder will be in the KBTC studio live on Sunday, March 4th at 7pm.
