Celtic Thunder to Bring MYTHOLOGY to Morrison Center, 12/1
World-renowned Irish super-group Celtic Thunder returns to Boise this fall with their new show MYTHOLOGY, coming to the Morrison Center on Sunday December 1, for a performance at 5:00 p.m.
Celtic Thunder continues to astonish audiences, traveling as easily across the genres of folk, traditional Irish, adult contemporary, rock and classical crossover, as they travel the world, performing for an ever-growing number of fans. MYTHOLOGY presents the perfect blend of entertainment, ideology and Gaelic spirituality, providing a modern twist on the Celtic storytelling tradition.
Released in February of this year, the seventh Celtic Thunder CD debuted at #1 on Billboard's World Music Chart and is the group's 5th consecutive release to debut at #1. Both CD and DVD continue to dominate the charts months after release.
All six male vocalists -- Emmet Cahill, Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, George Donaldson, Neil Byrne and Colm Keegan -- perform both solo and ensemble numbers. Twice named Billboard's Top World Music Artist, the group performs an eclectic mix of songs ranging from traditional Irish fare to international hits such as "The Boys are Back in Town" and "The Sound of Silence," as well as original compositions including "Voices" and "Hunter's Moon."
In addition to the six main vocalists, the concert will also feature strings, guitars, percussion, whistles, pipes and more in the eight-piece Celtic Thunder band. The tour's musical director, David Munro, also plays keyboards in the show.
Created by Celtic Thunder Producer ShaRon Browne, MYTHOLOGY bears all the hallmarks of a Celtic Thunder live show: an impressive and imposing stage resembling an ancient stone pathway drawn from Celtic lore and dramatic effects via lighting and choreography. Celtic Thunder's signature brand of emotive and dramatic storytelling through traditional and contemporary music is found throughout the show.
