Photo Coverage: Celtic Thunder's Ryan Kelly Releases Solo CD


Ryan Kelly started singing publically at age seven, taught himself to play the guitar at age thirteen and began writing his own music not long after. He joined a well known local band, and won a place as a finalist in the National BBC Television "Country Cool" competition-where he placed second in the finals. Ryan's performed live with West Life, Girls Aloud and Simply Red in the "Children In Need" televised charity concert at the Odyssey in Belfast, sung the US National Anthem for his beloved Boston Celtics, and has performed for the US President and his family at the White House. 

Ryan is also an accomplished actor-he's played Mickey Johnstone in the musical "Blood Brothers" and Judas Iscariot in "Jesus Christ Superstar". This brought Ryan to a new chapter in his musical journey-recording and touring as one of the stars of the highly successful, platinum and multi-gold selling musical show, "Celtic Thunder". Performing with "Celtic Thunder" has allowed Ryan to showcase both his acting and singing abilities to audiences all across North America .

His new solo CD "Ryan Kelly in Time " is available for purchase on and CDBaby.

As a member of Celtic Thunder, he will be hitting the road in the spring for a tour in the US.  A new PBS Special and CD called Heritage is also available on and members of Celtic Thunder will be on local PBS stations for their March Pledge Drives.
