Playhouse patrons will have the chance to enjoy the vocal harmonies of The Celtic Tenors in a special holiday concert on Saturday, November 27 at 8pm. Having established themselves as the most successful classical crossover artists ever to emerge from Ireland, they continue to re-invent the whole tenor idiom by pioneering a new style of ‘cool’ never before seen on the classical stage, and by breaking the traditional stuffy tenor mould.
While each of The Celtic Tenors have been influenced by the musical traditions from their own individual parts of Ireland, Daryl, James and Matthew show great flexibility in melding their voices to suit the appropriate classical, folk, Irish and pop genres. Their fifth album was released in 2009, and featured a collection of songs from North America by songwriters such as Stephen Foster and Bob Dylan. Essentially a roots album with rich harmony driven songs, The Celtic Tenors were privileged to work with the Grammy-winning team of Steve Lindsey, Dillon O’Brien and Dave Way.
The unique voices, charm and wit of Daryl, James and Matthew, combined with their talented young Musical Director Colm Rogan, create an emotive journey with a thoroughly uplifting experience. Embrace the true meaning of Christmas this year, along with their undeniable Celtic charm, in an evening that will be overflowing with vitality and variety from start to finish.
Tickets for The Celtic Tenors’ November 27 performance are available at the Fredericton Playhouse box office 1-866-884-5800, or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
