Celtic Tenors

Downloads

The Celtic Tenors were signed on the spot to an international record deal, following an impromptu audition in London in 2000, an event so unprecedented that it soon became the talk of the music industry.

Their eponymously titled debut album went immediately to No 2 in the UK classical charts, only to be held off the top by Russell Watson. It went to No 1 in Ireland and Germany - where it is two times platinum - and won the Echo Award (The German Grammy) for Best Classical Crossover Album in 2002. The boys' full length TV Special Ein Grosse Irischer Abend, (A Great Irish Evening) filmed in front of a capacity crowd in Hamburg, was shown to millions of viewers on Network TV in Germany regularly for over two years. It was then released as a Coast-to-Coast TV Special on PBS, showing on over 260 channels from Hawaii to Alaska and everywhere in between. Overnight, The Celtic Tenors became one of the most successful Classical Crossover acts in 2002, with a top ten Billboard album in the US. Their second album, So Strong, was recorded at Abbey Road Studios and produced by the legendary Mike Moran. The Boys' most recent album, to be released in March 2005, features guests such as Samantha Mumba (You Raise Me Up), Brian Kennedy (We Are Not Islands) and an epic version of All Out of Love, featuring Air Supply, recorded at their private studios in Utah, USA.

The Celtic Tenors were invited to sing for ex-President Bill Clinton during his visit to Dublin Castle, funding-raising for the Northern Ireland Peace Fund. He now says their version of his favourite song, Danny Boy, is the best he has ever heard. They also had the honour of singing in a private audience for Secretary General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan, during a trip to Ireland. The surprise recital was a very personal gift to the couple from U2's Bono.

The Celtic Tenors have appeared on numerous compilation albums, including the Official Rugby World Cup Album 2003, True Coloursand The Official Classical Album for the Olympic Games 2004.  They are the biggest classical crossover artists ever to come out of Ireland.
