Friday, April 01, 2016

International megastars Celtic Thunder bring Legacy, a brand new show that celebrates the influence of Irish and Celtic music around the world, to the Sandler Center on Sept. 11 at 7 p.m.

 Legacy is a live show featuring a mix of lively, fast-paced and upbeat songs that represent the fun-loving nature of the Irish, including “A Place in the Choir,” Galway Girl” and “Raggle Taggle Gypsy,” and slower classic ballads like “Danny Boy,” “Noreen” and “Buachaille On Eirne” that portray a more nostalgic and romantic side.

 

Continuing their tradition of paying homage to the musical culture and traditions of Ireland, Celtic Thunder’s latest show is a depiction of both their musical footprint over the past eight years as well as their amazing heritage of Irish and Celtic music.

 

Both the ensemble and solo performances in this thrilling evening of entertainment highlight the diversity of Irish music and song. Powerful anthems like “Ireland’s Call and Caledonia,” heartwarming ballads like “Song for the Mira” and “Take Me Home,” and lively crowd favorites such as “Seven Drunken Nights” showcase the musical talent of each soloist.

 

Formed in Dublin in 2007, Celtic Thunder is a multi-dimensional musical and theatrical ensemble celebrated around the world for emotionally powerful performances and state-of-the-art production. Billboard magazine named Celtic Thunder the Top World Album Artist in 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2015, and the group has placed in the World Album Top 10 every year since 2008.

 

Celtic Thunder features five male vocalists backed by the amazing eight-piece Celtic Thunder band, ensuring that Celtic Thunder Legacy has something special to offer to everyone. 

 

Tickets go on sale Monday, April 4, at 10 a.m.
