Celtic Thunder: A Journey from Dublin to International Acclaim

Celtic Thunder, created by Sharon Browne and Phil Coulter, emerged as the male counterpart to Celtic Woman, with its debut concert at The Helix in Dublin in August 2007. Following the successful formula of Celtic Woman, a CD and DVD were released in March 2008 from the Dublin production, quickly gaining popularity.

The group embarked on tours across North America and consistently released new material, earning the title of Top World Album Artist by Billboard in 2008, 2009, and 2011. Their growing fame led them to open the 2009 Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City. Celtic Thunder’s live performances showcase the members’ talents in solo, group, and duo formats.

One of their remarkable performances is the rendition of “The Sound of Silence” by Colm Keegan and Keith Harkin. Selected for their exceptional vocal abilities, the members of Celtic Thunder impress with their skillful build-up of intensity in this performance, especially with the full orchestra’s involvement. This rendition was part of their ninth TV special, Mythology, recorded at the Helix Theater in Dublin, where Celtic Thunder’s journey began.
