    In 2007, producer Sharon Browne embarked on an innovative project by filming the inaugural Celtic Thunder show at the Helix in Dublin, Ireland. The concept behind this groundbreaking endeavor was to assemble a group of talented men from Ireland and Scotland, spanning ages from 21 to 42, and curate a performance that celebrated their shared Celtic heritage.

    The resulting show presented a captivating blend of musical genres, ranging from traditional Celtic tunes to international chart-toppers, interwoven with original compositions. The current lineup of Celtic Thunder comprises a diverse ensemble of performers, including Damian McGinty, Emmet Cahill, Neil Byrne, and Ronan Scolard.

    Each member of Celtic Thunder is a formidable talent, both in solo and ensemble performances. Supported by the dynamic Celtic Thunder Band, their live shows are renowned for their dramatic lighting effects, intricate choreography, and a stage set reminiscent of ancient Celtic pathways, evoking the legends of Celtic lore.

    The Celtic Thunder ODYSSEY live theatrical production embodies the essence of these public television stars. It serves as a captivating exploration of Irish music and culture, spanning traditional Irish rhythms, contemporary beats, and innovative arrangements that define the group’s distinctive sound. The show’s strength lies in the shared musical chemistry of Celtic Thunder’s lead vocalists, each contributing their unique voice and charisma to create a harmonious blend that resonates with a wide range of musical preferences.
