THE IRISH SONGBOOK - NATIONAL AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2019
When you put together three brilliant Tenor voices with natural Irish charm, singing spine-tingling Classical, Folk, Irish, Gaelic and Pop favourites in stacked three-part harmonies, then mix them up with quick witted banter, you have the CELTIC TENORS.
It’s all about the music, the harmonies and the fun. Three unique solo voices, but when called upon – one tenor sound! The Celtic Tenors will perform The Irish Songbook on their Australian tour with such classics as Finnegan’s Wake, In The Gloaming, Song For Ireland, Danny Boy, The Dutchman, Caledonia, you Raise Me Up and many more favourites.
With a polished international reputation and just over a million album sales world-wide, the Celtic Tenors offer something truly unique. The skill, range and ability of world-class tenors combined with the personality and fun of genuine Irish performers.
Much loved Irish troubadour Luka Bloom is a master of the concert stage.
His incredibly gifted electro-acoustic guitar playing guarantees an impassioned live performance of his original, poetic and melodic songs.
Luka’s concert arsenal includes both tender and dynamic original material and a surprisingly eclectic selection of other people’s work.
Over the years Bloom has brought his inspiring lyrics and sumptuous melodies to clubs, theatres, festivals, bars and arenas all over the world, but he has a special place in his heart for Australian audiences and has earned a devoted following in this country.
Sharon Shannon is a name synonymous and entrenched in the culture and fabric of Traditional Irish Music. Sharon’s journey with her accordion and love for music has led her to become one of the world’s most highly acclaimed traditional musicians, and her personality has led her to be one of Ireland’s most well-liked and popular national treasures.

A native of Kincasslagh, Co. Donegal, Daniel's concert appearances have taken him from London's Royal Albert Hall and Dublin's Point Depot to New York's Carnegie Hall and Sydney's Opera House, but he still continues to set himself fresh ambitions and new worlds to conquer.
