OK, the last few days have been a roller coaster for me - honestly!
I find this fantastic group and enjoy their Музыка immensely. I've played Ты Tube all день and still want more! Then, we visiting their website to find out if they intend to visit us in the UK (London, Norwich, Birmingham etc), I find George died tragically last year, I'm in tears - what a man and singer he was - so sad now. But the website still doesn't answer my Вопрос - When will Celtic Thunder come to Britain please?
Over a год назад Sharon stated she was working on it but nothing since, why are we waiting I ask?
Have the group Остаться в живых their сердце when they Остаться в живых George? Do they sing with the same ol' Irish heart? Have they taken on soooo many new songs, that the old Celtish Музыка is being pushed aside. I do hope not.
The best of their Музыка lifted my сердце and made me sing, when no other has done before. Please. Someone. Answer me!

Well, the 12th of dec. is celtic thunder's last концерт date, then they all head home. Just in time for the Рождество holidays! i'm counting down the days til they can finally get back Главная to their famlies and friends. this is after close to 3 months, they have been away from Главная before, but i think this has been the longest so far! now that paul is leaving after the last show, it just won't ever be the same without this man and his beautiful voice and funny sence of humor! paul just can't ever be replaced with another tenor. Ты ct. fans, if your lucky enough to attend one of their future concerts, sure all their concerts are awsome, but won't really be the same without our paul! thats why i wish they would have released 'Storm' when paul was still with ct.! i wish him nothing but the best ever and i know he'll go even farther than he has so far! to all the lads, thanks for your fantastic music, your awsome talent, and wonderful concerts. May God Bless! ps. until Далее year, cheer's, to Ты all! [ Happy Christmas, to Ты and ours!].

It was dark outside, the moonlight glistening off the thick foliage and Цветы around the outside of Keith’s home. Ryan parked up in the already filled driveway, and popped up the хобот, ствол so he and Keith could grab the luggage. “We’re here, Chlo!” Both Keith and Ryan screamed out with joy simultaneously. Keith opened Chloe’s car door for her, helping her get out. “Thanks, fellas, for that exciting statement of obviousness.” They chuckled, “No problem, Chlo,” Keith nudged her, “ Just making sure you’re not overwhelmed yet by Ireland.” “Me, overwhelmed by Ireland?! HA! No way at all, Keith! Ты of all people should know THAT!” The trio walked up to the front door, and Keith banged on it as loud as he could because someone had the stereo’s volume up quite loudly. No one answered, so Keith decided to yell, “Hey! Are y’all gonna let us in или not? I don’t think this will be a very good first impression on Chloe!” “Oh, hush up you,” Chloe punched his Keith’s arm, “don’t make them feel bad for going a little crazy with the music.” Keith rolled his eyes, sticking out his tongue at her. “Um, Keith,” Ryan tapped on Keith’s...

Sorry I took so long to post this part! Been kinda busy lately. Hope Ты enjoy! Thankies for reading!
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Two weeks flew by very quickly, and excitement stirred within Keith and Chloe. They spent time looking for houses for Chloe, packing Chloe’s ornaments and pictures, moving out the furniture, and, of course, spent time with each other in the parks, beaches, and even outdoor malls. Chloe was so happy that she grew so much closer to Keith during the two weeks she had left in LA, and Keith was happy he had Chloe all to himself for those two weeks. Both wished they could share their feelings for each other еще and еще each day, but they both quieted those thoughts for fear of rejection, and also, in Chloe’s case, fear of heartbreak. She trusted Keith completely, but she still had a hard time letting go of past situations and memories. Finally, the день came for them to head out to Ireland. “Do Ты have everything, Chlo?” “Um, let me double-check, Keith. Actually, I’ll triple-check, because Ты asked me the same Вопрос ten минуты назад silly!” She punched Keith lightly on the arm, and checked all her...

“Wow, Keith, this пляж, пляжный is stunning. I can see why your dad chose here to buy a timeshare.” “You like it?” Keith looked back at her, grinning uncontrollably. “How could I NOT like it? It’s the prettiest пляж, пляжный I’ve ever seen in Cali.” “Yeah, I Любовь it a whole lot. The waves are perfect for us surfers, too.” He gazed out at the horizon, taking in the view and sound of it all. Chloe was looking around for the пляж, пляжный house, but couldn’t find it. “Um, Keith? Where exactly is the пляж, пляжный house?” Keith looked at her with a mischievous gaze in his eye. “That’s one of the big surprises.” “Right.” Chloe laughed and gave him a little shove. “So, is it invisible или something.” “Aw, fine.” He gave up his attempt to hide his reason of untying the small rowboat. “See that small island out there?” He pointed to a small island covered with thick foliage. “Yeah…is that where…?” “Mmhmmm, surprise!” They laughed in unison and loaded up their stuff into the boat. While rowing across the crystal blue water, they pointed out рыба and talked about Celtic Thunder...

Thanks y'all bunches for reading. Here's еще :]
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
It was one of the groggiest and restless nights of her life, and Chloe was not happy it ended, because the new день just meant new time to mourn internally throughout the entire day. Admittedly though, she was a bit anxious to see cheery and jovial Keith once again. Somehow, being around such a good friend made her сердце feel intact and whole, despite the way it was when she wasn’t around him. She got dressed and prepped herself for the day, then tiptoed out of her room to see whether или not Keith was still asleep. Sure enough, sprawled out on the диван, мягкий уголок and snoring, he was still sound asleep. Chloe tried her best not to wake him as she walked by the living room to the kitchen. “Good morning, little lassie!” Chloe spun around to face Keith in shock. He was also startled, rubbing his eyes and stretching. He laughed heartily at her reaction. “What? Am I missing a few pieces to my face, или is my hair gone?” Keith pretended to have a panic attack over his “golden fleece.” “No, no silly,” Chloe belted out laughing, “I was just…shocked to see Ты wake up so...

Hi all! I've been a HUGE CT Фан for quite some time now and I've been needing new ways of expressing it..so, I'm venting all my adoration for them through fanfictions! :D This particular one is about Keith Harkin, so I hope Ты all enjoy it! Please tell me what Ты think!!! Thankies and much Любовь to each of Ты Thunderheads! ;]

How could this be? Chloe Moore sat in the corner of her bedroom, warm tears gently flowing down her naturally rosy cheeks. She turned the lights off, listening intently to the heavy raindrops tapping on the roof of her small apartment. Small but loud flashes of lightning lit the sky at certain intervals, making Chloe cringe deeper into the wall. As always, the weather seemed to match her mood. She was almost certain that the sudden bad news she received would drastically put a damper on her life’s happiness forever. Chloe could feel her eyes swelling up from all her crying, but the stinging pain didn’t force the streams on her face to a stop. She was definitely in a state of hopelessness, and it filled her сердце with anger and agony. Her mind kept playing painful memories over and over...

Hello,

There still seems a lot of misunderstanding about the auditions. Aside from my earlier explanation, I should probably point out that we auditioned the 5 guys for Celtic Thunder in February 2007 for the tours Ты first went to in October 2008.

It takes time and effort to find talented singers, it's not something Ты can just do overnight.

We discussed doing this last year, while we were out on tour actually. Phil and I have just been too busy to even get started on it. This is the first stage in a process to find talented singers.

It's not yet relevant. The first releases haven't even been released anywhere else yet. Since we started touring we knew we were exposed should any of the guys be ill. Thankfully, they are all amazing professionals and regardless of how sick they might have been on a дана night, they went out there anyway and gave their all at every show.

It would be naive of us to assume in the middle of any дана 70 Показать tour that we will never hit a situation where someone may not be able to perform and up to now, we've had no back up for that scenario.

Hello,
I see there is lots of speculation on the auditions coming up in Ireland. So, I'll give a little еще information here.
Basically we have done a deal to release the original "Celtic Thunder - The Show" in Europe, Asia and Africa.

As a result we will have to tour that original Показать as it will be a couple of years before the releases in those territories catch up to "It's Entertainment".

These territories want tours of the "Celtic Thunder - The Show" that we toured here in 2008.
I'm sure all the CT Фаны here would be less than impressed with us disappearing from North America entirely to break Celtic Thunder elsewhere!
It should also be pretty apparent that our 6 foot plus 18 год old Damian (as he will be from September) is not going to be going out later this год или Далее in Европа или Asia Пение "Puppy Love" at this stage. Not sure our new audiences wouldn't wonder if we'd switched the little boy on the Показать they will see on TV and buy on DVD with George were Damian to try to do that! Remember, they are not aware of CT yet and are not up to speed on the evolution and progression of the Показать and performers. When they catch...

October 1, 2008 When it comes to Celtic Thunder, producer Sharon Browne and songwriter/composer Phil Coulter have captured lightning in a bottle. Their year-old male vocal group's self-titled debut CD premiered at No. 1 on the Billboard World Музыка chart and millions of people have already seen the ensemble perform via PBS and DVD.
Now, hot on the heels of their секунда album, "Celtic Thunder: Act Two," which was released Sept. 16, the quintet is preparing for a 48-city U.S. концерт tour, which kicks off Oct. 3 in Binghamton, N.Y., and wraps up in Chicago on Dec. 17.

Headlining the Показать are Damian McGinty, Keith Harkin, Paul Byrom, Ryan Kelly and George Donaldson -- a group of vocalists who range in age from 15 to 40, but who share a common Celtic heritage. The guys perform -- both individually and as an ensemble -- an eclectic mix of songs, including traditional and contemporary Irish music, as well as some international hits and original material. Among their best-loved numbers are "Heartland," "The Mountains of Mourne," "Raggle Taggle Gypsy," "Ride On," "The Old Man," "Heartbreaker," "Nights in White Satin," "Come By the Hills," "Puppy Love," "My Boy,"...

Hello everyone,

I have been meaning to post something for the past few weeks regarding 'Storm', but am just now getting around to it. First off, let me just preface this by saying that I am totally delight that Deirdre Shannon has joined the team! I don't know how many of Ты are familiar with the lovely Deirdre, but she is a very accomplished musician within her own right. Deirdre is a classically trained crossover artist who comes with a Список of credits that Ты may find amazing. Her prior background includes Пение with such groups as Anuna, Celtic Woman, The Celtic Tenors and the Canadian Tenors, Dionne Warwick, Air Supply, The Celtic Divas, Frank McNamera, and еще recently she traveled with Lord of the Dance portraying Erin the Goddess. Currently she is working with the musical sensation Ragus and is getting ready to tour to Japan. Her highly acclaimed self titled CD, 'Deirdre Shannon' earned two prestigious awards. and she has graced some of the most well known концерт halls in the world. Having worked with Sharon Browne before in Celtic Woman, it made complete sense that she was asked to Присоединиться Celtic Thunder as she indeed is a very good fit. еще so, I hope...

I took all the silly little words we use, made official sounding definitions for them, and put them in alphabetical order. There are only ones in here that have been used before, which is why there is no term for George fans, tell me if Ты know one. I hope it makes Ты laugh! If Ты think some of the definitions are wrong, tell me, please!

Baby Braces~ A term of endearment referring to Damian McGinty. Not an extremely well known term. It originated from musikluver94.
By the Busses~ If one is not able to obtain meet and greet passes, they must wait outdoors near link enduring the weather for a chance of meeting The Guys.
Damianites~can be used to simply say Ты are a Фан of Damian McGinty, but it mostly means people who have a crush on Damian; sometimes implies Ты like Damian better than Keith

I have climbed highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you
I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like a fire
This burning desire

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I believe in the Kingdom Come
Then all the Цвета will bleed into one
Bleed into one
But yes I'm still running

Ты broke the bonds
And Ты loosed the chains
Carried the cross
Of my shame

Overture and beginners please... Strike up the band... Stand by for Celtic Thunder... and "It's Entertainment."

This stylish and high energy trip through some of the great songs of the last 30years is pure showbiz! It is a tribute from Celtic Thunder to the legacy they have inherited from the great entertainers of the past, and a mark of how far they themselves have travelled as performers, in a few short years.

It evokes an era of big bands and boulevards, вверх hats and tails and Пение and dancin' in the rain! It makes for irresistible listening as the principals from this generation pay their respects to the stars of an earlier time. In the true tradition of variety, the Музыка covers a mix of styles, songs and singers as the lads salute their musical Герои - from Фред Astaire to Neil Diamond, from Jim Croce to Chicago, from Michael Buble to The пляж, пляжный Boys!

Each member features with two songs, one a serious workout, the other a bit of pure fun and a chance to let the hair down! These lighter choices have George stomping around to The Proclaimer's 'My Life With You,' while Ryan takes on the persona of a Chicago gangster with 'Bad, Bad Leroy...

I first saw Celtic Thunder one evening in December. Before the show, I spent $15 for a beautiful program. At intermission, I spent $10 each for posters of Ryan and Paul. After the show, I spent $10 and $15 for a Keith poster and a group poster. Ryan now presides in pride of place over my bed, with Paul on his right and Keith on the other Стена to his left. The group poster is Далее to Keith. Later, I bought the cds. Keith's lullaby voice Пение "The Island", Ryan's velvet voice Пение "Brothers in Arms", and all of them Пение "Danny Boy" and "Steal Away" now lull me to sleep every night.
Just thought I'd let people know...

Celtic Thunder is one of the most talented groups in the world. Their members range from age 16 to 40 and they bring a variety of voices into their act. Damian McGinty was only 14 years old when Celtic Thunder recorded all of the songs for the live Показать and now at 16 he has a voice which sounds well еще experienced than a teenager. The romantic rebel of the group Ryan Kelly is now 30 years old and brings character and exitment into the group. A professional actor, he knows how to work the crowd with his firey romance scenes. A kid at heart, 40-year-old George Donaldson brings a peacefulness to the group with his ballads. He is the only member who is not from Ireland, but from Glasgow Scotland. Далее Paul Byrom is a robust tenor who sings many different numbers including the Популярное "Nights in White Satin". Also 30 years of age he has a professional vocal backround. The last (but certainly not least) is Keith Harkin. A 21-year-old who is not only an amazing singer, but also a talented гитара player. Sure to steal the ladies сердце with his good looks, his voice is no less gripping. Keith is also a composer and the live Показать features one of his original songs called...

My name is Victoria. My family came from Ireland and Scotland so long назад it's almost silly to say we are "from there." But... when I hear Celtic Thunder, both as a group and as individual singers, I can honestly say that something very deep stirs as if the Музыка were already familiar to my сердце and soul. I bought the CD and DVD not knowing that it would also make a difference to my family and my students in my classes. I played the CD hoping at least one student would learn to like some other Музыка besides something that was screaming loudly in their ears. Well, as the voices started and the drums played and the bagpipes played... all my students stopped what they were doing in class. Whether it was homework или some other thing they had begun, they stopped, listened and were fixated on what they heard. Make no mistake. Not only are the gentlemen in this band extraordinary singers. But the whole Показать and indeed the concept, makes us all feel like we belong somewhere else in this world. Hearts and ears have opened up and I hope Ты continue to make the Музыка we all need to hear.
