Celtic Thunder - Voyage
Following the incredible success of 'Heritage', Celtic Thunder continues to explore their Irish and Celtic roots in 'Voyage'. The ensemble performances in this new release highlight the diversity of Irish music and song, from the powerful rendition of 'Dulaman' to the love song 'Maid of Culmore', from the rousing performance of 'Galway Girl' to beloved Irish Party songs, 'Seven Drunken Nights' and 'My Irish Molly-O', 'Voyage' explores all aspects of Irish music and song.
The solo performances are equally wonderful and showcase the musical talent of the five soloists (13 year old Daniel Furlong is a guest artist for this recording). 'Voyage' depicts the journey of musical development that each soloist has undertaken since the beginning of Celtic Thunder. It is also the first Celtic Thunder show where all of the artists play different instruments. Keith Harkin plays guitar on his original song 'All Day Long', George and Neil also play guitar on 'Cat's in the Cradle' and 'Past The Point of Rescue' while Ryan and Emmet pick up the tin whistle and fiddle during the ensemble rendition of 'Galway Girl'.
Celtic Thunder 'Voyage' takes a journey through the varying styles of Celtic and Irish music, from old and traditional standards such as 'Lagan Love' and 'Maid of Culmore' to more contemporary, modern Irish songs, 'Past The Point of Rescue', 'Ride On' and 'All Day Long', stopping at lively ensembles 'Galway Girl' and a tribute to the Clancy Brothers in the 'Clancy Brother Medley' along the way. 'Voyage' also offers soulful ballads in 'Scorn Not His Simplicity' and 'Kindred Spirits', and love songs such as the classic 'Black is the Color' and the 'Maid of Culmore' to run the gamut of Irish music.
