Celtic Thunder makes its second 'Voyage' to Abbotsford

Celtic Thunder will make its second “voyage” to Abbotsford later this year.

The popular group, which has surpassing sales of one million units, rang in 2012 with a new CD and DVD concert special, called Voyage. Voyage, the concert, was broadcast across the U.S. on Public Television and Celtic Thunder is now bringing the performance across north America.

The show pays homage to the musical culture of Ireland, while exploring the musical journey each soloist has undertaken since the beginning of Celtic Thunder four years ago.

Former members Damian McGinty and Paul Byrom have moved on while Keith Harkin is working on a solo project. The rest of the ensemble including Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, Neil Byrne, George Donaldson and Emmet Cahill welcome 13-year-old Daniel Furlong to the fold as a guest artist on this show.

The group performances highlight the diversity of Irish music and song; from the powerful rendition of “Dulaman” to the love song “Maid of Culmore,” the collection also features a rousing performance of “Galway Girl” and beloved Irish party song “My Irish Molly-O.”

Celtic Thunder will perform Voyage at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre on Nov. 27 at 8 p.m.

Tickets go on sale on Monday, April 16 at 10 a.m. Tickets are available at abbotsfordcentre.ca, the AESC box office, the Abbotsford and Matsqui recreation centres, Whatcom Wine and Spirits or by phone at 1-866-977-2372.
