The Irish Tenors
Words by Staff Writer

The Irish Tenors have been touring together since 1998, with sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall, The Hollywood Bowl, and major concert halls throughout the world.

Their faces and voices are familiar to audiences around the world, including on the Ellis Island recordings that have sold over a million CDs and DVDs. Since they first joined voices in 1998, The Irish Tenors have breathed new life into countless traditional treasures. Moreover, they’ve proven themselves interpreters of a wide range of material, with such songs as My Heart Will Go On (from Titanic), Fairytale Of New York (previously recorded by Kirsty MacColl and The Pogues), and Jimmy Kennedy’s South Of The Border (Down Mexico Way). These songs comfortably live in their repertoire alongside Danny Boy, Whiskey in the Jar, and Fields Of Athenry.

The Irish Tenors, with Anthony Kearns, Ronan Tynan, and Declan Kelly at the helm, are unquestionably the leading brand of this genre. All classically trained singers, each having performed in leading concert halls across the world, together they produce a sound and concert experience that touches hearts and stirs emotions. Their performances blend happy songs of celebration and humor with touching melodies and heartwarming tunes.

While undoubtedly versatile, for many, Anthony Kearns, Ronan Tynan, and Declan Kelly are synonymous with Irish music. There’s an aching bittersweet quality to much of Ireland’s musical heritage, a melodic loveliness and emotional intensity that brings a tingle to the spine and a tear to the eye. The dazzling technique and depth of feeling that defines this musical genre, amplified to the third power, is the hallmark of The Irish Tenors.

The Irish Tenors continue to tour constantly, thrilling old fans and winning new ones around the globe. In the United States, they are one of the most successful Irish touring acts ever, second only to U2. Whether as the powerful vocal trio in full flight or in their solo spots, a concert performance by The Irish Tenors is an experience that never fails to excite and bear witness to the power of great music when performed by true artists. Most concerts end with two, three, and sometimes four standing ovations, with their songs bringing audiences to their feet.
