Capitol Center of the Arts: Celtic Thunder – Legacy Tour
44 South Main St. Concord, NH 03301
“Legacy” is an exciting new live show that celebrates the influence of Irish and Celtic music around the world and the imprint that such music has made. The recently-revised cast is Damian McGinty, Ryan Kelly, Neil Byrne, Emmet Cahill and new member Michael O Dwyer, making it a show you likely haven’t seen before. Lively, fast paced and upbeat songs “A Place in The Choir” “Galway Girl” and “Raggle Taggle Gypsy” represent the fun loving nature of the Irish while the slower classic ballads “ Black Velvet Band” “Noreen” and “Mountains of Mourne” play to their nostalgic and romantic side. Featuring all new recordings, the songs on “Legacy” are varied in style and run the gamut from classic Irish folk songs and ballads such as “Danny Boy” and “Buachaille On Eirne” to the more contemporary hits “Falling Slowly” and “Ride On” and rousing anthems “Caledonia” and “Ireland’s Call”. Legacy offers music lovers a wide variety of solo selections and fan favorites, all newly recorded to reflect the current cast on Legacy. The Celtic Thunder vocalists are backed by the eight-piece Celtic Thunder Band on strings, guitars, percussion, whistles, pipes and more, led by musical director is David Munro, who also plays keyboards in the show.
