The Celtic Tenors came together in Ireland in 1995 and since then have established
themselves as the most successful classical crossover artists ever to emerge from Ireland. The group is composed of Matthew
Gilsenan, James Nelson and Daryl Simpson. In 2000, they were signed to EMI worldwide and they have recorded several albums
Celtic Tenors continue to "..re-invent the Irish Tenor idiom" said composer Phil Coulter, who wrote the
song ‘Remember Me’ specifically for the guys. They pioneer a new style of cool never before
seen on the classical stage and break the traditional stuffy tenor mould. www.celtictenors.com
While each of The Celtic Tenors have been
influenced by the musical traditions from their own individual parts of Ireland, Daryl, James and Matthew show great flexibility
in melding their voices to suit the appropriate classical, folk, Irish and pop genres. They were presented with the "Echo
Award" in Germany for "Classical without Boundaries" in recognition of this fact.
With a total
album sales worldwide of over one million, and a full international touring schedule, The Celtic Tenors have topped the charts
in the USA, Canada, Germany, the UK and Ireland. We are welcome their rendition of the most popular Christmas song of all
time on our album, ‘Silent Night’.
