Celtic Thunder singer Emmet Cahill performing in 60 cities in US and Canada

Irish singer Emmet Cahill first found fame with Celtic Thunder before adding a successful solo career to his achievements.

The award-winning tenor made his Carnegie Hall debut to a sold-out audience in March 2018. So what does he do for an encore? Cahill kicks off his biggest solo tour to date in Vancouver, BC on February 6. His 2019 tour will cover over 60 cities across the US and Canada, including many new markets.

Following up on his number-one World Music album, “Emmet Cahill’s Ireland,” Cahill will unveil his new album, “Blessing of Music,” this month. The album is a mix of traditional Irish classics, such as “Galway Bay” and “The Last Rose of Summer,” and church hymns such as “Be Thou My Vision” and “How Great Thou Art.”

“With this album, I wanted to encompass the emotional connection that we all feel during a live musical experience,” explains Cahill. “This album is a representation of the many blessings that music has brought to my life, and also the lives of so many others.”

Cahill’s extensive repertoire includes not only Irish and church music, but also Broadway standards, “The Great American Songbook” and operatic arias. And with most of his concerts taking place in churches, Cahill invites the local church choirs to perform with him.

“I love involving choirs, hearing them sing and learning new music by collaborating with them. The best way to enjoy music is to share it with others, and we always make the community feel like they’re part of our concerts. We involve the audience, too. I like to tell them that they should have their voices warmed up on the night, as they’ll be singing along with me!”

“Blessing of Music” will be available exclusively at Cahill’s concerts.

Tickets for Cahill’s concerts may be purchased through his website. More dates will be added in the coming weeks and months.
