Celtic Tenors: Matthew Gilsenan

The Celtic Tenors are back by popular demand to play at The ACT , travelling 7,000 kilometres to perform a belated St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Maple Ridge this week.

Irish trio Matthew Gilsenan, James Nelson and Daryl Simpson perform well-know melodies with a humorous and fresh approach.

While each of The Celtic Tenors have been influenced by the musical traditions from their own individual parts of Ireland, all three show great flexibility in melding their voices to suit the appropriate classical, folk, Irish and pop genres. For this accomplishment they were awarded the “Echo Award” in Germany for “Classical without Boundaries”.

The Celtic Tenors’ live show is an experience overflowing with vitality and variety from start to finish.

The unique voices, charm and wit of all three performers, combined with their talented young musical director Colm Rogan, take the audience on an emotive and uplifting journey. Equally at home performing to large festival crowds or intimate concert halls and theatres, their voices and personalities always shine through alongside their undeniable Celtic charm.

• The Celtic Tenors play the ACT Friday, March 23 at 8 p.m. Tickets at actmapleridge.org.
