The Thunderous Sounds of "Mythology"
Celtic Thunder is an all male vocal group from Ireland. Admission to the group is by audition, and members come and go, usually to pursue a solo performing career. They span the spectrum from young to more mature, but they each possess and outstanding voice and stage presentation. One of them is a chartered accountant, another a bus builder and a couple of others have degrees in music. The blonde surfer dude of the group even lives on a boat off the Californian coast. They maintain a brutal touring schedule, with dancers and their own band, and later this year, Celtic Thunder will perform on a Caribbean cruise. "Mythology" is their latest release and consists of mainly Irish songs, just in time for St. Patrick's Day.
