Surpassing sales of one million units combined, the musical phenomenon that is Celtic Thunder have just been hailed as BILLBOARD's Top World Music Artist, along with Top World Music Imprint and Top World Album of 2011 for their most current disc, Heritage. Celtic Thunder rings in 2012 with a new CD and DVD concert special, VOYAGE just in time for St. Patrick's Day. VOYAGE the concert special will be broadcast across the U.S. on Public Television stations during the March 2012 pledge period, with an estimated one thousand airings beginning in late February (check local listings). Both the new CD and DVD available NOW!
VOYAGE continues to pay homage to the musical culture of Ireland, while exploring the musical journey each soloist has undertaken since the beginning of Celtic Thunder four years ago. Former members Damian McGinty and Paul Byrom have moved on - McGinty's star continues to rise after securing a reoccurring role on FOX's hit show GLEE (a result of winning last year's "The GLEE Project"), while Paul Byrom launches his own solo career as well. Keith Harkin is also working on a solo project while maintaining his integral role in Celtic Thunder. He is the first artist signed to the newly helmed David Foster Verve Music Group, and is readying his forthcoming solo debut wildly anticipated by "Thunder Heads" everywhere. The rest of the ensemble including Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, Neil Byrne, George Donaldson and Emmet Cahill welcome 13-year-old Daniel Furlong to the fold as a guest artist on this recording. The group performances highlight the diversity of Irish music and song; from the powerful rendition of "Dulaman" to the love song "Maid of Culmore," the collection also features a rousing performance of "Galway Girl" and beloved Irish party song "My Irish Molly-O."

A break from the busy schedule of the show Celtic Thunder
means anything but rest for star Keith Harkin.
THERE are a multitude of things you could imagine a singer from the band Celtic Thunder doing on their downtime.
Brushing up on their Irish dancing, chasing leprechauns at the end of the rainbow, getting some lessons on the uilleann pipes perhaps.
But the blond- haired, blue-eyed heart-throb of Celtic Thunder, Keith Harkin, is probably more likely to be found catching some waves and working on his tan than anything even remotely Celtic.
After a brief promo tour in Australia last year, Harkin took the opportunity of a few weeks downtime to hit the beach at Byron Bay and instead of impressing people with his voice he was impressing them by cutting up the waves at the popular surfing destination.
Not that he gets a lot of time to perfect his technique.
When Celtic Thunder takes a break, Harkin won't be found kicking back on the sofa watching an Eastenders omnibus in his hometown of Derry in Northern Ireland.
If he even manages to make it back to Derry it is through some kind of small miracle.
Outside of his Celtic Thunder commitments, Harkin pretty much never stops making music.
Speaking to The Courier-Mail before Christmas he revealed his plans for filling his time during the two-month break the rest of the band will enjoy.
"After the last show I am heading over to LA," he says. "I'm going to be working with David Foster and recording my solo album."
He just casually drops David Foster into the conversation as if he is someone everyone hangs out with for a few weeks.
The very same David Foster who discovered the likes of Michael Buble and Josh Groban and produced for people like Celine Dion, Madonna and Michael Jackson.
The David Foster with 16 Grammys on his shelf.
Like most Northern Irish he just takes it all in his stride and gets on with business mostly staying grounded despite working with some of the best people in the world.
That includes his co-stars in the global phenomenon Celtic Thunder.
Since the band formed in 2007, drawing on the talents of a collection of male vocalists from all over Ireland they have celebrated a string of multi-platinum records and sell-out tours all over the world. Despite riding on the wave of interest in all things Celtic, Harkin says he never expected the group to become the huge deal it has.
"Even when we recorded the first album I had no idea how big it would get," he says.
"When it kicked off it was surreal and then we got our first number one on the billboard charts in the States."
The group seems to have found the formula for keeping audiences happy.
"We sing songs for everyone really, there is something for everyone in the show and there aren't many bands who do that," he says.
"We get people in the audience from the age of four to 104 and there is a song for all of them in there."
