Since 1998 the talented Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns and Ronan Tynan have delighted audiences around the world with their unique blend of Irish music, charm and humor. All classically trained singers who have performed in leading concert halls around the world, the trio is regarded as one of the leading Irish performing groups, offering a memorable and emotionally charged concert experience. Together they have produced seven bestselling albums, five PBS specials, and are second only to U2 in the States as the most successful Irish touring act ever.
The Irish Tenors became headliners in 1999 after the PBS television debut, “The Irish Tenors: Live in Dublin” and have since offered sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall, Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall, The Hollywood Bowl, and major concert halls throughout the world.
PBS audiences have enjoyed several specials by The Irish Tenors, including “Ellis Island” and “Live from Belfast.” They have appeared on “The Today Show,” “Good Morning America,” “Live with Regis and Kelly,” “Martha Stewart” A&E’s “Breakfast with the Arts,” and they are one of the best-selling acts to appear on QVC. Their recordings including “Heritage” and “We Three Kings” have sold millions.
The concert at Upper Darby Performing Arts Center will offer a wide range of material including “My Heart Will Go On” (from Titanic), “Amazing Grace,” and Jimmy Kennedy’s “South Of The Border (Down Mexico Way),” showcasing the group’s versatility. But for many, Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns and Ronan Tynan are synonymous with Irish music. Their repertoire will include the Irish classics “Danny Boy,” “Whiskey in the Jar” and “Fields Of Athenry” to name just a few.
