Regarded as Ireland’s most exciting young tenor, Emmet Cahill first came to the attention of audiences throughout North America and Australia as lead singer with the PBS music phenomenon Celtic Thunder, recording 6 chart-topping albums with the group. On Friday, Oct. 7, this rising talent arrives in Maine to perform at the historic Opera House in Boothbay Harbor.
Cahill has performed in over 80 cities across the U.S. and Canada and made a sellout solo concert debut at New York’s Carnegie Hall to rave reviews. He has performed in churches and theatres nationwide, as well as symphony halls with orchestras in Florida, Tennessee, and New York. He was chosen to open the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade last March and was named ‘Irish tenor of the Year’ by the Irish American Music association, and asked to perform for the March 17th Mass at New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral last spring.
He hails from Mullingar, Ireland, and is a graduate of the Royal Irish Academy of Music and recipient of the Schola Cantorum. He started touring with Celtic Thunder in 2010.
His concerts are comprised of a varied program of Irish classics as well as gospel favorites and Broadway hits. He has recently returned to opera studies and currently studies with a voice teacher in New York. Emmet has performed as a guest artist in various recitals throughout the city, most recently for ’Opera Under the Arch’ at Washington Square Park.
