About the Album

After drenching themselves in pop music for It's Entertainment! and the seasonal Celtic Thunder Christmas album in 2010, Celtic Thunder return to their own brand of shiny new age Celtic-flavored music with Heritage. During the sessions for the album, one of the quintet's original vocalists, Paul Byrom, left the group and was replaced by Emmet Cahill -- though both appear here. The material on Heritage is a mix of traditional tunes, Phil Coulter originals, covers, and even a revisit of "Come by the Hills" from the group's debut album -- sung here in a Gaelic version, "Buachaill ┬Łn Eirne," and in a very different voice by Damian McGinty (he was only 14 when he sang it the first time). Ryan Kelly leads an unusually uptempo and rock-tinged version of "Black Is the Color," and Keith Harkin and Neil Byrne duet on the electric guitar-saturated "Whiskey in the Jar" (inspired no doubt by, but not holding a candle to, Thin Lizzy's definitive version). Byrom is present in a very sentimental "My Love Is Like a Red Red Rose," accompanied by Coulter's piano before the rest of the musicians and orchestra kick in. "Home from the Sea," a Coulter-penned tune, showcases the entire quintet (with Byrom) in chorus-line solidarity. Cahill's showcase is on "Kindred Spirits," a harp-driven folkish ballad written especially for him by Coulter. His theater singer's tenor works seamlessly inside this group's silky voices. "Gold & Silver Days" is another Coulter number that evokes all the archetypal Irish images of the days of yore; it's sung effectively and nostalgically by Kelly and George Donaldson. The strangest moment here is the adaptation of Steve Earle's rough-and-tumble "The Galway Girl," which melded Texas honky tonk and Celtic melody; here it is strictly an irish drinking song with whistles, fiddles, bodhran, and kit drums sung in chorus by the quintet (with Cahill). It's a wild transformation that anyone who's heard Earle's version will never be comfortable with. That said, given that most of Celtic Thunder's audience has probably never heard of the songwriter, it will please them to no end. For those fans of the Celtic Thunder song-and-dance stage show and the group's pre-pop recordings, this is no doubt a welcome return to form. ~ Thom Jurek, Rovi

Rated 5 out of 5★áby Great DVD I saw this program on Public TV. This is a true copy of one of the best concerts given by Celtic Thunder. It is music that can be loved by young and old as witnessed by the audience. Well worth the money if you are considering buying it. I highly recommend it. 04/05/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★áby LOVE THESE WONDERFUL SINGERS I have seen many of the Celtic Thunder videos, so I can imagine them as I hear these songs. I have played this several times and enjoy it just as much each time I hear it. Their sound is definitely unique, and I just love their Irish songs very much. 12/24/2013
