Emmet Cahill, principal vocalist for Celtic Thunder and a solo standout widely considered as Ireland’s most exciting young tenor, is returning to Frisco in September as part of his North American tour to promote his new album, “Blessings of Music,” featuring Irish classics and traditional church hymns. Cahill will perform a concert at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church on Thursday, September 12 at 7:30 p.m.
From the age of five, Cahill has been devoted to the world of music, going on to receive music scholarships, study a variety of instruments and receive formal classical training in opera at the prestigious Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin. Along with being recognized with accolades like “Tenor of the Year” by the Irish Music Association and winning multiple classical competitions throughout Ireland, Cahill has served as the principal vocalist for the popular Irish music show Celtic Thunder since 2011.
In 2015, the star singer added “solo artist” to his list of achievements and in 2017, Cahill recorded his number-one World Music album “Emmet Cahill’s Ireland,” accompanied by the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland. Released on the Sony Music USA label, it offers the best of the traditional Irish repertoire. He then went on to perform to a sold-out crowd at Carnegie Hall in March 2018, performed as a guest artist with symphonies in Tennessee, Florida and New York City and conquered a 75-city tour for Celtic Thunder “X,” the group’s 10th anniversary show.
In addition to performing selections from his albums, Cahill will also sing well-known Broadway standards, nostalgic favorites and even a bit of opera. And no Emmet Cahill concert is complete without the ever-popular “song request medley” segment, which often brings surprises from the audience.
Tickets for the concert are $30 – $45 and may be purchased online at https://www.emmetcahill.com/tour-dates/, at the church office or at the door. St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church is located at 8000 Eldorado Parkway in Frisco.
