Two of Celtic Thunder’s phenomenal performers, Ryan Kelly and Keith Harkin, will visit the CPTV studio on Saturday, August 7, 2010, at 7:30 p.m. During their appearance, they will host their latest television special – Celtic Thunder: It’s Entertainment. This Red Carpet performance includes information on exclusive ticket offers for Celtic Thunders’ upcoming Connecticut concert event.
Celtic Thunder: It’s Entertainment is astylish and high energy show featuring some of the great songs of the past 30 years. It is a tribute to the legacy of the great entertainers of the past, and a mark of how far the members of Celtic Thunder themselves have traveled as performers, in a few short years.
Celtic Thunder: It’s Entertainment evokes an era of big bands and boulevards, top hats and tails, and singing and dancin’ in the rain! It makes for irresistible listening as the principals from this generation pay their respects to the stars of an earlier time. In the true tradition of variety, the music covers a mix of styles, of songs and of singers, as the performers salute their musical heroes – from Fred Astaire to Neil Diamond, from Jim Croce to Chicago, from Michael Buble to The Beach Boys.
