| What do you folks think of the male equivalent, Celtic Thunder? |
I was not at all impressed with Celtic Thunder (I am impressed that the young kid in it has such a good tenor vocal range). They sound very commercial and more like a Broadway production of "I am Irish, Hear me sing the classics". They played here and I didn't even consider going to see them. I think I like my Celtic music either more punchy (toe tappin pub music) in the genre referred to as Celtic Rock, or I like it in ballads done with passion for the song. (a bit of pipes and impressive violin work helps too).
just my humble opinion...
