Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns, and Ronan Tynan have been touring together as The Irish Tenors since 1998, selling out shows at Radio City Music Hall, Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall, The Hollywood Bowl, and major concert halls throughout the world. Their faces and voices are familiar to PBS audiences from several specials, including the “Ellis Island Recordings.” Together, they produce a sound and concert experience which touches hearts and stirs emotions through happy songs of celebration and humor mixed with touching melodies and songs that warm the heart.

Since they first joined voices in 1998, The Irish Tenors have proven themselves gifted interpreters of a wide range of material, with such songs as “My Heart Will Go On” (from Titanic), “Fairytale of New York”(previously recorded by Kirsty MacColl and The Pogues), and even Jimmy Kennedy’s “South of the Border” living comfortably alongside “Danny Boy,” “Whiskey in the Jar,” and “Fields of Athenry.” Among their best-selling albums, Heritage ranks as one of the finest with classic recordings of many of the most beautiful Irish songs.
The Irish Tenors powerful vocal line-up of Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns, and Ronan Tynan are unquestionably the leading brand of this genre. All classically trained singers, each having performed in leading concert halls across the world, together they combine to produce a sound and concert experience which touches hearts and stirs the emotions.
They are surely versatile, but for many, the group is synonymous with Irish music. There is an aching, bittersweet quality to much of Ireland’s musical heritage, a melodic loveliness and emotional intensity. The dazzling technique and depth of feeling that defines this musical genre, amplified to the third power, is the hallmark of The Irish Tenors.
The magic they’ve captured on previous releases has resulted in millions of albums sold and the upper reaches of Billboard’s music charts. The Irish Tenors have appeared on several incredibly successful and highly rated PBS specials including “Ellis Island” and “Live from Belfast” as well as “The Today Show,” “Good Morning America,” “Regis and Kelly,” “Martha Stewart,” A&E’s “Breakfast with the Arts,” and are one of the best-selling acts to appear on QVC.
