Emmet Cahill is an award-winning Irish tenor and a principal vocalist with the renowned Irish music show Celtic Thunder. St. Brigid Church is pleased to announce that he is performing a concert here on Thursday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m. You will not want to miss this!
Emmet’s concert in Louisville is part of his 2018 solo tour across the United States to promote his debut orchestral album, “Emmet Cahill’s Ireland,” which went to number one of the Amazon, iTunes and Billboard World Music charts. Backed by the Orchestra of Ireland, Emmet offers his interpretation of the best of the traditional Irish repertoire, including “Danny Boy”, “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling”, “An Irish Lullaby”, “My Cavan Girl” and “The Parting Glass.”
In addition to performing songs from his album, Emmet will sing Broadway favorites, folk classics, sacred hymns, plus an occasional operatic aria that will showcase his classical vocal training received at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin. Ever the charming Irishman, Emmet will also share stories and tell a few (bad) jokes! It’ll be a special night of songs and tales with the Emerald Isle’s most exciting young tenor!
