About the Irish Tenors
Before their big break, the Irish Tenors were a purely Isles based phenomenon, crooning
their hearts out across Ireland and Great Britain during their early years. The musical trio, consisting of Finbar Wright,
Ronan Tynan, and Anthony Kearns, would be the brainchild of producers Bill Hughes and Daniel Harte, who approached all three
of the Tenors individually in the late 90s. The inspiration for the group would come from legendary Spanish vocal group Three
Tenors, which had swept the highest echelons of the music media across Europe and North America. The Three Tenors became famous
from their performances at some of the biggest media events in the world, including at festivals in and around the iconic
city of Cannes, France.
Bill Hughes and Daniel Harte first approached well known vocalist Finbar Wright, who would become
the leading figure of Hughes and Harte's up and coming music project. The two soon recruited accomplished vocalists Anthony
Kearns and Ronan Tynan, and by 1999, the Hughes and Harte gamble was a monumental success as the Irish Tenors stole hearts
across America while being broadcast on America's Public Broadcast Service.
After their success on PBS, the band was
immediately recruited for follow up tours and a label deal. The band became one of the hottest tickets in new music throughout
the 2000s, earning them the accolade of one of the best acts of 2001 by Billboard. The band was soon invited to major performances
all across the United States, playing from the iconic Ellis Island to America's Irish capital, Boston Massachusetts. Though
the band has shuffled members in and out over the years, the current lineup of Finbar Wright, Ronan Tynan, and Anthony Kearns
make the rounds around the hottest concert destinations twice a year, during Winter holidays and St. Patrick's Day.
The band's first big breakout would be the 1998 PBS special The Irish Tenors, which broadcast across
America and immediately ingrained the Tenors in the hearts of mainstream Americana. Their debut performance would soon be
followed up by 1999's The Irish Tenors: Live in Dublin, which again blew up ratings across the board and became a major hit
in PBS' broadcast history.
Building on their momentum, the Irish Tenors soon played a blowout show at Ellis Island,
hosted by Irish American Martin Sheen. A tribute to strong Irish American ties that go back centuries, the Ellis Island show
was yet another monumental success that secured The Irish Tenors' future for decades to come. The live album released from
the performance would hit the #1 position on Billboard's Heatseeker chart, making it one of their most successful releases
The group also found love with its domestic Irish market, headlining a medley of musicians during The Irish
Tenors & Friends television special. The friends of the Tenors included Andrew Lloyd Webber, Finbar Furey, Sharon Shannon,
and Lucia Evans.
The band received open invitations from states across America, especially in South
Carolina. In anticipation of a concert at Charleston, South Carolina's legislature passed a proclamation of welcome for the
The band has featured other key vocalists in its lineup, including Karl Scully and John McDermott. The
two have rotated in and out of the group as schedules and circumstances have permitted.
