Celtic Thunder brings LEGACY to JAX for 1 night only

Celebrating the influence with a brand new show of Irish and Celtic music are international megastars “Celtic Thunder - LEGACY”.  The group will be storming onto the Jacksonville Times-Union Center’s Moran stage for one performance only and tickets are available now.  Continuing their tradition of paying homage to the musical culture and traditions of Ireland, Celtic Thunder’s latest show is a depiction of both their musical footprint over the past eight years, as well as their amazing heritage of Irish and Celtic music.

Legacy is a live show featuring a mix of lively, fast paced and upbeat songs “A Place in The Choir,” “Galway Girl” and “Raggle Taggle Gypsy” that represent the fun-loving nature of the Irish and slower classic ballads “Danny Boy,” “Noreen” and “Buachaille On Eirne” that portray a more nostalgic and romantic side.  Celtic Thunder features five male vocalists backed by the amazing eight-piece Celtic Thunder band, ensuring that Celtic Thunder LEGACY has something special something to offer to everyone.  Celtic Thunder is produced by Sharon Browne.

Both the ensemble and solo performances in this thrilling evening of entertainment highlight the diversity of Irish music and song. Powerful anthems like “Ireland’s Call” and “Caledonia,” heartwarming ballads “Song for the Mira” and “Take Me Home” and lively crowd favorites such as “Seven Drunken Nights” all serve to showcase the musical talent of each soloist.

Formed in Dublin in 2007, Celtic Thunder is a multi-dimensional musical and theatrical ensemble celebrated around the world for emotionally powerful performances and a state-of-the-art production.  Billboard magazine has named Celtic Thunder the Top World Album Artist (in 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2015) while the group has had LPs placed in the World Album Top 10 every year since 2008.
