Celtic Thunder's Keith Harkin and Neil Byrne visit WXXI's studio to present their most ambitious project to date – Celtic Thunder: It's Entertainment, premiering on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11) Thursday, September 9 at 8 p.m. Harkin and Byrne will share stories about filming their latest music special, and will explain how to get tickets to their December 8, 2010 concert at the Auditorium Theater in Rochester.

Filmed in Toronto, Celtic Thunder: It's Entertainment is a musical review that spans six decades and will delight audiences, whether with nostalgic reminiscence of old classics such as “Standing on the Corner” or with the band’s unique take on contemporary numbers such as Michael Bublé’s “Home” and U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”

The five lead members of Celtic Thunder — Paul Byrom, George Donaldson, Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly and Damian McGinty — along with guitarist Neil Byrne, who also takes a turn singing lead, bring their talents to a whole new level with the support of their band and the introduction of nine sensational dancers featured throughout the show.

As a Thunderhead, it is great to see the lads come to Rochester. I've had to travel to Binghampton, and Buffalo to see them live! I can't wait for everyone in the area to be introduced to a wonderfully entertaining show...now people won't look at me like I'm speaking a foreign language when I tell them about the show. Thanks!
