Ronan Tynan and the Celtic Tenors

     Friday night about 6:00 a deluge of rain hit the South Shore. Reports indicate that my town received close to three inches in just one hour. Ordinarily, while very unusual, this wouldn't pose too serious a problem, but a friend and I had tickets to see Ronan Tynan and the Celtic Tenors at the South Shore Music Circus in Cohasset that evening, and many roads were impassable. We detoured around flooded streets, and fortunately, by 7:15 the rain had let up. We arrived with time to spare.

       My mom had been a big fan of the Irish Tenors, and indeed, she would watch their PBS programs whenever they were on whether she had seen the show before or not, and of course, we had their CD. How she would have loved Friday night's concert! Ronan entered without fanfare and just began singing with his big, booming, magnificent voice. Wow! What an incredible voice this man has!

     After an intermission, the Celtic Tenors took the stage. These three gentlemen from 
Ireland have been performing together for twelve years, and their harmonies were truly impressive. They all had fine voices, and they were funny, personable, and very talented. Having said that, I wish Ronan Tynan had sung on through the night. Don't ever miss an opportunity to see Ronan Tynan in concert.


  1. so glad you enjoyed the evening... and that you were safe in the rain xx

  2. I absolutely agree. Anytime you have an opportunity to see this most amazing man - DO IT! and then do it again & again & again. You'll never be disappointed.
