EMMET CAHILL

SOLO ARTIST

EMMET CAHILL

Emmet Cahill is 27 years old and hails from Mullingar in County Westmeath in Ireland. His musical journey began with a piano lesson when he was just 5 years old. By the time he turned 7 Emmet had begun to have his voice professionally trained and he later went on to win a music scholarship for high school in Mullingar. Emmet spent the next 5 years intensively studying and playing music. At school he furthered his studies in piano, organ, violin and vocal training, but singing was always his true choice. He continued his education at the prestigious Royal Irish Academy of Music where he received a university degree in Music Performance.

Emmet has been cast in many stage productions and has performed on stage at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin and as a soloist at the National Concert Hall. He is an avid sports fan and has twice sung the Irish national anthem at Croke Park Stadium in Dublin in front of crowds of 90,000. Emmet has also performed for the former President of Ireland Mary McAleese and has sung at several international rugby games in Dublin’s new Aviva Stadium.

2010 proved to be a very exciting year for Emmet Cahill. He was awarded The John McCormack Bursary for the most Promising Young Tenor, was named the most promising young singer at the Royal Irish Academy of Music, was a multiple prizewinner at the National Feis Ceoil singing competition in Ireland and was approached by Celtic Thunder producer Sharon Browne and invited to join the show. He recorded and toured with Celtic Thunder from 2011 to 2014.

Emmet started his Celtic Thunder journey on the Heritage tour with his rendition of an original song Kindred Spirits that Phil Coulter had written especially for him. The baritone of Celtic Thunder shows, Emmett performed belting solo numbers showcasing the richness of his voice. During his time with Celtic Thunder Emmet recorded the Voyage and Mythology CDs and Public TV specials as well as the Heritage and Holiday Symphony CDs. In Mythology Emmet performed the inspirational love song Always There, the haunting Irish ballad Isle of Inisfree and a uniquely beautiful version of the all-time favorite Danny Boy.

While Emmet has carved out his own unique identity as a solo artist over the past number of years, he is still an integral member or Celtic Thunder and continues to tour with the show. Emmet was also on the 2017 Celtic Thunder Cruise followed by the 2017 Symphony Tour of North America.

In addition to his role with Celtic Thunder, Emmet released his eagerly anticipated debut solo album “Emmet Cahill’s Ireland” which released February 2017. During his professional career to date, Emmet has immersed in a variety of distinct musical genres, awakening his passion for Irish music as well as other styles. Indeed the Irish Music Association named him “Tenor Of The Year” in 2013.

Emmet is also getting ready to set off on the Celtic Thunder 10th Anniversary tour aptly named ‘Celtic Thunder ‘X’ which will tour the US & Canada Fall 2018. Celtic Thunder are set to appear on the Today Show around St Patrick’s day whilst also opening the St Patrick’s Day Parade in NYC.
