The Irish tenors are an acapella singing group consisting of three members, Ronan Tynan, Anthony Kearns and Finbar Wright. They are based in Ireland and sing mostly in the classical or traditional pop genres. They have been together as a professional group since 1999 when they appeared on a singing show for a local television network. This show was sponsored by the record label that would sign them in the future, PBS. The trio has worked alongside Martin Sheen, an Irish-American actor who discovered their talent helped promote them through yet another PBS show called “The Irish Tenors Live from Ellis Island”. It was Sheen who saw the potential in all three singers and noticed them for their high energy, dedication, and their work ethic. 13 years later, the group continues to travel around the world to sing and endorse their original music. The Irish Tenors tickets have constantly sold with the same vigor that was shown by the fans in their early days.
The idea of putting together such a band was pitched by Bill Hughes and Daniel Harte. This idea was inspired by their visit to the “Cannes Festival” where a number of vocal groups and classical singers including “Placudo Domingo”, “Three Tenors”, “Jose Carreras” and Luciano Pavarotti were in attendance. It was being in the presence of such singing talent that the two wanted to produce a singing show of their own. Their initial plan was to record a two hour special, and for this they contacted Finbar Wright to come forth and become part of a potential group. Unfortunately, at that time Wright was bound to his legal obligation to “Sony BMG”, his record label, under which he could take no such projects. Thus Hughes and Harte reached out to John McDermott next. He was a Canadian singer who was trying to make it as a solo artist. He took up on the offer right away and became the lead singer. To complete the group, the help of Veronica Dunne, Ireland’s top vocal coach was sought. She put forward the names of Ronan Tynan and Anthony Kearns as the perfect suitors for a vocal group. And so, by 1999, the trio was complete and Hughes and Harte finally got on air the television special they had dreamt about, “The Irish Tenors in Dublin”. This was broadcasted in most of the United States through the PBS network.
The television feature was a huge success. In less than a year, the trio gained enough popularity to score yet another show with PBS. Before they could record a second special, the group met with an unfortunate incident. McDermott’s mother passed away and he decided that during this time, he could not commit to the band completely. This setback came to the group just days before they were to their next special titled “The Irish Tenors—Live in Belfast”. Hughes and Harte thus decided to reach out to their original choice for the group once again—Finbar Wright. He agreed to step in on the last moment and so the trio managed to get a second special after all. Wright agreed to help out even more remained with the group for the rest of the tour as well. But once he was no longer obligated to “Sony BMG”, he became the permanent third member of the group and has remained with the band to this date.
This lineup of The Irish Tenors has been together since then and has achieved more than many touring bands of their kind can manage. They have played in venues around the world and have sold millions of concert DVDs. Whenever they perform at festivals; they manage to sell out The Irish Tenors tickets completely. They have performed full house at nearly every “Radio City Music Hall” event each year. They even had the honor of performing at the “Sydney Opera House”.
