The Irish Tenors

Ranked as Ireland’s premier ambassadors of song, The Irish Tenors entertain audiences worldwide with an unrivaled, incomparable quality of performance worthy of the rich cultural heritage of Ireland.

This heartfelt and patriotic music reflects the passion and beauty of three voices that come together for rich, traditional and entertaining songs.

Finbar Wright is a tenor, songwriter and poet who was born in Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland. His musical education began at the age of 6, and he later studied music theory at the Cork School of Music. He went on to win many major singing awards and released his first album Because in 1990 with Sony Records. He has recorded six albums with the Irish Tenors and starred in numerous international television specials with the group. Wright has also appeared in concert with such music legends as Monserrat Caballé, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, and Rock ‘n’ Roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis.

Anthony Kearns was born in a small Irish village in County Wexford. He studied at Leinster School of Music and The College of Music in Wales. In 1998 he joined the Irish Tenors and with the group has produced ten albums that have sold millions of copies. Kearns has toured through the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand. As a solo artist, he has had many distinguished and acclaimed solo performances in challenging Operatic roles, including Don Jose in Carmen, and Romeo in Romeo and Juliet. Whether in the realm of the classics and opera, or the traditional music of his homeland, his voice expresses great truth and rich conviction.

Ronan Tynan is a true modern day renaissance man. After studying voice for only one year, he won the John McCormack Cup for Tenor Voice and the BBC talent show Go For It. He also won the International Operatic Singing Competition in Maumarde, France, and has performed in numerous operas internationally.
