Creator of Best-Selling Irish Musical Phenomenon 'Celtic Woman' Launches Brand-New Show

Celtic Man in Celtic Thunder.
NEW YORK, NY UNITED STATES


SINGING SENSATION "CELTIC MAN" TO BE FEATURED ON PUBLIC TELEVISION SPECIAL,
CELTIC THUNDER, AIRING IN MARCH 2008

NEW YORK, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharon Browne, creator and former
producer of the chart-topping Irish musical ensemble Celtic Woman, will
introduce her brand-new show, entitled Celtic Man in Celtic Thunder, which
features five male vocalists, collectively called Celtic Man, to U.S.
audiences with a public television special to be broadcast nationally in
March 2008. The special will be distributed by WLIW New York.

For Celtic Thunder, Browne has teamed up with Grammy-nominated Irish
songwriting and composing veteran Phil Coulter to produce a show that
includes an eclectic mix of songs ranging from the traditional "Mountains
of Mourne" and "Come By the Hills" to international hits such as "Brothers
in Arms" and "Desperado," as well as original compositions by Coulter, who
has written hits for Elvis Presley ("My Boy") and the Bay City Rollers, and
performed with Van Morrison, Tom Jones, and the Rolling Stones. The
ensemble numbers in Celtic Thunder reflect the power of the soloists, who
range in age from 14 to 40, and feature songs that celebrate a common
Celtic heritage.

"My concept for Celtic Man was to feature real men of different ages
from Ireland and Scotland," says Browne. "The guys -- Damien McGinty, Keith
Harkin, Ryan Kelly, Paul Byrom, and George Donaldson -- are a real range of
Celts. These men are good-looking in a not-too-pretty way, strong, silent,
quietly powerful, and just a little threatening. There are enough boy bands
out there -- it's time for some real men!"

Browne is a 20-year music business veteran who, prior to Celtic
Thunder, launched Ireland's premier music label Celtic Collections in 1996,
and developed and produced the phenomenally successful Celtic Woman show,
which featured five stunning female soloists.

Celtic Man in Celtic Thunder was filmed in the Helix in Dublin in
August 2007. A CD/DVD of the show will be distributed in the U.S. by
Universal's Decca label beginning February 26th, 2008. In addition, a
50-city tour is scheduled for Fall 2008. Celtic Man in Celtic Thunder, will
air on local public television stations beginning March 2008, and viewers
who support the stations during their fundraising campaign will have the
first opportunity to get tickets for the Fall tour, as well as a special
edition of the CD and DVD with bonus material.

You are going to have a busy year Scott. Concert after concert after concert. Wait what am I saying. That is the coolest life. Enjoy it all. But do think of us that can't do that so much. Have fun for us.

I think of all who has touched my life when I go to these concerts hoping that each and everyone can experience the wonderful music that Ireland has produced and that is so rich and inspiring and that has given us so much.
