Saturday Songs – Special Sunday Edition

In keeping theme with the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day, I selected another Irish based musical act.  Little did I know how fitting it would be to pick Celtic Thunder for this weekend.

When looking up more information on Celtic Thunder, I learned that one of the singers, George Donaldson, had passed away the 12th from a heart attack.

Here is a selection of three songs from Celtic Thunder.  The first is Heartland, a song that I really like (though I prefer to listen to the extended version that is on their CD Act Two)

Next is another song that comes from their Act Two CD.  Raggle Taggle Gypsy, in addition to a “drum battle” features each of the five principle singers of Celtic Thunder taken a verse of the song.

Finally, Celtic Thunder performs Caledonia.
