Celtic Thunder Mythology

Airs Tues., March 12, 2013 at 9:30 p.m. & Sun., March 17 at 9:30 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: Celtic Thunder L-R: Emmet Cahill, Keith Harkin, Neil Byrne, Colm Keegan, Ryan Kelly and George Donaldson.

"Mythology" is the latest show from Celtic Thunder and the show's 9th special for Public Television. Filmed on location at the Helix Theater in Dublin (where they filmed their debut show in 2007), it's fitting that Celtic Thunder have chosen to return to their roots in order to film this musical odyssey back to the heart of the Celt.

"Mythology" tells the story of our ancestors in Ireland, their legends, their history and their stories. It's the lifeblood of modern day Ireland and it's influences from our Celtic past that are that are still reflected in its people today. Like the Celts, "Mythology" is bold, challenging, strong, proud and steeped in history.
