Celtic Thunder "For The Fans" Cd Review

Who doesn't love a group that makes a cd of fan favorites selected by the fans, for the fans? Well, that is exactly what Celtic Thunder did just a couple of months ago!  This cd is a selection of some of the very best that Celtic Thunder has to offer.  It's the perfect Christmas gift for that person that you're trying to win over to liking Celtic Thunder, because honestly, if you can listen to this cd and not fall
in love with this group's sound then something is very obviously wrong with you! 😉

This cd is filled with classic songs that have shaped Celtic Thunder into the group they are today. From the rousing anthem "Irelands Call" that was on their very first dvd to "Toora Loora Lay" from their latest show "X".

I'll share a quick word from Elaine, the setlist, and lastly my favorite songs.

"Celtic Thunder is delighted to bring you this Very Special CD, We are the first Irish Group to let you, our fans pick all the tracks so We Can Guarantee that you will love it.
IT IS THE FIRST EVER CD FROM CELTIC THUNDER TO FEATURE ALL PAST AND PRESENT CELTIC THUNDER PRINCIPALS AND FEATURES THE BEST SONGS TAKEN FROM  ALL OUR CELTIC THUNDER RELEASES OVER THE PAST TEN YEARS.  We contacted thousands of our fans and asked them to send us their All Time Favourite Top Three Tracks from the last ten years and this CD is what you asked us for.  Enjoy!
  Cheers,
 Elaine

Turning Away - This is an absolutely beautiful song! It's an ensemble feature that quickly become one of our family's favorites when we first heard it, and is constantly being sung around the house.

My Land - Such a wonderful, patriotic song written by the talented Rolf Løvland & Brendan Graham. This song shares of the glories of Ireland. "How green are your valleys, how blue your great skies..."


Toora Loora Lay - Again, this is another one our family fell in love with.  Probably one of the best ones off of "X" (although it is SO hard to choose).  With such a fun, catchy beat and great lyrics, whats not to like?!?


I hope you all enjoyed hearing a few of my favorites off this, and if you don't already own a copy head over to Celtic Thunder's website to purchase your own!  This is an amazing album that you and your entire family are sure to love.
