Performing all of your favourites, Finbar Wright returns to the 38th Clifden Arts Festival on Sunday September 20th. Accompanied by top-class musicians, Finbar is marking twenty-five years of making heart-warming music, not only on this legendary stage in Clifden, where he made his debut at the very beginning of his career, but, also, on stages all around the world. Ranked as one of the finest voices of modern times and Ireland’s best-loved tenor, this will be a night of beautiful songs, some laughter , lots of smiles, and, above all, excellent entertainment!
Ever since he released his first album ‘Because’ in 1990, Finbar Wright has been a household name in Ireland. Twenty five years on, his achievements have been impressive, surpassing even the high expectations of music gurus such as producers Mike Batt and Phil Coulter who both worked on some of his earliest albums and correctly predicted that he would be a world star. He has performed in all the major concert halls around the globe from the Albert Hall in London to Sydney Opera House; from the Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles to Carnegie Hall, New York. Working alongside some of the greatest orchestras in the world, he has sung with famous performers as diverse as Jerry Lee Lewis and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, and from Bryn Terfel of Wales to Montserrat Caballé of Spain.
