Message from Merryn’s parents “Merryn is like most other 4 year old girls. She plays with her dolls, likes dressing up as a princess, dancing to music and will most likely be wearing something pink… and she always seems to be creating – painting, colouring, drawing or making stuff. She gets excited about school and learning. She just adores life! And has the most infectious giggle. But unlike most other 4 year olds, Merryn has one almighty battle to face. She knows she has a lump on her kidney and will ask questions and listen intently when doctors or nurses are talking to us. How do you explain these things to someone so young? Although it’s unfair and we’ve been angry, we know that we owe it to Merryn to give this battle everything we’ve got.”

Celtic Thunder MYTHOLOGY is the latest show from Celtic Thunder. Filmed on location at the Helix Theater in Dublin, it’s fitting that Celtic Thunder have chosen to return to their roots in order to film this musical odyssey.
The core theme of Mythology is found in the original opening number “Voices”, “Voices call from the old days, Voices tell from the past, Ancient laws and ancient old ways to recast.” It’s the story of the Celtic People, their legends, their culture and their stories. It’s the lifeblood of modern day Celtic people everywhere and the influences from our Celtic past, which are still carried in each one of us as part of whom we are and where we come from. Voices, quoted above, is a collaboration between Celtic Thunder Musical Director/Composer David Munro and world-renowned song writer Brendan Graham, who also wrote the international hit “You Raise Me Up”.
The set of Mythology is big; it’s dramatic and imposing. The new and the old combine. Modern catalyst images are projected onto ancient monolithic standing stones, a giant Celtic cross takes center stage and the tempo of the music is strongly echoed in the theatrical and moody lighting.
Mythology is by far Celtic Thunder’s most impressive production to date, bar none. All six Celtic Thunder principals feature prominently (Neil Byrne, Ryan Kelly, Keith Harkin, George Donaldson, Emmet Cahill, Colm Keegan) in Mythology, from haunting solo numbers such as “Carrickfergus”, “The Isle of Inisfree”, “Scarlet Ribbons”, “Katie”, “Carolina Rua” and “Now We Free” to rousing ensembles “The Boys are Back in Town”, “The Star of the County Down” and “The Rocky Road to Dublin”. There are also great original tracks that were written especially for Mythology, such as the opening number Voices, “Hunter’s Moon” performed in the show by Ryan Kelly and “My Land” the anthem which is the show’s powerful finale.
Celtic Thunder MYTHOLOGY will air on Public Television across the USA in March 2013. The CD & DVD releases will be out on February 19th. They will be available in Walmart, Target, Costco, Barnes & Noble & Amazon.
The special Deluxe 2 Disc versions will only be available as pledge gifts from Public Television Stations and the Celtic Thunder website.
