This is the first dvd for this group who are totally awesome! All the guys in the group have their own style, their own look and their own personality yet blend their voices in wonderful harmony. They can sing anything from Celtic music, show tunes, pop, country, folk, to gospel. They not only sing as a group but their solos and duets are great too. It is a very entertaining dvd that I watch over and over and never get tired of listening to.If you are a music lover, I would definitely give this group a try.
Brilliant vocals; fun for the whole family

"As a singer myself (and one of Irish heritage on top of that) I can tell you I was in awe of the vocal chops shown by the men in this group. There is of course, Paul the operatic tenor who could have a brilliant career in classical music but also can be achingly tender on love ballads and throw a bit more timbre in his voice to put some testosterone into the folk songs. Then there is George the baritone, so rich and mellow and gentle on the family ballads he sings and with the best brogue of them all. Blond twenty-something Keith whose slightly nasal but very sweet tenor is God's gift to those Irish protest songs and pop songs. And then precocious and precious Damian, all of 14, who sounds at least 10 years older than he is and with so much depth and chest resonance-- where did he learn to do that? Finally, Ryan who seems less vocally gifted but I suspect that is only because of the company he is in, but has more than enough smolder and attitude to make up for it. And then when they blend their voices together on the songs of national pride and longing somehow they manage to sound like a string ensemble. There were literally chills down my back and tears in my eyes. These guys are good, really good.
About all I can add to what others have written is to tell you that my daughters, aged 6 and 7, absolutely love this music as much as I do. It is now replacing the Wiggles (thank God!) as our favorite music to play in the car. My 7 year old practically melted into a big puddle on the floor when she saw young Damian. She thinks he is the cutest thing since Zac Efron! So this CD has been a great experience to share with my kids and teach them about our family history."
Not Just Good - GREAT!

"I am so glad to have discovered this sensational singing group. I must have watched this program at least 5 times during PBS's pledge week. It's simply amazing. The music, the arrangements, the staging and the talent of 5 superb performers. Ranging in age from 14 to 39, and sporting very different musical styles, they all stand out individually - Paul with his magnificent tenor, George with his resonant baritone, Keith with his folk-tinged delivery, Ryan with his theatrics and, of course, Damian. (I had to adjust my TV until I was satisfied that voice was emanating from a 14 year old body!) And the ensemble numbers are every bit as good! Brought a tear to my eye, in fact! Kudos to WLIW for the production and to Phil Coulter for the musical direction and arrangements. I'm looking forward to seeing them in concert - IF I can get tickets - and for any future releases."
Wow, what a powerful show!

"I was just flipping thru stations with my remote, and came upon this wonderful concert on PBS the other night. I was blown away by the diverse voices of the 5 singers, individually and collectivley. There was a great variety of songs, traditional Irish, contemporary, original. When they sang "Ireland's Call" , a Phil Coulter original, it made me proud to be the Irishman I am! I will be ordering the DVD for sure."
