Singer-songwriter Colm Keegan of Celtic Thunder renown brought a brand new solo show, “The History of Ireland through Music,” to Rory Dolan’s in Yonkers.
Keegan combined a talk about Irish history with performance of songs associated with specific eras and major events throughout Irish history. He gave historical context to all of the songs in the show, and gave his audiences new insight into the stories and the references in the songs.
The 29-year-old Dubliner, who now lives in Glasgow, Scotland, with his wife and two children, left full-time work with Celtic Thunder in 2016 to complete his teaching certification.
He has undergraduate degrees in both music and Irish and now a postgraduate Masters in Education.
Through his CKonLine Teaching website he teaches, on a rotating basis, both group and individual classes in Music Theory, Irish History, Irish Myths and Legends, and the Irish Language. Most of his students are from the United States, Canada and Australia.
