The first DVD from the show, entitled "VOYAGE" was released in February 2012. Following the incredible success of their last tour, Celtic Thunder has continued exploring their Irish and Celtic roots in their latest Public Television Special and DVD releases. The ensemble performances in this DVD highlight the diversity of Irish music and song, from the sweet nostalgia of Song For The Mira to the upbeat fan favorites Place In The Choir and Ireland's Call and the raucous Irish Party song, Seven Drunken Nights. "VOYAGE II" features great duet and solo performances also, Keith and Neil face off on guitars in "Whiskey In The Jar", while guest artist 13 year old Daniel Furlong joins with Keith to perform a tongue in cheek version of the Disney classic "You've Got A Friend In Me". The audience claps along to lively solo performances such as Emmet Cahill's "My Irish Molly-O", and Ryan Kelly's take on the Garth Brook hit Friends "In Low Places". George Donaldson delivers a great version of the much-loved ballad "Cat's In The Cradle", a tribute to his music idol, Harry Chapin. The "VOYAGE" TV Special and the companion DVD bring the viewer on the same journey of musical development that each soloist has undertaken since the beginning of Celtic Thunder four years ago. "VOYAGE" is also the first Celtic Thunder Special where we see all the vocalists pick up a different instrument. Keith, Neil, Ryan and George all play guitar on this DVD while Emmet ups the tempo with the tin whistle and fiddle. Celtic Thunder "VOYAGE II" takes a journey through the varying styles of Celtic and Irish music, from old and traditional standards such as Song for The Mira and Danny Boy to more contemporary, modern Irish songs "Moondance" and "Whiskey In The Jar", stopping at lively ensembles "Place in the Choir" and 'Seven Drunken Nights" along the way. "VOYAGE II" also offers soulful ballads in "This Is The Moment" and classic love songs such as the "All Out Of Love" and the "Always A Woman" to round out the DVD. Song For The Mira (Keith) Out on the Mira on warm afternoons, Old men go fishing with black line and spoons; (George) And if they catch nothing they never complain, And I wish I was with them again. (Emmet) As boys in the boats call to girls on the shore, Teasing the ones that they dearly adore; (Neil) And into the evening the courting begins, And I wish I was with them again. (Chorus) Tutti Can you imagine a piece of the universe, More fit for princes and kings? I'll trade you ten of your cities for Marion Bridge, And the pleasure it brings. (Daniel) Out on the Mira on soft summer nights, Bonfires blaze to the children's delight; (Neil) They dance 'round the flames singing songs with their friends, And I wish I was with them again. (Emmet) And over the ashes the stories are told, Of witches and werewolves and Oak Island gold; (George) Stars on the river-face sparkle and spin, I wish I was with them again. (Chorus) Tutti Can you imagine a piece of the universe, More fit for princes and kings? I'll trade you ten of your cities for Marion Bridge, And the pleasure it brings. (Keith) Out on the Mira, the people are kind, They'll treat you to homebrew, and help you unwind; (George) And if you come broken they'll see that you mend, I wish I was with them again. (Emmet) Now I'll conclude with a wish you go well, (Daniel) Sweet be your dreams, and your happiness swell; (Neil) I'll leave you here, for my journey begins, (Tutti) I'm going to be with them again.
