Emmet Cahill is 28 years old and hails from Mullingar, County Wetmeath, Ireland. At age 5 he began learning piano and his vocal training began at age 7. In high school he received a 5 year “Schola Cantorum” music scholarship. At 18 he began his formal training when he attended the Royal Irish Academy of Music where he received a BA in Music Performance.
In 2010 Emmet was awarded the ‘John McCormack Bursary’ for most promising young tenor and named “Most Promising Young Singer” at the Royal Irish Academy of Music. In addition, he is a multiple prizewinner at the National Feis Ceoil signing competition in Ireland and was chosen to perform at a special concert for the president of Ireland in 2009.
In 2011 Emmet began touring with the international Irish music group, Celtic Thunder. Over the years Emmet has enjoyed touring throughout the United States, Canada and Australia with Celtic Thunder. Individually and with the group, Emmet has appeared on many radio and TV shows such as PBS, QVC and the Today Show and most notably by special invitation for the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.
