THREE OAKS, Mich. — As is customary in Ireland, if someone starts a tune those who know it join in.

This “sing-song” style is known as an Irish music session – a type of intimate gathering Emmet Cahill plans to bring to the Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, Michigan at 8 p.m., Oct. 6.

Before carving out his own unique identity as a solo artist, Cahill spent four years touring the states with the Irish music show Celtic Thunder, resulting in three albums reaching No. 1 on the world billboard charts. After the success of his 25-city solo-tour throughout the United States earlier this year, one of Ireland’s most exciting young tenors is headed to Michiana.

“It’s going to be a night of songs and stories, as well as lots of laughs,” Cahill said. “The best part about Irish music is that most of the songs are based on stories, which is great because so many people in this area can trace their roots back to Ireland. I want the audience to the feel like they are visiting my home when they hear my music.”

Cahill will perform an all-ages show with a lively, acoustic sound featuring traditional Irish folk songs and musical theater. “There’s a little something for everyone,” Cahill said.

Growing up in a musical household, pursuing a career in music seemed like a natural path for Cahill to take. His father was a musician and his mother a singer. From the tender age of four Cahill began taking music lessons before attending formal classical training at the prestigious Royal Irish Academy of Music.

Aside from making tour stops in 30 states throughout the past year, Cahill is currently working on an eagerly anticipated debut solo album due to be released by the end 2015.

The Acorn Theater is described as a rare and remarkable performing arts venue that brings a new dimension to entertainment and the arts in Harbor Country. Although Cahill has toured around the world, he said is favorite place to perform is at intimate venues like that of the Acorn Theater where he can truly connect with his fans.

General admission tickets are available for $30 and can be purchased at the door or by visiting www.emmetcahill.com. VIP tickets are available for $45 and include a pre-show meet and greet with Cahill beginning at 6:30 p.m. The Acorn Theater is located at 107 Generations Drive, Three Oaks.
