Emmet Cahill is 25 years old and hails from Mullingar in County Westmeath in Ireland. His musical journey began with a piano lesson when he was just five years old. By the time he turned seven, Emmet had begun to have his voice professionally trained and he later went on to win a music scholarship for high school in Mullingar. Emmet spent the next five years intensively studying and playing music. At school he furthered his studies in piano, organ, violin and vocal training, but singing was always his true choice. He continued his education at the prestigious Royal Irish Academy of Music where he received a university degree in Music Performance. Emmet has been cast in many stage productions and has performed on stage at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin and as a soloist at the National Concert Hall. He is an avid sports fan and has twice sung the Irish national anthem at Croke Park Stadium in Dublin in front of crowds of 90,000. Emmet has also performed for the former President of Ireland Mary McAleese and has sung at several international rugby games in Dublin’s new Aviva Stadium.

He was awarded The John McCormack Bursary for the most Promising Young Tenor, was named the most promising young singer at the Royal Irish Academy of Music, was a multiple prizewinner at the National Feis Ceoil singing competition in Ireland and was approached by Celtic Thunder producer Sharon Browne and invited to join the show. He recorded and toured with Celtic Thunder from 2011 to 2014. The baritone of Celtic Thunder shows, Emmett performed belting solo numbers showcasing the richness of his voice. During his time with Celtic Thunder Emmet recorded the Voyage and Mythology CDs and Public TV specials as well as the Heritage and Holiday Symphony CDs. In Mythology, Emmet performed the inspirational love song Always There, the haunting Irish ballad Isle of Inisfree and a uniquely beautiful version of the all-time favorite Danny Boy. While Emmet has carved out his own unique identity as a solo artist over the past number of years, he is still an integral member or Celtic Thunder and continues to tour with the show. Emmet was part of the 2nd Celtic Thunder Cruise in 2014 and is part of the Legacy 2016 cast.
After an extensive 72-city 2016 tour of the United States and Canada with Celtic Thunder, Emmet resumed his solo career in 2017 touring the United States and Canada including two symphony orchestra concerts with the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra.
