“Glee” actor, Celtic Thunder vocalist and international performer Damian McGinty brings his “Live In The Moment” tour to the stage at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27, at 49 Franklin’s Mystic Theater in Rumford

McGinty is a multi-genre singer/songwriter from Derry, Northern Ireland, who now calls Nashville his home. He currently splits his time as an independent solo artist and a principal performer for the internationally renowned group Celtic Thunder, sprinkled in with acting jobs and other pursuits.

Whether performing at the White House, on TV in his role as Rory Flanagan on “Glee,” on the big screen as a leading actor, on CDs and DVDs and on tour with Celtic Thunder, or at a house concert for an intimate crowd of fifty people, McGinty’s smooth baritone-to-tenor vocals and stirring harmonies, contagious stage energy and charisma, and kind, generous spirit make him a fan favorite. After Scot Grassette of 49 Franklin was approached by McGinty’s management team he said, “We’re very fortunate to have such a powerhouse of a performer reaching out to us. I think the people of the River Valley will be blown away by this incredible vocalist, this is a very special opportunity.”

Over the years, McGinty’s career has taken him around the world on nearly two dozen tours, including nine tours with Celtic Thunder and five self-managed solo tours. He has performed in two seasons of “Glee,” one season of “The Glee Project,” was the lead in the family Christmas movie “Santa Fake,” was a feature performer in eight Celtic Thunder PBS specials, a highlighted performer in two additional PBS specials, and appears on eight Celtic Thunder DVDs. He has appeared solo and as part of an ensemble in a dozen Celtic Thunder CDs, and as an independent artist has released three full-length CDs, four EPs, and multiple singles. His voice is featured in the Circle Round storytelling podcast “The Piper and The Pooka.” With Celtic Thunder, he performed at the White House and Madison Square Garden, and as a solo artist he was featured as Elvis Duran’s Artist of the Month on “The Today Show.” Check out his new album “Moments” and other projects on his website www.damianmcginty.com.
