Colm Keegan and Laura Durrant – of world number one singing band Celtic Thunder – will play a gig in Oran Mor Glasgow to support the Children’s Wood project to get children out into nature within their community.
This is Colm’s first solo tour, off the back of his single The Dance, (number one in itunes). The gig, in Oran Mor, will premier their East Coast American show, which they leave for next week.
Celtic Thunder has a large worldwide following. They have been top in the Australia DVD charts for the last three years for different shows, and have performed for Barak Obama and in the Pentagon.

The Children’s Wood project has been working to get children outside into nature over the last few years, over 100 volunteers work to make this happen in the Maryhill area of glasgow. This event will raise funds to train local people in Forest School level 2 so that we can provide a free high quality outdoor learning for all ages of children in the community.
