Uniting Catholic and Protestant, Northern and Southern, the three Celtic Tenors embody harmony in more ways than one. Picked up by EMI after a spur-of-the-moment audition in 2000, Matthew Gilsenan, James Nelson, and Daryl Simpson soon exploded onto the world stage by channeling the works of songsmiths including Freddie Mercury and Roy Orbison through their lilting operatics. Although Irish-flavored, dulcet-toned versions of popular songs ranging from “All Out of Love” to “Lay Down Sally” remain a specialty, the 2011 album Feels Like Home proves the traditional tunes of the Emerald Isle are never far from the trio’s hive mind. Inspired by Marin Center designer Frank Lloyd Wright’s enjoinder to suit architecture to setting, the Marin Veterans’ Memorial Auditorium’s curving walls create cozy acoustics inside, and outside help it blend in with its lagoon-laden surroundings as seamlessly as Groucho Marx in a disguise shop.
