The enchanting Irish musical ensemble Celtic Woman returns to America for an expansive four-month concert tour, beginning on February 21 following on the heels of the group’s sold-out Christmas Celebration tour. In addition, Celtic Woman was recently named Billboard Magazine’s number one World Music Artist in their year-end issue. Celtic Woman plays the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, May 4 and tickets are on sale now.
Celtic Woman combines the talents of four gifted Irish women – vocalists Chloë Agnew, Lisa Lambe and Susan McFadden, and violinist Máiréad Nesbitt – whose dazzling performances combine the sounds and sensibility of Irish traditional music with memorable original compositions and contemporary pop standards. The 2013 tour boasts an exciting new stage production and the return of such enduring fan favorites as “You Raise Me Up” and “Orinoco Flow.”
Since its formation in 2004, Celtic Woman has emerged as both a spectacular commercial success and a global cultural phenomenon. The group’s uplifting mix of timeless tradition and contemporary craft has transcended national and cultural borders to touch the hearts of a devoted international fan base, who have embraced Celtic Woman’s hugely successful public television specials and made their CDs and DVDs into multi-platinum best-sellers. The group’s albums have sold more than seven million copies around the world. Celtic Woman’s two album releases in 2012, the acclaimed “Believe” CD/DVD and the holiday-themed CD “Home For Christmas,” both debuted at number one on Billboard’s World Music chart – marking eight-consecutive chart-topping albums for the group.
Celtic Woman recently made their soap opera debut as featured guests in multiple episodes of the CBS daytime drama “The Bold and the Beautiful.”
Having sold nearly three million concert tickets worldwide, Celtic Woman has won a dedicated and loyal audience in America, where their elaborately staged, visually stunning concert tours consistently draw sellout crowds. Singing songs of love, loss, hope and inspiration, Celtic Woman celebrates the emotional resonance of Ireland’s centuries-old musical and cultural heritage while taking advantage of the limitless options of state-of-the-art production. The result is a breathtaking musical and theatrical experience to be enjoyed by multiple generations of concertgoers.
