Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum international music group “CELTIC WOMAN” is the most successful all-female group in Irish history with one billion online streams, over four million tickets sold, 12 consecutive Billboard number ones, and 10 million albums sold. They will be performing at the Times – Union Center on March 5, 2020. Celebration – The 15th Anniversary Tour. Celtic Woman Celebration will visit nearly 90 North American cities in 2020, kicking off February 27 at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, Florida.
The four fantastic CELTIC WOMAN soloists – Tara McNeill on fiddle and Irish harp who weaves her magic around the spine-tingling voices of Mairéad Carlin, Éabha McMahon and Megan Walsh – touch the hearts of a global audience with the centuries-old Irish tradition of telling stories through song: stories of the land, stories of love, and stories of dancing that bring a piece of Ireland to audiences everywhere.
It has been reported that Chloë Agnew is re-joining Celtic Woman as Special Guest Artist for Celebration 15th Anniversary North American Tour! As you may recall, Chloë was one of the original performers joining the group when she was just 15 years old for their first ever PBS Special, and toured with them around the world for nearly a decade. She returns to celebrate a very special milestone, sharing the stage with Mairéad, Tara, and Megan as they bring 15 years of song and story-telling to their North American audiences. According to their website, Éabha McMahon will be taking leave from the group to pursue her own projects.
Joined by a stunning band of two pipers, two drummers, traditional step-dancers, and backing vocalists, CELTIC WOMAN celebrates Ireland’s rich musical and cultural heritage and combines the finest musical talent with epic stage productions to present a unique, inspiring live experience.
The band, favorites on PBS stations, transports audiences to Ireland with the siren call of Orinoco Flow, the playful energy of Teir Abhaile Riu, the power of the uplifting anthem You Raise me Up, the soaring harmonies of Danny Boy, and a bagpiper-led Amazing Grace. This magical evening underscores why CELTIC WOMAN has been described as being “Riverdance for the voice.”
