It was a decade ago that Celtic Woman first introduced millions of new fans to the group’s fresh fusion of Irish musical tradition, contemporary songcraft and state-of-the-art stage production. The group made its debut on televsion in 2005 with a sold-out performance at The Helix in Dublin, which was filmed and broadcast in the United States on PBS. Although initially intended as a one-time-only event, the concert was so warmly received by the public that the group continued to perform and record. Since then, Celtic Woman’s uplifting music has touched the hearts of a devoted audience that’s embraced the group’s massively popular public television specials and made the group’s CDs and DVDs into multi-platinum best-sellers.
The 10th Anniversary Celebration showcases four gifted Irish women – three world-class vocalists and a brilliant Celtic violinist – whose talent and charisma bring centuries of musical and cultural tradition to vibrant life. The 15 member ensemble includes a full band, bagpipers, Irish dancers and the Aontas Choir, all under the direction of Emmy®-nominated music producer David Downes. These anniversary performances will honor Celtic Woman’s musical history while looking to the future, with elaborate new set designs, glamorous new dresses and breathtaking choreography. The shows will feature a selection of fan favorites, encompassing Irish classics, contemporary standards and classical favorites alongside memorable original compositions, bridging the past and present with the distinctive grace and style for which Celtic Woman has become known.
Celtic Woman has sold more than eight million copies of its nine CDs and eight DVDs, making it the only all-female act to achieve multi-platinum success in the classical crossover and world music genres during the past decade. Each of Celtic Woman’s nine CDs – the most recent being 2013’s Emerald Musical Gems – has debuted at #1 on Billboard’s World Album chart, where the group has occupied the top slot for a record-breaking 112 consecutive weeks.
Celebrating an incredibly musical journey, Celtic Woman’s 10th Anniversary Celebration offers a one-of-a-kind concert experience that will enchant longtime fans and newcomers alike. Celtic Woman 10 Years – Join the Celebration!
