It was a decade ago that Celtic Woman first traveled from Ireland to America to introduce millions of new fans to the group’s fresh fusion of Irish musical tradition, contemporary songcraft and state-of-the-art stage production. 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, gospel standards, classical favorites and contemporary material alongside memorable original compositions, bridging the past and present with the distinctive grace and style for which Celtic Woman has become known.
In addition to its success in America, Celtic Woman has achieved platinum-level sales in eight other countries. The group 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. In the U.S., 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!
