It's a good thing that I'm open to listening to new kinds of music because if not I would've missed out on an amazing group called Celtic Woman!
Celtic Woman is an internationally acclaimed all-female singing sensation featuring vocalists Chloë Agnew, Lisa Kelly, Lisa Lambe and Celtic violinist Máiréad Nesbitt.
They perform classic Irish songs, timeless pop anthems, and inspirational songs with their signature Celtic Woman twist.

Just last month (January 24th) Celtic Woman released their new project, Believe, a studio album and a companion live concert DVD (it was filmed for the first time in America in front of some of their most loyal fans during two sold-out nights at The Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA this past September). I was sent courtesy copies of both the CD and live concert DVD and as soon as I recieved them I opened the DVD and popped it in the player. I was blown away by the performances! Everything from the songs, vocals and the outfits were just beautiful. Each member of the group as her own unique and powerful voice which left me breathless. Let's face it, we live in a musical world full of auto-tuning and to be able to hear authentic voices makes you believe that there are still real singers out there.
Here are links to a streaming song of the CD and a DVD trailer:
"Teir Abdhaile Riu"
Please let me know what you think!
In addition, as if a new CD/Live DVD concert weren't enough, Celtic Woman is now currently on tour in the U.S. all the way through April 29th!
It just so happens that I'm going to see their show tonight here in VA (c/o Sneak Attack Media). I'm so excited about it and can't wait to write about it. I think I won't be able to take any pictures because the arena site states the following: No Audio, Video Recording, or Photography of any kind allowed without proper credential. I don't want to take any chances at being told to leave the camera in the car because I'm walking to the stadium, so just in case I'll leave it at home. If I can I'll sneak some pics with my phone.
Who knows, maybe Celtic Woman will be playing in your city. To be sure check out their tour schedule.
Let me know if you've had the pleasure of listening to any of the Celtic Woman songs or are planning on going to any of their concerts!
