Presently made up of four singers, Celtic Woman is an all-female Irish musical group birthed by the trio of David Kavanagh, Sharon Browne, and David Downes. Regarded as being ¨Riverdance for the voice,¨ a term used to describe the Irish stage show, the group members are; Mairead Carlin, Susan McFadden, Mairead Nesbitt , and Eabha McMahon (the newest member of the team.)
Established in 2004, the pioneer members of the group were five Irish female musicians who had not previously performed together. Downes and his team groomed them into the first assemble of the group known as “Celtic Woman.”
Over the years, the group’s line-up has changed, and cumulatively, they have sold over 9 million records all over the world. Some of their hits include; Celtic Woman, Celtic Woman: A Christmas Celebration, Celtic Woman: A New Journey, Celtic Woman: The Greatest Journey, Celtic Woman: Songs from the Heart, Celtic Woman: Lullaby, Celtic Woman: Believe, Celtic Woman: Home for Christmas, Celtic Woman: Emerald – Musical Gems, and Celtic Woman: Destiny.
When asked how the group members got along, Lisa Kelly, a former member of the group commented thus; ¨we get along because we’re so different. I think people are always looking for a ‘Desperate Housewives’ story, that they all hate each other and nobody actually gets along. It’s all for show. And the truth of the matter is – it is not. The reality is we do all get along. We are like sisters, best friends.”
Celtic Woman has performed three tours in America, with additional performances overseas. To rap off year 2015, they have the Home for Christmas US Symphony Tour, scheduled to commence on December 16 all through December 21.
The group will kick-start their 2016 tour – Destiny European Tour, on the 3rd of February and will conclude the tour on the 20th of same month. The Destiny North American Tour will start on March 4 at TPAC, in Nashville, TN, with the concluding concert taking place on July 2 at Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, NJ.
