As Ireland commemorates the events of 100 years ago that led to the nation’s independence, Celtic Woman offers a rousing version of “Óró sé do bheatha ‘bhaile,” an anthem closely connected with the 1916 uprising. The all-female ensemble also delivers other timeless traditional Irish songs such as “Bean Pháidín” and “Siúil A Run” highlighting the beauty of Ireland’s heritage and its Gaelic language. Alongside newer songs such as “Walk Beside Me” and “The Whole Of The Moon,” the show also features re-imagined renditions of audience favorites “Amazing Grace” and “You Raise Me Up.”
Celtic Woman showcases three world-class vocalists Mairéad Carlin, Susan McFadden and newest member Éabha McMahon and brilliant Celtic violinist Máiréad Nesbitt accompanied by a group of equally talented musicians and dancers whose exceptional skills and high energy bring a fresh fusion to centuries of musical and cultural tradition.
