Five Member Female Irish Troop
Taking the Celtic World on a Classic Journey

 

 

 

 

Five Member Female Irish Troop
Arrive In Time For St. Patrick’s Day
Concert Available on DVD and CD
through Manhattan Records on March 1st
Will Be Broadcast Nationally on PBS in March 2005

Since the dawn of Irish civilization, some ten thousand years ago, a tradition of song has greeted new dawns and celebrated life. Haunting voices over mountains, valleys and lakes carry with them ancient tales they now cherish. It would be hard to find more pure and graceful voices than those of the Celtic Woman. Alone or united, their voices stay with you, capturing the essence of traditional and contemporary Irish music.

The five-member collective known as Celtic Woman will release their debut live concert on CD & DVD thru Manhattan Records (EMI) on March 1st. The show is the realisation of a dream for Sharon Browne, Managing Director of Celtic Collections – One of Ireland’s most successful independent record labels.

The women are lead by the talents of David Downes (Musical Director, Conductor, Composer and Arranger). Downes, who is a prodigious young Irish star, had previously worked as musical director of Riverdance. Celtic Woman was created to have a forum to launch the very special talents of four young Irish female vocalists: Chloё, Lisa, Méav, Órla, along with an exciting young violinist Máiréad Nesbitt.

Downes then garnered the forces of the Irish Film Orchestra, Aontas Choral Group, and a host of exciting Irish musicians including percussionists Ray Fean and Robbie Casserly to backup the vocalists and create the instrumentation behind this truly moving and inspirational show.

Celtic Woman portrays the unique voices and styles of each of the Girls as Soloists along with fantastic Ensemble numbers. Performing the most beautiful and best-loved songs in the musical repertoire, Celtic Woman’s singers put a new spin on such timeless Irish classics such as: “Danny Boy,” “Ave Maria” to more contemporary songs such as Enya’s “Orinoco Flow” to Clannad’s “Harry’s Game.”

During the performance, violinist Máiréad Nesbitt, engages in a musical battle with two handsome Irish Bodhrán drummers and has the audience dancing out of their seats with her own expressive interpretation of the liveliest Irish dance music and haunting slow airs.

Premiering in the United States in March, PBS will debut a spectacular hour and a half show the Celtic Woman taped in front of a Dublin audience at the prestigious Helix Centre late last year.

Celtic Woman will bring you to your feet over and over again and audiences will rise and cheer as loudly when they embark on a U.S. tour later this year.

In the meantime, you’ll be able to gather your loved ones around during the St. Patrick Day’s Festivities to watch and listen to the Celtic Woman when this concert becomes available on DVD and CD through Manhattan Records (EMI) on March 1st.

CAPITAL CELTIC REVIEW:

Do not miss this first class group of wonderful Irish singers.  Their CD is loaded with a wonderful selection of musical scores well arranged and excellently presented.  As I listened to their Celtic Woman CD I could imagine a mystical journey in the beautiful hills and vales of Ireland.  Their talent and the combination of their voices and music is a Celtic heaven to the ears.

As one who likes the Classical and Traditional Irish Music I would love to see these Celtic Ladies sometime perform on stage with the Celtic Tenors.  Now that truly would be a Celtic heaven!

If you can I would highly recommend attending their live concert tour.

Whither you attend a live concert or not you need to purchase their Concert DVD.  It includes the complete concert of twenty-two songs performed in Dublin and additional features with interviews of each member.

Celtic Woman is a fantastic group of talented ladies lead by David Downes a gifted musical director and composer.
