Don't miss the inspiring performances of this timeless music complete with bagpipers, dancers, a full band and choir in an exceptional production with the angelic voices of Celtic Woman.
Named Celtic Woman in order to represent the essence of a Celtic female performer, the group's 2014 tour features four sublimely gifted Irish women - vocalists Susan McFadden, Lynn Hilary and newest member Mairéad Carlin along with Celtic violinist Máiréad Nesbitt. The lineup of performers has rotated since the group began, but the signature sound of Celtic Woman has never changed. Watch the stunning trailer for Celtic Woman's Emerald Tour HERE.
