Photo Coverage: Celtic Woman Ancient Land Tour Comes to Long Island

Celtic Woman, the Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum international music group, returns to North America with a brand-new live show, Ancient Land. The tour comes on the heels of the release of the group's 13th studio album of the same name. Celtic Woman will visit nearly 70 North American cities in 2019 . The group had one performance at Tilles Center Concert Hall on March 20, 2019.

This concert was also a PBS Event (WNET, WLIW, NJTV) and contributors that made a donation to the station were able to meet the ladies before the show.

An exciting new concert spectacular aired on PBS stations (check local listings for airdates). Filmed against the backdrop of the historic Johnstown Castle in County Wexford, Ireland, the outdoor concert special features brand new music from Ancient Land, timeless Irish favorites and unexpected cover songs.

Ancient Land is the next chapter of Celtic Woman's extraordinary musical journey, as the group continues to touch the hearts of a huge global audience with the centuries-old Irish tradition of telling stories through song: stories of the land, stories of love and stories of dancing -- songs that will bring a piece of Ireland to audiences everywhere. Continuing the remarkable legacy of introducing some of Ireland's most talented singers and musicians onto the world stage, CELTIC WOMAN features the angelic voices of Megan Walsh, Mairéad Carlin, Eabha McMahon and the breathtaking Celtic violinist Tara McNeill, accompanied by a full ensemble of musicians and dancers. CELTIC WOMAN celebrates Ireland's rich musical and cultural heritage and combines the finest musical talent with epic stage productions to present a unique, inspiring live experience.

Recorded in Real World Studios in the UK this past summer, Ancient Land is the thirteenth studio album featuring all new material for CELTIC WOMAN including original compositions "Follow Me," "Be Still" and "Love & Honour" (instrumental), Irish traditional songs "Sive," "Mná na hEireann (Women of Ireland)" and "Moorlough Shore" and some reimagined workings of contemporary songs "Long Journey Home," "Going Home" and "Homeland."
