Celtic Woman's 10th Anniversary World Tour celebrates a decade of timeless music and dance from the Emerald Isles that already has captivated millions. Showcasing three world-class vocalists and a dazzling Celtic violinist, the multi-platinum all-female group performs such traditional Irish classics as "Danny Boy," and "Mo Ghile Mhear," alongside contemporary favorites like "You Raise Me Up" and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in its distinctive signature style. The international touring powerhouse is accompanied by a 15-member ensemble that includes Irish dancers, bagpipers and a full band playing an array of traditional Celtic instruments, including bodhran, hand-crafted tin whistle, bouzouki and Uilleann pipes.

Last month, Celtic Woman welcomed its newest member, vocalist Éabha McMahon, a former member of Anuna and five-time Dublin champion in the Fairview Feis Ceoil. Celtic Woman vocalists have alternated throughout 2015 with original member Máiréad Nesbitt at the helm. Honoring 10 years together, audiences already have welcomed limited appearances from Lynn Hilary, Alex Sharpe and Meav alongside more recent members Susan McFadden, Máiréad Carlin and now Éabha. "We couldn't think of a better way to share our appreciation and love for our fans," said Nesbitt.

Celtic Woman made its television debut in 2005 with a sold-out concert in Dublin, which was filmed and broadcast in the United States on PBS. Although initially intended as a one-time-only event, the uplifting performance was so warmly received by the public that the group immediately followed with a debut concert tour across the United States. Since its PBS debut, Celtic Woman has performed to over three million fans, and has continued to sell out prestigious venues around the world, covering 48 U.S. states, while expanding its reach to six continents and 23 countries.

Celtic Woman has sold more than eight million copies of its nine CDs and eight DVDs, while its eight public television specials have ranked among PBS' most-watched music programs. Each of Celtic Woman's nine CDs - the most recent being 2013's Emerald Musical Gems - has debuted at #1 on Billboard's World Album chart, where the group has occupied the top slot for a record-breaking 112 consecutive weeks. Having been named Billboard magazine's World Albums Artist of the Year six times, Celtic Woman also has scored two Top 10 debuts on Billboard's main album chart and five Top Five DVDs on Billboard's Top Video chart, as well as achieving platinum-level sales in nine different countries. The group has performed for three U.S. presidents and has made high-profile appearances on the prime-time smash Dancing with the Stars and the daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful.
