CELTIC WOMAN: ANCIENT LAND Comes to Van Wezel
CELTIC WOMAN, the Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum international music group, brings a brand-new live show, Ancient Land, to the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall on Sunday, March 3 at 3 p.m. The North American tour comes on the heels of the release of the 13th studio album of the same name. Tickets for Ancient Land are on sale now!
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. A brand-new concert spectacular recently aired nationally on PBS stations. 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.
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."
