I had never heard of Celtic Woman before, but when Mr. Serious saw the CD, he mentioned that they are frequently on PBS. So, needless to say, I didn’t really know what to expect when I popped the CD into our van’s CD player.
I was very pleasantly surprised. The music is fun and light-hearted and yet sounds very modern. The very first song is actually Sting’s “Field of Dreams.” It also features a fun song from Lion King (one of the first Disney soundtracks I memorized). Their music can definitely reach many audiences as they switch from Irish classics, to cover songs to their own original compositions. It was definitely a fun mix of songs.
They are on tour right now. I’ve read some rave reviews of their concerts and I was bummed that I wasn’t able to attend. You can check their tour dates to see if they are performing near you. Look at their crazy and modern set. It sure looks fun to me!
