Celtic Woman Giveaway – Signed Copies!

CelticWoman

I always get a tiny thrill when I’m flipping channels and catch a glimpse of the beaming faces of Celtic Woman.  Since I have a fondness for all things Celtic from the music to the knotwork, they naturally make me happy.

Their new album, Believe, is an enchanting mixture of Irish songs, classics, and modern popular music, all remixed in their signature sound.  It has moments of great joy, of reflection, and of inspiration – I love the emotional journey that their music creates.

They were in Birmingham on tour a couple of weeks ago, and my friend Jennifer was fortunate enough to be able to attend.  I asked her to tell me about the concert, and I have to say, I’m now a bit jealous.

Here’s her review…

A couple of weeks ago, my sweet husband took me to the Celtic Woman concert for my Valentine’s Day gift. I’ve seen them numerous times on television, and have always wanted to see them live. Oddly enough though, I was a little nervous about finally getting the chance. I think I was afraid that after wanting it for so long, the experience might not live up to my expectations.

It turns out I was worried for nothing. Not only did it meet my expectations, it blew them away! It wasn’t just a concert, it was a complete immersion into the culture of Ireland. Not just the songs, but also the instruments (fiddle – by the absolutely amazing Mairead, Irish flute, bodhran, bagpipes), the Irish dancer, Craig Ashurst (who was completely thrilling to watch), the way they spoke to the audience and drew us into what makes Ireland – and Celtic Woman – so charming, so beautiful, and in a way, so mysterious.

I don’t have to tell most of you their voices are angelic. I want to be a Celtic Woman so I can sing like that. My 2 favorite songs of the night had to be “Ave Maria”, sung by Chloe Agnew, and a very traditional Irish song called “Teir Abhaile Riu” – sung by all 3 of the ladies. They even taught the audience the chorus to a traditional Scottish drinking song, called “Green Grow the Rushes-O”, and had us sing along with them, which I thought was quite fun. The concert ended with a very rousing jig played by the instrumentalists, and had us walking out of the concert hall with a definite bounce in our step.

It was a wonderful concert, and just when we thought it was over, we were met with the bagpiper in the lobby, playing for us all as we exited. I hope I am able to see them again the next time they come in town. You should plan on it, too.
