Celtic Woman a Graceful Production

Celtic WomanIn 2005, a new Irish-themed show entered the touring scene.  Debuting in Cleveland, Ohio at that time, the show started appearing on public television and was soon amassing fans across the country.  It wouldn’t take long before the hit show made itself known overseas as well.  So what exactly made this entity such a hit with fans?

The show’s focus is on the four female lead vocalists who deliver their melodic talent with ease through a variety of songs such as “Fields of Gold,” “You Raise Me Up,” and the Irish favorite, “Danny Boy.”  Their beautiful voices are supported by six backup vocalists, two drummers, an uilleann piper, a bass guitarist, a lead guitarist who spreads his time between the mandolin, acoustic guitar and electric guitars, a pianist, and lastly, a Highland bagpiper.

Celtic WomanOh!  How could I forget?  There is also a violinist who just happens to be none other than Máiréad Nesbitt, one of the original über-sexy fiddlers in Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance.  Nesbitt’s stage appearances dot the landscape of the evening’s performance and add energy to the subdued, classy show.  Her ability with the violin is uncanny and she spins, hops, and darts across the stage so effortlessly while her bow never leaves the strings.

With the exception of the backup vocalists, each member of the show gets their own moment in the spotlight, which is a great experience for the audience.  This focus of different cast members shows the masses just how accomplished each Celtic Woman performer is.  Whether it’s a soprano note of the singers or the strum of the bass guitar from one of the band members, this show is truly a treat for its patrons.

Running at approximately two hours, which includes a twenty-minute intermission, Celtic Woman: Songs from the Heart is a fun, laid back show that offers the music of Ireland amidst pounding drum beats, golden voices and some very beautiful women.  Now in its fifth year, this is one show that fulfills your box office dollars with its entertainment value.  If Celtic Woman isn’t coming to your town any time soon, I recommend one of the show’s many dvd’s or soundtracks.
