Named the #1 Billboard World Artist for the fifth time in eight years in 2013, Celtic Woman combines the talents of four gifted Irish women—vocalists Mairead Carlin, Lisa Lambe and Susan McFadden, and violinist Máiréad Nesbitt.
Sunday Night 12th January 2014, the Celtic women played to an excited crowd at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre. It was their first Australian show of the ‘Celtic Women World Tour’ which has seen the ladies travel all over America, Asia, The United Kingdom and now Australia. Having sold nearly three million concert tickets worldwide, Celtic Woman has won a dedicated and loyal audience, where their elaborately staged, visually stunning concert tours consistently draw sellout crowds.
Celtic Woman’s dazzling performances combine the sounds and sensibility of Irish traditional music with memorable original compositions and contemporary pop standards. The 2014 tour boasts an exciting new stage production and the return of such enduring fan favourites as “You Raise Me Up” and “Orinoco Flow.”
