The Irish music-sensation
Songs from the Heart – live 2011
Over 6 million albums sold worldwide, 90 weeks at #1 in the World Music Charts and sold out tours with over 1.5 million visitors in nearly all continents. The success of Celtic Woman, founded in 2004, is without any doubt more than impressive. And finally, in 2011 the magical singers will return to German and Austrian stages after three years.
The love for Irish music and culture is still unbeaten, and so Celtic Woman turned into an international, worldwide incomparable phenomenon. The impressive singer and their virtuous violinist combine traditional Irish music with modern songs from artists such as Phil Collins, Mariah Carey or Sting. But especially the fascinating live-performances of the singers is an expression of their art and offers the frame for their extraordinary talents to form a very special work of art. The show offers room for the magical voices of the singers: either as soloists, with every singer presenting a very distinctive type as well as a very emotional ensemble. The current line up features the celestial vocals of Lisa Kelly, Chloë Agnew and Lisa Lambe and the dynamic inventiveness of Celtic Violinist Máiréad Nesbitt. Their German tour in June will visit Frankfurt, Dresden, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Bielefeld, Hannover, Wien, München, Stuttgart and Hamburg. Official sales will start Friday, Dec. 3rd, 2011.
Countless and acclaimed appearances at New York Radio City Music Hall, The Greek Theatre Los Angeles, Carnegie Hall in New York, or Orchard Hall in Tokio and The Point Theatre Dublin, are the highlight of every season. A Grammy-Nomination for their TV-Special "Songs From The Heart, Live at Powerscourt House & Gardens" underlines one more time the outstanding quality of the production, and honours the work of the artistes and their musical director David Downes at the same time.
On 21.01.2011 the new album „Songs from the Heart" (EMI) will be released in Germany and will be featured in their upcoming tour in June. With their very own and gracious versions of songs such as Fields of gold, Amazing grace or You`ll be in my heart, they will enlighten the concert-halls. For the German version of the album, Celtic Woman also offers some special songs, such as the bonus-tracks "Forever Young" (the global chart-breaker of the Eighties Munich Band Alphaville). A special thanks for their German-speaking friends is given by Celtic Woman with two German songs, which are "Wenn du in meinen Träumen bei mir bist" (a German version of the evergreen "Over The Rainbow") and the Silbermond-Song "Symphonie". An indeed touching gesture of the sympathetic Multi-Platinum-selling-musicians.
And you will also be able to experience Celtic Woman in December, when the group will be appearing at the annual José Carreras Gala. Here they will celebrate their Irish roots and will warm everybody’s hearts with songs full of love and hope. One could sum it up by saying: heavenly beautiful!
