About the Artists
Named CELTIC WOMAN in order to represent the essence of a Celtic female performer, the lineup of performers has evolved in the years since the group’s inception, but the signature sound of Celtic Woman has remained consistent. Celtic Woman made its television debut in 2005 with a sold-out performance in Dublin, which was filmed and broadcast in the United States on PBS.
Although initially intended as a one-time-only event, the concert was so warmly received by the public that the group immediately followed with a debut concert tour in the United States. Since then, Celtic Woman's uplifting music has touched the hearts of a devoted audience in North America, while expanding its reach across the globe to six continents and 23 countries.
Having been named Billboard magazine’s World Albums Artist of the Year six times, the multitalented ensemble has released nine albums and eight DVDs selling more than nine million copies of its releases around the world, achieving platinum-level sales in 10 countries while their eight public television specials have ranked among the most-watched music programs on the network.
Celtic Woman has performed for three U.S. presidents and appeared twice at the White House, including the National Christmas Tree Lighting. The group has made high-profile appearances on such television shows as "Dancing with the Stars" and the daytime drama "The Bold and the Beautiful." For more, visit celticwoman.com.
