Global music sensation Celtic Woman returns to North America in 2014 with its newest show, The Emerald Tour, in support of a new album and DVD, "Emerald: Musical Gems."
The all-female ensemble will be at the Peabody Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27.
Celtic Woman's elaborate new show spotlights reimagined performances of fan favorites from the group's treasure chest of Celtic songs. A celebration of the Emerald Isles' rich musical heritage, The Emerald Tour features "Mo Ghile Mear" and "Dulaman," "She Moves Thru the Fair," "Caladonia," "Danny Boy" and "The Voice." Also featured are new interpretations of "Amazing Grace" and "You Raise Me Up."
During The Emerald Tour, Celtic Woman's angelic voices and violin virtuosity will be joined by world class musicians, the Aontas Choir, bagpipers and championship Irish dancers, all under the direction of Emmy-nominated music producer David Downes, former music director for Irish stage show Riverdance.
