– New Musical Enchantment from Ireland’s Famed Singing Group –

Enjoy the newest live performance from the amazing artists of Celtic Woman, who have touched hearts and lifted spirits for more than a decade. This new concert special was filmed in Dublin’s 200-year-old Round Room at the Mansion House, where the first meeting of an Irish Parliament was held, and where the treaty creating Ireland as a free state was signed. Within the spectacular setting of this round room, the group performs to a welcoming and enthusiastic audience against a 60-foot wide video screen displaying specially filmed scenes that encapsulate all the natural wonders for which Ireland is renowned.

Máiréad Nesbitt, Susan McFadden, Mairéad Carlin and the newest addition to the troupe, Éabha McMahon, are joined on stage for several songs by original Celtic Woman, Meav, who has worked closely with the group on the new recordings and preparation for this special.
