The concerts will combine longtime fan favorites with new musical gems written specifically for Celtic Woman, under the direction of Emmy®-nominated music producer David Downes. 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 songs from the EMERALD: MUSICAL GEMS CD/DVD, including the uplifting “Mo Ghile Mear” and “Dulaman,” the enchanting “She Moves Thru the Fair” and “Caladonia” and the ever-haunting “Danny Boy” and “The Voice.” Also featured are new interpretations of the beloved “Amazing Grace” and “You Raise Me Up.”

Celtic Woman is a unique ensemble that showcases the talent and charisma of four gifted young Irish women, whose dazzling performances combine the sound and sensibility of Irish traditional music with contemporary pop standards and memorable original compositions. Recently named Billboard magazine's #1 World Music Artist, Celtic Woman presents a one-of-a-kind concert experience that also incorporates the talents of a group of world-class musicians, the Aontas Choir, bagpipers and championship Irish dancers.

Since its inception in 2004, Celtic Woman has emerged as both a spectacular commercial success and a genuine cultural phenomenon. The group's uplifting mix of timeless tradition and contemporary craft has transcended national and cultural borders to touch the hearts of a loyal international fan base, who've embraced Celtic Woman's hugely successful public television specials and made their eight CDs and seven DVDs into multi-platinum best-sellers. The multitalented ensemble has sold more than eight million copies of its releases, all of which have debuted at #1 on Billboard's World Music chart.

Celtic Woman has won a particularly passionate audience in America, where their elaborately staged, visually stunning concert tours consistently draw sellout crowds. The group has performed twice at the White House, as well as making high-profile appearances on such American television shows as Dancing with the Stars and the daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful.
