Celtic Woman ~ Believe (Review & Giveaway)

Several years ago I stumbled across a broadcast on PBS for the Celtic Woman group. The group is an all-female singing group featuring vocalists Chloë Agnew, Lisa Kelly, Lisa Lambe and Celtic violinist Máiréad Nesbitt.  They perform classic Irish songs (“Green Grow the Rushes"), timeless pop anthems (“Bridge Over Troubled Water"), and inspirational songs (“Ave Maria”) with their signature Celtic Woman twist. Their music is slow, romantic and restful.

Celtic Woman ~ Believe Live Tour
CD/DVD Review & Giveaway

On January 24th they released their newest CD "Believe" along with a new live concert DVD which includes a 20 piece orchestra, 7 piece Celtic Woman Band, 16 piece Atlanta Bag Pipe Band; lush vocal harmonies from a 10 piece Aontas Choir, 30 member children’s choir and featuring a world champion Irish dancer formerly a lead performer in Riverdance all serving as the backdrop to the grace and beauty of Celtic Woman.

My thoughts:
I was listening to the DVD on my drive home this weekend ~ and thoroughly enjoyed Ave Maria and Bridge Over Troubled Water. I've heard both several times from other singers - but I think Celtic Woman does the prettiest rendition of both that I've ever heard. Another song I really enjoyed because of the rhythm and movement of the lyrics and instrumentals was Teir Abhaile Riu which is a FUN combination of English & Gaelic. This is a beautiful cd that I'm sure you will enjoy this spring and summer. =D It would make a great gift for a friend, mother's day & kids that are really into music.
