Internationally renowned for their stage productions and songs of
heartwarming inspiration, Celtic Woman returns with a new special DVD, Believe.
The distinctive ensemble of female performers, originally comprised of four
singers and a violinist, was brought together in 2004 by David Downes, the
former musical director of Riverdance, and producer Sharon Browne. The 2005
broadcast of their concert from The Helix in Dublin, Ireland introduced Celtic
Woman to American audiences and their popularity has continued to grow in the
U.S. and worldwide ever since.
Believe stars vocalists Chloë Agnew and Lisa Kelly, who are original members of the ensemble along with violinist Máiréad Nesbitt, and Lisa Lambe, the troupe's newest member. They performed classic Irish songs (“The Water Is Wide,” “Green Grow the Rushes,” “A Woman’s Heart” and “The Parting Glass”), timeless pop anthems (“Bridge Over Troubled Water”), and inspirational songs (“You’ll Never Walk Alone” and “Ave Maria”) with their signature Celtic Woman twist, under the musical direction of David Downes.
Celtic Woman’s previous specials were filmed at historic locations around Ireland, including Slane Castle and Powerscourt House & Gardens. For the first time ever, this Celtic Woman concert was taped in the United States, at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA. The group's sold-out performances at the former grand movie palace, now a designated National Historic Landmark, featured a dazzling array of visual and musical effects, including a 20-piece orchestra, seven-piece Celtic Woman band, 16-piece Atlanta bag pipe band and lush vocal harmonies from the 10-member Aontas Choir and a 30-member children’s choir.
Since Celtic Woman’s March 2005 American debut, the unique all-female ensemble has become a commercial success: four of their six recordings have made it to No. 1 on Billboard's World Albums chart, and they have sold millions of CDs worldwide. Although the group's lineup of performers has undergone changes since its formation, Celtic Woman’s evocative, uplifting music has crossed national and cultural borders to touch the hearts of a devoted fan base that spans the globe.
Celtic Radio Comments: Celtic Woman's Believe DVD is probably one of the best shows you will see by the Celtic Woman. Even though this show does not have some of the original Celtic Woman that we have come to know and love, the new editions of Máiréad Nesbitt and Lisa Lambe continue the tradition of Celtic Woman with their own unique musical talents. Believe is a wonderful DVD that you will enjoy any time you need your Celtic Woman fix!. Just when you think the girls have truly out performed all of the previous tracks, the show continues to build with one outstanding performance after another. A remarkable production and one that you should highly consider purchasing.
