Music is so much a part of my life as well as my children’s; for learning, play, and basic entertainment. While I pride myself as a music aficionado I admit that some music was out of my league. So when I got an email saying “Hold your horses and be open minded” I thought I really need to hear this.
Mind you I am very open minded, but when I saw the name of the band I cringed in fear. I received a Celtic CD as a gift some years back and really I needed to be in the right mood and or just gift the CD away. But with Celtic Woman Songs from the Heart I was so pleasantly surprised at the sound of traditional Celtic harmony with a modern day spin. Beautiful sounds were echoing through my speakers as I heard the familiar sound of the lyrics to Fields of Gold…sigh…and swoon to my heartthrob Sting.
I then moved onto the next song in the play list Amazing Grace with full bagpipes. I was bawling like anyone would who loves the sound of Amazing Grace in bagpipes. Next was NÃl SÃ©’n LÃ¡ and was blown away at the beauty of the song. Soulful, sweet, and soothing. Now fast forward to O’ America and the song screams nationalism, country pride, and you can feel the red, white and blue pulsing through your veins.
Please go listen to them and watch these ladies on YouTube to see how beautiful they are when they perform. I know I am excited to see their show here in Tempe in May at Gammage Auditorium; the timing couldn’t be more perfect as well as I take my mother to the concert for Mother’s Day. I cannot wait to post about the show and the feeling of being in the audience with their performance. Oh did I forget to mention they are on tour?! Yes. You can see these talented ladies LIVE in a city near you with their list of SOLD OUT tours or download their CD on iTunes or even better…enter to win Celtic Woman Songs from the Heart LIVE concert DVD.
