In support of the VOICES OF ANGELS, the Celtic Woman foursome–featuring the angelic voices of Susan McFadden, Mairéad Carlin, Éabha McMahon and the breathtaking new Celtic violinist Tara McNeill–will embark on a four month tour. Kicking off March 2 in Lakeland, FL, the 84 city trek will take Celtic Woman across the country before wrapping June 25 in Lynn, MA.
VOICES OF ANGELS contains some of the most popular songs from the Celtic Woman repertoire, along with several previously unrecorded tracks, all with stunning new orchestral arrangements recorded with the 72-piece Orchestra of Ireland. Celtic Woman has a remarkable 12-year-legacy of introducing the most talented singers and musicians from Ireland onto the world stage.
