Multiplatinum Irish singing sensation Celtic Woman brings their 2013 North American Tour to Boston’s Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre for two shows, on March 16 at 3 pm and 8 pm Under the distinct musical direction of Emmy-nominated music producer, David Downes, Celtic Woman combines the talents of four gifted Irish women—vocalists Chloë Agnew, Lisa Lambe and Susan McFadden, and violinist Máiréad Nesbitt—whose dazzling performances combine the sounds and sensibility of Irish traditional music with memorable original compositions and contemporary pop standards. Celtic Woman is backed by a full band, choir, and championship Irish dancer, Craig Ashurst and award-winning bag piper Anthony Byrne.
Celtic Woman debuted on Public Television in March 2005 and quickly emerged as a spectacular commercial success, selling more than seven million CDs/DVDs and nearly three million concert tickets worldwide. Recently named Billboard Magazine's #1 World Music Artist, Celtic Woman’s signature sound has emerged as a transcendent force and their live shows have touched the hearts of a devoted international fan base.
