April 25, 2014 -  Irish music phenomenon, Celtic Woman, has been winning over audiences of all ages worldwide since their debut on Public Televsion in 2005 with inspiring songs that move seamlessly between traditional Irish classics, contemporary pop covers and original compositions.  Celtic Woman is currently on its North American Emerald concert tour with nearly 90 performances in 75 cities bringing the audience to their feet every night with standing ovations.    Watch the stunning trailer for Celtic Woman's Emerald Tour HERE.

Celtic Woman performs in Pittsburgh’s Benedum Center on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 7:30pm. Tickets, priced at $39, $69 and $99 ( plus applicable fees) are available by calling (412) 456-6666 and in person at the box office at Theater Square. For more information, please visit

Released in February, EMERALD: MUSICAL GEMS (Manhattan Records), debuted at #1 on the Billboard World Music Charts, marking their 8th record to debut at the #1 spot and held the top position for seven consecutive weeks.   The group's nine CDs and eight DVDs have become multi-platinum best-sellers, making Celtic Woman the only all-female group to achieve multi-platinum success in the classical crossover/world music genres over the past decade. The companion DVD, EMERALD: Musical Gems - Live in Concert, was filmed on the doorstep of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana and was seen across the country during spring Public Television pledge drives.

Watch Celtic Woman's recent TODAY Show performance showcasing a medley of songs from the new album HERE.

Celtic Woman’s elaborate new show spotlights reimagined performances of fan favorites from the group’s treasure chest of Celtic songs.  A celebration of the Emerald Isles’ rich musical heritage, The Emerald Tour features songs from the EMERALD: MUSICAL GEMS CD/DVD, including the uplifting “Mo Ghile Mear,” the enchanting “Caladonia” and the ever-haunting “Danny Boy” and “The Voice.”  Also featured are new interpretations of the beloved “Amazing Grace” and “You Raise Me Up.” 

Named Celtic Woman in order to represent the essence of a Celtic female performer, the group’s 2014 tour features four sublimely gifted Irish women – vocalists Susan McFadden, Lynn Hilary and newest member Mairéad Carlin along with Celtic violinist Máiréad Nesbitt.  The lineup of performers has rotated since the group began, but the signature sound of Celtic Woman has never changed.  

During The Emerald Tour, Celtic Woman’s angelic voices and violin virtuosity will be joined by world class musicians, the Aontas Choir, bagpipers and championship Irish dancers, all under the direction of Emmy®-nominated music producer David Downes, former music director for Irish stage show Riverdance

"Creating the new show allowed me the opportunity to revisit and re-imagine some of our most popular Irish songs, as well as writing some exciting new material for the show,” said Downes.  “With all-new performances of these great songs—Emerald has created a whole new experience for both our longstanding fans, and for those who have just discovered our music. This is a Celtic Woman experience that will soothe the soul and have you dancing in the aisles!” 

Recently named Billboard Magazine's #1 World Albums Artist of the Year for the fifth time, the multitalented ensemble has sold more than eight million copies of its releases, all of which have debuted at #1 on Billboard's World Music chart.  They have performed for three U.S. Presidents and made high-profile appearances on Dancing with the Stars and the daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful. As a live act, Celtic Woman continues to sell out concert halls around the world, having performed for nearly three million fans.
