The lasses of Celtic Woman will be returning to our shores next month for yet another blockbuster tour. Their retooled show, "Isle of Hope," will be stopping in over 70 cities. The tour kicks off on February 13, in St. Paul and includes multiple shows in both New York during the St. Patrick's period, and Boston. Four years ago Celtic Woman traveled from Ireland to the U.S. and captivated millions with their relentless onslaught on PBS. Their incredible journey to stardom has been built on the formidable talents of vocalists Chlo', Lisa, Lynne, Alex and Celtic violinist M?irZad. The new tour will dazzle the eye, enchant the ear and stimulate both the mind and the heart. The ladies will pack in the suitcase brand-new renditions of "Fields of Gold" and "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You," as well as an original anthem by Brendan Graham, writer of "You Raise Me Up." Musical Director David Downes has composed new music for the 19-member ensemble.
