FSCJ Artist Series Presents Celtic Woman, March 13 at 7:30 p.m.!
On a winter’s night in Dublin 14 years ago…an idea. To create a musical show with exceptional talent. Classically and traditionally trained Irish female musicians. Celtic Woman was born.
Celtic Woman (www.celticwoman.com), the multi-platinum international music sensation, is returning with a brand new live show for an extensive North American tour beginning Spring 2018 with a stop in Jacksonville on March 13, 2018 for one performance only at The Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts. The much-anticipated concert, ‘Homecoming,’ will play in more than 90 U.S. and Canadian cities from coast-to-coast.
Celebrating Ireland’s rich musical and cultural heritage, Celtic Woman combines finest musical talent with epic stage productions to present a unique, inspiring live experience. From the debut, Celtic Woman has touched the hearts of a huge global audience. Now, with Homecoming, Celtic Woman brings the next chapter of an extraordinary musical journey. It’s a universal celebration of life. It’s traditional, it’s contemporary. It’s yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Continuing its remarkable legacy of introducing some of Ireland’s most talented singers and musicians onto the world stage, the Grammy winning group Celtic Woman --featuring the angelic voices of Susan McFadden, Mairéad Carlin, Éabha McMahon and the breathtaking Celtic violinist Tara McNeill, accompanied by a full ensemble of musicians and dancers -- will embark on a four-month tour. The 90-city trek will take Celtic Woman across the country before wrapping June 17 in Rosemont, IL.
