They have sold over eight million copies of their nine CD’s and eight DVD’s. They are the only all-female act to ever have reached multi-platinum status in the genres of classical crossover and world music. Flowing dresses, sold-out concert venues, a talented violinist and internationally celebrated vocals. This is Irish music sensation Celtic Woman.
The ensemble will perform at the Teatro at Montecasino on Saturday, September 17, as part of their Destiny World Tour; while Carnival City will play host to this traditionally Irish all-women group on Sunday, September 18.
The Mzansi Youth Choir will support Celtic Woman on their South African tour dates.
“We are so excited about being part the first leg of Celtic Woman’s world tour. This is a rare musical event not to be missed,” said Michelle Smith, Marketing Manager of Carnival City.
Celtic Woman first captured the attention of America a decade ago. Since then, they have travelled to Australia, Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Japan and Brazil to perform.
After performing at Carnival City, Celtic Women will visit China and South Korea.
When they take to the stage at Carnival City’s Big Top Arena, the group will perform old traditional Irish songs such as, ‘Bean Pháidín’ and ‘Siúil A Run’. Not only do the ladies appeal to the Irish or fans of Irish music, but they will also be performing favourites known to all, such as ‘Amazing Grace’ and ‘You Raise Me Up’.
Singing motivational songs with strong themes of love, loss and hope, Celtic Woman has transcended national and cultural boundaries, whilst bringing across a strong sense of where they are from and Ireland’s history.
