Re: Celtic Woman

Love them! Their sound is glorious, haunting, and beautiful.

I wasn't aware of them until I watched "King Arthur" on cable and loved the music and vocals. Traced Moya Brennan from the soundtrack to Celtic music and then found Celtic Woman. PBS had the show on not long after I had first seen "King Arthur" so I listened to see if I would like them also -- "like" is not the word!

This thread is getting old, but I had to post my appreciation for their music.

Re: Celtic Woman

I watched them on PBS last weekend. They are wonderful. The hard part is sitting through 20 minutes of PBS begging for money. Drives me crazy.

Re: Celtic Woman

I have 2 of their DVD's. Most awesome. I also caught them on a PBS telethon. I was actually going to bed one night and thought I'd just see what was on before conking out and there they were. I was immediatley mesmorized. I knew I had to have it. It's good to hear about others that enjoy them as much as I do. Funny, I wasn't even a fan of that sort of thing before seeing & hearing them. Now I listen to a Celtic Sojourn every weekend on WGBH 89.7 (Massachusetts).

I wasn't aware of the group, or similar music either. I'd heard of Enya, but had no idea of what her sound was (only been around for 20 years ). I almost chose not to watch the movie "King Arthur" because I dislike most remakes, but I ran across it during the middle and became interested enough to watch how a scene would play out and then stayed until the end. The music intrigued me but I had no idea how to "categorize" it. Without the internet, I would have forgotten about it, but I looked up info on the soundtrack and followed links and listened to samples. After finding Celtic Woman, I found info about their upcoming show on PBS and decided to listen -- as you, I was mesmerized.

Another neat thing about the internet, I was able to find the podcast for the show you listen to and am listening while I write this. (My first thought was "Darn! I live in the west and can't hear that show on WGBH." Then I remembered podcasts and did a search for the station.)

If you want to hear and see them while waiting for your DVD, YouTube has some videos from the PBS and other shows (Martha Stewart and morning news programs had them as guests). I used tinyurl to make it easier. [* If you're upset by crude comments, don't read any comments about any YouTube videos - they range from educational to disgusting]

If you'd like to hear/see Enya, here's a YouTube version of "May it Be" from "The Lord of the Rings" with images from the movie. http://tinyurl.com/26h8fu

Or one that has artistic backgrounds added - http://tinyurl.com/2jzkvk

Or a live performance of "Only Time"

Re: Celtic Woman

Ladies!!! There is a new group - Celtic THUNDER!! -- 5 gorgeous men (ranging from 14 to mature) striding around the stage, great stage presence and production values topped only by their voices and the music -- they were shown on PBS tonight and there are some clips on the internet.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D13Qv-gj-0s -- gives you a bit of several of their songs

singing "Ireland Call" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlnLk4Y_kKM
