Global music phenomenon Celtic Woman will return to Tulsa at the Mabee Center concert stage April 17, 2014 with The Emerald Tour, which will encompass over 75 performances in more than 65 cities.
    The elaborate new stage presentation will celebrate the Emerald Isles’ spellbinding musical and cultural ­heritage and combines ­longtime fan favorites with new musical gems written specifically for Celtic Woman, under the direction of Emmy®-nominated music producer David Downes. The Emerald Tour will spotlight the angelic voices and ­inspiring music that have won Celtic Woman the ­devotion of a worldwide ­audience.
    “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!”
    Celtic Woman is a unique ensemble that showcases the talent and charisma of four gifted young Irish women, whose performances combine Irish traditional music with contemporary pop standards and memorable original compositions. Since its inception in 2004, the group’s uplifting mix of timeless songs has transcended national and cultural borders to touch the hearts of a loyal international fan base that has embraced Celtic Woman’s hugely successful public television specials and made their eight CDs and seven DVDs into multi-platinum best-sellers. Emerald Tour features songs from the “Emerald: Musical Gems” CD/DVD, including the uplifting “Mo Ghile Mear” and “Dulaman,” the enchanting “She Moves Thru the Fair” and “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.”  
    The talented ensemble has sold more than eight million copies of its releases, all of which have debuted at #1 on Billboard’s World Music chart. The group, whose line up has changed through the years, has 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.
