Celtic Women Launch “Ancient Land” New Album and DVD
13TH Studio Album Introduces Newest Member, Megan Walsh
Multi-platinum Irish music sensation CELTIC WOMAN release their 13th album, ANCIENT LAND. The 18-track album introduces the group’s newest member Megan Walsh, who joins vocalists Mairead Carlin, Eabha McMahon and violinist Tara McNeill.
Since their 2005 debut, Celtic Woman continue to touch the hearts of a huge audience that spans the globe. Both an accomplished recording ensemble and a world-class performing collective, Celtic Woman celebrates Ireland’s rich musical and cultural heritage, while continuing its remarkable legacy of introducing some of Ireland’s most talented singers and musicians onto the world stage.
The new album was recorded in Real World Studios in the U.K. this past summer, and features material that’s all new to Celtic Woman, including original compositions, “Follow Me,” “Be Still” and “Love & Honour”, along with Irish traditional songs, “Sive,” “Mna na hEireann (Women of Ireland)” and “Moorlough Shore” and some re-imagined workings of contemporary songs such “Long Journey Home,” “Going Home” and “Homeland.”
To coincide with the album’s release, Celtic Woman presents a new concert spectacular on PBS stations nationally now on DVD – check local listings for airdates. Filmed against the backdrop of the historic Johnstown Castle in Co. Wexford, Ireland, the outdoor concert special features music from Ancient Land, timeless Irish favorites and unexpected cover songs.
