Watch the Destiny trailer:
The heart of Ireland beats strongly throughout the tour featuring an entirely new production showcasing vocalists Mairéad Carlin, Susan McFadden and newest member Éabha McMahon along with Celtic violinist and founding member Máiréad Nesbitt, accompanied by a group of equally talented musicians and dancers.
DESTINY CD/DVD (Manhattan Records) is Celtic Woman’s 10th CD and first of all-new material since 2011’s Believe. DESTINY features a fresh fusion of traditional Irish music and modern songcraft, including theWaterboys classic “The Whole of the Moon,” Ed Sheeran’s “I See Fire,” from The Hobbit film, Mutt Lange’s “Walk Beside Me” and the popular video game theme, “Skyrim.” As Ireland commemorates the events of 100 years ago that led to its nation’s independence, Celtic Woman offers a rousing version of “Óró sé do bheatha ‘bhaile,” an anthem closely connected with the 1916 uprising. The all-female ensemble also delivers timeless traditional Irish songs such as “Bean Pháidín” and “Siúil A Run” highlighting the beauty of Ireland’s heritage and its Gaelic language, plus audience favorites “Amazing Grace” and “You Raise Me Up.”
The companion DVD Destiny: Live in Concert was filmed in Dublin in the Round Room at the Mansion House, the historic home of the Lord Mayor of Dublin. The concert has already begun airing on local public television stations as the latest in Celtic Woman’s lengthy series of successful PBS television concert specials.
The multi-platinum, all-female ensemble made its debut on PBS in 2005 and has achieved massive success encompassing 10 chart-topping albums, nine PBS specials, over eight million albums sold, and platinum sales in nine countries. Celtic Woman regularly performs to sellout audiences across six continents and 23 countries, with an especially devoted following in America.
