By Scott Fulmer
Come celebrate Ireland and the Emerald Isle’s spellbinding Celtic heritage when global music phenomenon Celtic Woman brings its Emerald Tour to the Honeywell Center for two shows at 3 and 7 p.m. Sunday, May 4, 2014. Ticket sales began last Friday, December 20. The performances are sponsored by Wabash Electric.
The Emerald Tour kicks off its North American Tour in February 2014 with more than 80 concert dates. The all-new stage production features the angelic voices of Celtic Woman, a female Irish musical ensemble, performing traditional Irish anthems, pop standards and original music by Emmy Award nominated music producer David Downes.
Downes, a former musical director for the Irish stage show Riverdance, recruited five women in 2004 to create Celtic Woman. The group, whose line up has changed through the years, has recorded more than a dozen CDs and DVDs since its founding. A new project, “Celtic Woman: Emerald – Musical Gems,” is due out on both DVD and CD in February 2014.
Tickets are $110, orchestra pit; $65, main floor; $45, balcony. For tickets, please call 260-563-1102 or visit the Box Office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
