Info for Postcards From Ireland
"Postcards from Ireland", according to a press release from the group, “represents the sentiment they would like to share with their fans around the world. One of love, hope, and expectation as the world looks towards getting back together again.
“What better way to express these wishes than to write and send a postcard, but this postcard is written with the music and songs from Celtic Woman’s latest album.”
"Postcards from Ireland" features 13 brand new songs and is the group’s first new studio album since 2018’s Ancient Land. It features new arrangements of beautiful and iconic songs including “The Dawning of the Day,” “Wild Mountain Thyme,” “The Galway Shawl” and “Black is the Color” among others.
“We welcome back Chloë for a stunning version of ‘Angel,’ Megan Walsh and Tara McNeill duet on ‘The Lakes of Pontchartrain,’ and Susan McFadden performs the haunting ‘May it Be.’ The album also introduces newest member Muirgen O’Mahony, and includes a performance by British folk group The Longest John’s who join Celtic Woman on a version of Richard Thompson’s ‘Beeswing,’” the press release added.
“Following the album release, PBS will air the accompanying TV Special in North America across 60-plus PBS local stations. Filmed on location in 14 beautiful and iconic locations around the island of Ireland, this 80 minute TV special showcases the beautiful landscapes of Ireland as Celtic Woman perform their brand-new compositions and arrangements, plus some fan favorites.
“Breaking from the usual format of their former TV specials, they bring an innovative, fresh, and vibrant approach as they take fans on this magical journey through Ireland, stopping off to perform their music in some of the most stunning land and seascapes across the country.
“Celtic Woman is honored to be recognized as the most successful all-female group in Irish history, with a legacy of 12 consecutive Billboard number ones, 10 million album sales, a coveted Grammy nomination, and an incredible 1.8 billion online streams to date.
In just a few short years, the unique musical ensemble known as Celtic Woman has emerged as both a spectacular commercial success and a genuine cultural phenomenon. The beloved ensemble’s evocative, uplifting music has transcended national and cultural borders to touch the hearts of a devoted fan base that spans the globe.
Since their formation in 2004, Celtic Woman's CD and DVD releases have been enthusiastically embraced by a large and ever-increasing audience, and their concert tours have become major events, while a series of Celtic Woman concert specials on the U.S. Public Television have been consistent ratings successes. The group has sold over eight million albums and DVDs worldwide.
Celtic Woman's unprecedented success is all the more remarkable in that the group's inspiring music has struck a responsive chord with listeners around the world. Their success has been particularly impressive in the United States, selling close to 3 million concert tickets, and where their music has demonstrated a broad appeal to audiences from a wide array of demographic and cultural backgrounds.
Celtic Woman's far-reaching accessibility has been a key component of the act’s appeal from the start. The group is the product of the musical vision of David Downes, who had previously been musical director of the pioneering Irish-themed stage show Riverdance. Downes envisioned a creative entity that would combine the elemental appeal of traditional Irish music with modern production and staging.
Named Celtic Woman in order to represent the essence of a Celtic female performer, the group is comprised of vivacious, sublimely gifted young Irish women. The lineup of performers has rotated since the group began, but the signature sound of Celtic Woman has never changed.
This album contains no booklet.
