Celtic Woman

Last night we went to a concert in Asheville.  We saw the Celtic Woman, on their new tour called Songs from the Heart.



I took this picture at the end of the concert, just as they were finishing the song, You Raise Me Up.

If you have not seen or heard Celtic Woman, you can find their concerts on PBS.  If they are touring anywhere near you, I highly recommend you go see them in person.  It was the best concert I have seen in years.


Here is a Youtube video of them singing, You Raise Me Up.

p.s.  I have somone very special to me that has recently purchased a home, that is a major fixer upper.  She has just started blogging about it.  Today she is trying to make a decision on an entertainment system.  Can you go over and help her decide?  Her blog is called Just About Home.  Click on the name to be taken to her blog.

Welcome Home,
Penny

Hey Penny...I love Celtic Woman. How lucky you were to go to a concert. I'm going to pop over to your friend's new blog...by the way I love your new header! We are just at the tail end of a week of bad weather...the finale was a major flood. Needless to say we are quite ready for spring! ~Ann

They are so lovely, my favorite to listen to. They are often on our PBS channel here. How fortunate to be able to see them perform in person.

I saw Lord of the Dance and it was fabulous. I know this would be too. I visited your friends new blog and it was lovely.

I've seen Celtic Woman on PBS - fantastic! I love all things Celtic - and with a brother and sister who are both pipers, there's lots of music around here.

I am a little jealous. I love that group and so far have been unable to see them. They do come to Minneapolis ocassionally but I have yet to have time to see them. You are so lucky and I love your header, it is so Springy.

Penny I saw Celtic Woman about 3 yrs. ago and I love their music-they are amazing!! That song they sang is just beautiful! Josh Grobin sang that song the first time I heard it and it makes me cry every time!! Glad you enjoyed them!

Hi Penny, I must go back and catch up with your posts. I know this is a shock but we have more company. My sister's are right. We are running a B&B with bed, breakfast and every other meal. HA! My cousin Marilyn and her hubs are here and staying in the cabin. I love them dearly but I have been so busy getting ready for them I have neglected my blogging friends.

I would be thrilled to see a concert with the Celtic Women. They are awesome. I have their CD's and play them often. Beautiful music.

Wow, almost 650 follower, I am a great fan of your blog. No surprise to me!

Love you bunches, Jeanne.

Glad you had such a wonderful evening at the concert - they are very talented musicians and I've enjoyed the shows on PBS.

Visited your friend in the entertainment center quandary - will be anxious to see which she chooses..........and hope she shares her decor pics later. You know how we gals love to peek through windows via our blogs and see what our friends are up to, ha! ha!

Hope all is going well dear Penny - keep working at it and soon you'll be good as new again.

Love and hugs - Mary
