Celtic Women- Songs From the Heart Review


I first heard about the music group,Celtic Women, from my old best friend. Her dad really enjoys their music and decided to buy him tickets for a present a few years ago. I had become familiar with their music since then. I really enjoy listening to Celtic Women so when I had the opportunity to receive a CD from my relationship with Music Moms I was really excited. I am Irish so I think liking Celtic music is in my blood. My dad used to play it when I was little so I have always been familiar with the style of music.

Celtic Women is an interesting group with their own unique sound. The group is made up of the vocalists Lisa Kelly, Chole Agnew, Lynn Hillary and Alex Sharpe, with violinist Mairead Nesbitt. The Group is all over the Billboard charts, selling more than 3.8 million records in the U.S. alone, and has had 7 sold-out U.S. tours. They have also performed on Dancing With the Stars and have an upcoming PBS special that will be airing on St. Patrick’s Day. Celtic Women is currently on tour now including dates at Radio City Music Hall.

Celtic Women’s newest release is called Songs from the Heart. It features such songs as Amazing Grace and The Lost Rose Fantasia. My favorite song on the CD is Good Night My Angel which is a Billy Joel song. I happened to sing this song in choir when I was in 7th grade. It is such a great song. My favorite lyric from the song is; someday we’ll all be gone but lullabies go on and on they never die that’s how you and I will be. Celtic Women did a beautiful cover of the song. The group continues to delight fans moving seamlessly between Irish classics, contemporary covers and original compositions. Songs from the Heart includes contemporary hits like Stings “Fields of Gold” and Mariah Carey’s “When You Believe.”

This CD is great. It would be great for any music lover. I really enjoy this CD, my son enjoyed listening to it with me as well. Look for Songs From the Heart by Celtic Women in stores now from EMI Music/Manhattan Records. For more information about Celtic Women please visit Celtic Women

I received this CD from EMI Music as a member of Music Moms for myself to review.

  2. I watch all their specials on PBS and some other blogs I have visited have them on their players. I really should go out and get my own copy.
