I had the pleasure of finally shooting Celtic Woman at the Durham Performing Arts Center in Durham, NC the day before St. Patrick's Day.
Celtic Woman is an all-female Irish musical ensemble (with the exception of the backup musicians) with 14 albums under that name with different line-ups over the years.
The group first came about in 2005 when David Downes brought together five Irish female musicians for a one time show in Dublin, Ireland. Multiple airings on PBS boosted the group's popularity, and here we are today.
The show covered traditional cover songs as expected with all Irish productions, as well as originals from their albums.
The show also included a mixture of dance, drum & bagpipes, Irish tap/gig dance and so much more.
We love the arts. We write about them. Founded 2018.
