‘Celtic Woman’ returns to Arizona PBS with ‘Ancient Land’

Delight in the shimmering voices and enchanting music of this new concert from Celtic Woman, airing Saturday, Jan. 5 at 6 p.m. on Arizona PBS.

Filmed at the enchanting 19th century Johnstown Castle in Wexford, Ireland, this brand-new special for PBS features stunning new music from Celtic Woman’s latest album “Ancient Land,” along with a selection of their timeless classics. The spectacular outdoor concert — their first filmed at a castle since 2009’s “Songs from the Heart” — follows in the footsteps of other PBS viewer favorites such as “A New Journey,” “Destiny” and last year’s “Homecoming.”

Showcasing the stunning fiddle playing of Tara McNeill and the voices of Mairead Carlin and Éabha McMahon, “Ancient Land” also introduces the newest member of Celtic Woman, 21-year-old Megan Walsh, making her debut.

Joining Celtic Woman will be a choir and Irish dancers, as well as an orchestra and some of Ireland’s finest musicians playing an array of Celtic instruments, including Uilleann pipes, whistles, percussion and bagpipes.

Filmed on a magical Irish evening on castle grounds, this lavish production features the highest quality sound, lighting and staging, all designed to highlight the superb performers gracing the stage. Celtic Woman continues to carry on the centuries-old tradition of telling stories through song — stories of the land, stories of love and stories of dancing.

Wish you could be there in person? Get tickets to see Celtic Woman at the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix on May 3, 2019. Or, get the CD/DVD combo set to enjoy “Ancient Land” any time.
