Celtic Woman

Recently I decided to embrace my cheesy side. For years I have loved listening to Celtic music when I’m stressed out, starting out with the amazing Enya.  My brother would get annoyed when I listened to Enya and one day he said to me ‘Aren’t you relaxed enough yet!’.

After my mission I got introduced to the group Celtic Woman.  This is the Celtic version of a boy/girl band but I LOVE it!  Its so peaceful and while admittedly cheesy its calming and beautiful. While watching their Believe PBS concert the fundraisers mentioned a concert for Celtic Woman coming to SLC.  On a whim I decided to go for it.  It’d been a while since I’d been to a concert and figured I could find a friend to go with me.

The concert ended up being tonight and I went with my friend Jill.  It was a lot of fun and something different to spice up life.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself- a night full of beautiful music and despite the cheesy lighting it was great!

Over the years the women in Celtic Woman have changed but the amazing singer Chloe Agnew and fiddler Mairead Nesbitt have remained constant.  Their numbers were definitely the highlights of the night.  Chloe is just a stunning talent.  They had a broadway medley and her singing I Dreamed a Dream was awesome.

Other highlights were Ave Maria and Danny Boy.  Here are 2 videos I took.  Please just listen because the video is shaky.  I just can’t seem to keep my hand still enough while shooting video.

I love going to concerts.  There is just something about live entertainment that never gets old.  I think my ideal date is a guy thinking of cool concert and planning it out.  That would be awesome!
