The Arkansas Educational Television Network has a limited number of tickets available to 'Celtic Woman' Wednesday, May 17, at 7 p.m. at Robinson Center Music Hall in Little Rock.
This all-female Irish musical ensemble has been named Billboard World Album Artist of the Year six times. Their music is a joyful fusion of all things Celtic, from bagpipes to Irish dances, that resembles a universal celebration of life.
Tickets from the Arkansas PBS Foundaion are available for a donation of $125 per ticket. Additionally, 20 tickets available for a $250 donation each include admission to the Arkansas PBS Foundaion's meet and greet with the group. Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis. Additional information and ticket reservation forms are available at aetnfoundation.org/boxoffice or by calling 1-800-662-2386.
These tickets are a fundraiser for the Arkansas PBS Foundaion, and all proceeds will support programming on AETN, Arkansas's PBS affiliate and only statewide public service media network.
Viewers interested in previewing the tour may tune in to AETN for 'Celtic Woman: Destiny' Sunday, March 12, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, March 19, at 2 p.m.
This concert special was filmed in Dublin's 200-year-old Round Room at the Mansion House, where the first meeting of an Irish Parliament was held, and where the treaty creating Ireland as a free state was signed. Within this round room, the group performs to an audience against a 60-foot wide video screen displaying specially filmed scenes that encapsulate all the natural wonders for which Ireland is renowned.
'Celtic Woman: Destiny' contains new material along with fresh arrangements of some of their most spellbinding songs from throughout their 10-year career. Máiréad Nesbitt, Susan McFadden, Mairéad Carlin and the newest addition to the troupe, Éabha McMahon, are joined on stage for several songs by original Celtic Woman, Meav, who has worked closely with the group on the new recordings. The program also features a guest performance by Rebecca Winckworth singing 'Isle of Innisfree' and Celtic Woman performing a duet with renowned German Celtic music star Oonagh.
