This was in one of the Facebook groups. Unsure of the original source or if it's accurate.

Cadhla (KY-lah) means beautiful, comely, and graceful.

It's one of my favorite Irish names. It seems to roll off the tongue (once you know how to pronounce it) and it has a pleasant sound.

A singer/songwriter from Northern Ireland named this song after the area in which he was born. The song appeared on one of his albums released in 1990.

A Celtic Woman performer is from an area that neighbors the area mentioned in the song. That Celtic Woman member doesn't sing the song in the show, but the area she's from does neighbor the part of the country of the person that has performed the song for Celtic Woman.

If my geography is correct...

“County Down”?

Yep! Well done! Tara is from neighboring Antrim and Mairead Carlin from Derry.

The ballad “Foggy Dew”, which references the 1916 rising, was set to the melody of this traditional Irish love song.

Another stunning cover by Ella!

This one is "Into the West," a tribute to the late Ian Holm, who played Bilbo in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Skye Boat Song (Highland Saga Show version)
https://youtu.be/SqmVMxntUq0

Another Ella Roberts take on Skye Boat Song. It's a very different arrangement than the last one I shared and she went a different direction with the video. The video editing feels hit and miss in this one, but I think it turned out fairly well and you can't really go wrong listening to this woman sing.



Highland Saga Canon

This next video was designed to promote a tour but also prepare the audience to sing along during the tour. Not a bad idea! The tour, like pretty much everything else this year, was of course postponed.

Pachabel probably never thought he'd have such a pretty voice singing his melody. The lyrics in this version aren't anything special, but Ella Roberts sounds quite angelic singing them. There are times when they needed her vocal level a little higher (she got a little drowned out by the pipes at times), but overall, quite enjoyable to listen to.
As a bonus, her look almost channels Lisa Lambe at certain points in the song.



You can get both songs on the album "Highland Saga, Vol. 2" by Pipers of the World (2020).

Celtic Woman / Re: Celtic Woman Tour History

Added a few missing dates from the early tours, Ancient Land, and a few others.

Updated version is now attached to the head of the thread as:
Celtic Woman Tour History v3 - Work In Progress.xlsx

I'm sure there's plenty of other things to fix. It might help figure out how many shows I'm missing if we know which shows were actually #500, #1000, #1500...

Looks like show #500 was Saturday May 22, 2010, potentially (during the SftH tour):

If that's true, I'm missing at least 12 shows prior to that.

Today's name is Máirín (pronounced Maw-reen).

It means "star of the sea!"

The English version is "Maureen."

Curious if Mairead/Máiréad/Mairéad also had a sea-related meaning, I looked it up. The English version is Margaret, which means "pearl." Both rare and beautiful, a name that means pearl seems fitting for two of our favorite performers.
