Lynn Hilary / Lynn's new single The Rare Old Times
« on: February 07, 2019, 09:01:27 PM »
Lynn is releasing a new single called The Rare Old Times on February 19th. It's available to download from her website now. There's also a preview of it on her website. I listened to the preview and it's beautiful! I'll be looking for this on iTunes on the 19th! Here's her Facebook post about it, which also has a link to her website:

Mairead Carlin / Favorite Mairead solo with Celtic Woman
« on: December 29, 2018, 12:50:47 AM »
Ok this is my last poll for tonight, and now I'm tormenting myself, making myself choose a favorite of my favorite singer. Ummmm, all of them? I'm choosing I See Fire tonight. At our very first Celtic Woman show, Gregg and I left saying this was our favorite song of the night. I'll probably keep changing my answer!

Tara McNeill / Favorite Tara solo with Celtic Woman
« on: December 29, 2018, 12:39:10 AM »
This one's really hard for me to choose between For the Love of a Princess and Love and Honour because I can feel both all the way to my heart and soul and they give me tears of joy. Love Tara so much! I'm going with For the Love of a Princess tonight. I may change my answer tomorrow, lol.

Susan McFadden / Favorite Susan solo with Celtic Woman
« on: December 29, 2018, 12:30:22 AM »
I'm going with She Moved Thru The Fair - beautifully sung and I love the dancing!

Eabha McMahon / Favorite Eabha solo with Celtic Woman
« on: December 29, 2018, 12:17:50 AM »
I'm really enjoying these polls and seeing responses, so I thought I'd start some more! Since the Destiny version of Walk Beside Me is mostly just Eabha, I included it.

This one is really hard for me to choose, but I think I have to go with Ard Ui Chuain/Sadhbh Ni Bhruinnealaigh because I Iove listening to Eabha sing in Gaelic so much!

Lynn Hilary / Lynn singing Ave Maria
« on: November 07, 2018, 09:53:44 PM »
Lynn shared a link on social media today to this you tube video of herself singing Ave Maria. It's so beautiful!


General Discussion / Opinions on m&g legitimacy?
« on: October 25, 2018, 11:26:12 PM »
I'm still looking into travel options for a second show on the Ancient Land tour and I'm very much wanting one with meet and greet. One that is high up on my interest list is NJPAC on March 24th, with NYC PBS offering meet and greet. The thing is, that show was not announced by Celtic Woman. It's also not on the NJPAC website or Ticketmaster. The only place I see it is on the PBS website. I emailed Celtic Woman and asked about the legitimacy of the show, but haven't heard back yet.

Anybody have any thoughts as to whether this is a legit show and m&g or not? PBS must've had a reason to post it right? But then why wasn't the show actually announced? Anybody have experience with this kind of thing in the past?

I'm concerned about paying for it if it's not legit, but at the same time I want to make my travel decision soon so that I can get meet and greet before Ancient Land starts airing and they all get snatched up.

Ancient Land / My Ancient Land dvd filming experience
« on: September 16, 2018, 03:34:26 AM »
My husband Gregg and I have spent the past two weeks in Ireland and this trip was to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. As many of you know, we booked this trip nearly two years ago and got insanely lucky with the Ancient Land filming dropping right into the end of the trip. We had to change our flight home by two days, which of course we were willing to do the moment we found out we had gotten tickets for the filming. We had an incredible time traveling all around Ireland and are now on the bus heading to the airport to fly home.

For day one of filming, we arrived at Johnstown Castle about three hours before the show started. There were maybe 50 people waiting in line already and we met Tom and David pretty much right after arriving. The time waiting in line flew by having you guys to talk to! While in line, we also could hear a bit of soundcheck. When they let us into the seating area, we got second row!

It was really awe-inspiring seeing the stage setup with the castle right behind, especially when they turned on the lighting. They lit up the castle in shades of purple, blue and green and it was so beautiful. There was the band, an orchestra, the four main dancers/choir members plus more choir members, a group of drummers and a group of bagpipers.

The ladies were stunningly gorgeous and absolutely incredible as always. Megan had an excellent debut! There were so many brand new songs and I loved all of them. Tom has the whole setlist in his write-up so I won't list it all again. I can't say enough how phenomenal, epic, amazing, incredible, spectacular this show is! Loved it so very much!

Night one of filming ran fairly smoothly. They did re-takes of three songs in the second act (Danny Boy, Going Home and The Parting Glass). Fine by me, I love hearing the beautiful songs more than once! Other than that, there were very short breaks in between songs.

During the show, we got eye contact and smiles from Mairead, Eabha and Tara! They definitely recognized us from the way they looked at us. So awesome! Also on night one, we met and got our picture taken with Anto!

On day two, we had a fan gathering lunch that was a lot of fun and then me, Gregg and Tom went out to the castle together and explored the grounds. It's really beautiful there and we got some great pictures. We were hoping to run into any of the ladies, but didn't. We did see the PBS crew doing some filming by the lake.

We got in line about four hours before the show was going to start and were some of the first people there. At that point they were letting people really close to the stage area and we were able to watch and listen to soundcheck which was really cool. More of the beautiful music! People were taking pictures and one of the crew members walked over at one point and we thought we'd be told to stop, but all she said was to not post them online before the show. Cool! Also before the show a PBS camera guy asked fans in line who wanted to talk about their love of Celtic Woman, so I did. So fun!

When we got inside, we got front row!! Second row was awesome on night one and front row even better! So incredibly cool to sit front row for a filming! And again, recognition and smiles from Mairead, Eabha and Tara!

Night two also ran fairly smoothly with the exception of the fog/mist making the stage wet. They took three or four breaks for the stage to be toweled off. I'm just really glad nobody fell or got hurt. As Mairead so adorably said, it was "Celtic Woman on Ice!" They did re-takes of Long Journey Home and Tara's Tunes on night two. Phenomenal show again and it was so awesome that they added in three more new songs on night two that we hadn't heard on night one! That made it so that we heard the entire Ancient Land album. This is going to be a really incredible one everybody!

On night two, Susan was in the audience! Tom and I very briefly met her before the show. I said hi to her and she rubbed my arm and said "hi how are you!" At intermission she was getting swarmed by fans and the same after the show. After the show I was able to get up next to her and asked for a picture and she said "yeah of course!" so I snapped a quick selfie with her! Yay!

We also met Glenn and Ronan, told them their album is amazing, and got a picture with them! We've met Glenn before, during the Voices of Angel's tour. Ronan asked my name and Glenn goes "oh that's Gregg and Tracie." OMG he knew us by name!!

We also met and shook hands with Ray both before and after the show and spoke very briefly with him, telling him how much we loved the show.

Alan and Carl and the other two dancers walked by us a few times (including in town before lunch) and we gave them lots of cheers and told them they're amazing.

Absolutely incredible experience! Can't wait to hear the album and watch the PBS special and blu-ray!

It is nearly identical to the Johnstown Castle filming, but there are a few songs on the CD that aren't on the DVD and vice versa.

On the CD but not the DVD:
County Down
Faith's Song
Garden of Eden

On the DVD but not the CD:
Danny Boy
Amazing Grace
Over the Rainbow
Siul A Run

The new songs are all amazing, I loved every single one!!

*Edit - County Down, Faith's Song and Garden of Eden were all performed on night two of the DVD filming!

General Discussion / Wexford Fan Gathering
« on: August 25, 2018, 10:33:03 AM »
Everybody going to Johnstown Castle - I looked at various pubs in Wexford for a fan gathering. These could be for after the show either or both nights. We could also look into lunch places depending on what we want to do. Here are the pubs I found to get the planning started. These look like they have good seating for groups from the pictures and they stay open late enough.

The Swan - open overnight

T Morris - open 24 hours

Crown Bar - open until 2am Friday night, not open late enough for after our show Thursday night

Maggie May's - open until 12:30am Friday night, not open late enough Thursday night
