Celtic Woman / CW as Teachers
« on: May 12, 2019, 07:40:06 PM »
This was just a fun and silly topic on the old forum. If the CW ladies were school teachers, what subject would they teach?

Here's what I think:

Chloé = School Consouler
Lisa Kelly = Choir
Méav = French
Máiréad Nesbitt and Tara = Strings / Orchestra
Alex and Susan = Theatre
Lisa Lambe = Art
Mairéad Carlin = Health / Physical Education
Eabha = Irish Langauge (if it's a school in Ireland)
Megan = Art?

Not sure for Órla, Deirdre, Hayley, and Lynn. What do you guys think? I was thinking maybe Child Development for Órla or Deirdre because they seem so nurturing.

Celtic Woman / Celtic Woman: Seasons
« on: April 03, 2019, 08:59:08 PM »
This is a concept I've had on my mind for a couples years now and have posted something similar on the old CW forum. It is my idea for a CW DVD called "Seasons." It'd be complex and include a lot of songs. If it were real, it'd realistically have to be filmed over a period of several days. It would be filmed outdoors. Spring would take place during the morning time and feature light-hearted, airy songs. Summer would take place during the afternoon and feature upbeat songs. Autumn would take place during twilight and feature haunting songs. And winter would take place during the evening and feature dark songs. Méav is just featured in the intro and outro because I want her to be a "narrator" (if that makes any sense :D) in this story as we pass through all four seasons.

Lineup: Mairéad, Éabha, Tara (violin, harp, and vocals!), Megan
Special Guest: Méav

Notes:
- Morning Has Broken - each girl gets to sing her own verse except Tara is just playing harp on this particular number.
- Down by the Sally Gardens - Éabha sings verses, Mairéad sings choruses.
- Songbrid - Mairéad sings the "for you" part, Tara sings the "to you" part.
- Wild Mountain Thyme - similar to the Divinas version.
- Last Rose of Summer - Megan sings Hayley's old part, Mairéad sings Méav's old part.
- Tim Burton Medley - I know, it's pretty out there, but I think CW could pull it off!
- Encore - repeats "green the whole year 'round / green the whole year 'round / the holly yew and the ivy tree / are green the whole year 'round."

Celtic Woman / What Do You Think?
« on: April 01, 2019, 06:01:33 PM »
This is my opinion of the ladies that I think stood out the most or were more dominant on DVD and/or CD judging by songs, dresses, and other factors.

The Show: Méav
- 4 solos ("Danny Boy," "Si Do Mhaimeo I," "She Moved Through the Fair," I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls").
- featured in all group numbers ("Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring," "The Soft Goodbye," "Orinoco Flow").
- iconic mermaid dress.

*****
Note: Chloë could be argued because she had the opening number and 4 solos, as well, but I think Méav stood out just a bit more than the others.

ANJ:
Lisa Kelly

- 3 solos ("Caledonia," "The Blessing," "The Voice").
Hayley
- newest member.
- often placed in the middle during group numbers ("Sky, Dawn, Sun" and "Mo Ghile Mear").


ACC: Méav
- prominent in "O Holy Night" and "O Come All Ye Faithful."

SftH: Chloë and Lisa Kelly
- both had 2 solos.
- both featured more prominently in the group songs.


Believe: Lisa Lambe
- newest member.
- 3 solo parts, if you count "Circle of Life."
- center focus of "Tribute to Broadway," "The World Falls Away," and "Téir Abhaile Riú."


HfC: Méav
- big return.
- epic high notes ("O Tannenbaum," "Silent Night," "Joy to the World").


Emerald: Lisa Lambe
- speaking part during "Danny Boy."
- prominent during "TAR" and "NSL."
- wore a green dress during "NSL" while the others wore blue.
- most energetic and interactive with the audience.


Destiny: Susan
- most prominent in all the group songs ("When You Go," "My Land," "Westering Home").

VoA: Mairéad Carlin
- 2 solos on CD ("Ave Maria" and "A Time For Us").
- most prominent in group songs ("Time to Say Goodbye").


Homecoming: Tara
- newest member.
- featured as both a violinist and harpist.
- sparkly gold dress.


Ancient Land: All
Mairéad Carlin

- longest current standing member in CW.
- often placed in the middle.

Éabha
- 3 solo parts ("Moorlough Shore," "Siúli A Rún," "Garden of Eden").
- prominent in "Mna na hErinn."
- wrote "Garden of Eden."

Tara
- 4 solo parts ("Ancient Land," "Love & Honor," "Tara's Tunes," "Enchanted Way").
Megan
- newest member.
- prominent in "Follow Me."


What do you guys think? Do you agree with this or do you have different opinions? I'd like to read them! :)

Tara McNeill / Tara's Violin Name
« on: March 26, 2019, 03:24:19 PM »
On Tara's takeover on CW's Instagram stories, Tara says she used to call her violin "Jacob" back when she went through her Twilight obsession. :D

I thought this was hilarious! I myself went through a Twilight phase, and it's funny to know Tara was "Team Jacob," too. ;D

Celtic Woman / My DVD Idea
« on: March 13, 2019, 06:43:29 AM »
Yes, we all know this won't happen, but I wanted to use my imagination and create this just for fun purposes - plus I'm bored! :D The concert would be a mixture of Ancient Land with some touches from Voices of Angels.

Lineup: Mairéad, Éabha, Tara (violin/harp), and Megan
Special Guest(s): Méav and Susan

Notes:
- Orinoco Flow - mixture between Ancient Land and VoA tour version w/Ancient Land tour choreography.
- Follow Me - starts off as normal, but towards end, Méav comes out to sing Megan's "light of sun" part.
- Mná na hÉireann - similar to the brief Destiny Tour version.
- Tír na nÓg - Mairéad and Susan sing the first part, Megan sings Oonagh's part, and Éabha sings her original part.
- O America - exactly the same as the VoA CD except Megan sings Susan's old parts instead.
- Going Home - Tara plays a violin intro, Mairéad and Megan only sing the first part, Éabha sings the whole second part, then they all come together at the end.
- Mo Ghile Mear - ANJ version. Mairéad sings Méav's old part, Éabha sings Órla's part, Megan sings Chloë's part. After the chorus, Méav and Susan come out. Susan sings Lisa's part, and Méav sings Hayley's part.
- *Dresses are similar to the original Ancient Land DVD yet different!*

Celtic Woman / The Voice (Mashup Idea)
« on: February 15, 2019, 07:46:06 PM »
This is my idea for a song mashup of "The Voice" featuring Lisa Kelly, Méav, Lynn, Alex, Susan, and Máiréad Nesbitt on violin.

Méav: I hear your voice on the wind
Lynn: And I hear you call out my name

Lisa:
"Listen, my child," you say to me
"I am the voice of your history
Be not afraid, come follow me
Answer my call, and I'll set you free"

Susan: I am the voice in the wind and the pouring rain
Alex: I am the voice of your hunger and pain
Lynn: I am the voice that always is calling you
Méav: I am the voice, I will remain

Susan:
I am the voice in the fields when the summer's gone
The dance of the leaves when the autumn winds blow

Lynn:
Ne'er do I sleep thoughout all the cold winter long
I am the force that in springtime will grow

(Máiréad's Violin Solo)

Alex:
I am the voice of the past that will always be
Filled with my sorrow and blood in my fields

Méav:
I am the voice of the future, bring me your peace
Bring me your peace, and my wounds, they will heal

Lisa: I am the voice in the wind and the pouring rain
Lynn: I am the voice of your hunger and pain
Alex: I am the voice that always is calling you
Susan: I am the voice

Méav: I am the voice of the past that will always be
Lisa: I am the voice of your hunger and pain
Lynn: I am the voice of the future
Alex: I am the voice
Susan: I am the voice
Méav: I am the voice
Lisa: I am the voice

CW Photos & Graphics / CW Look-Alikes

This is a fun thread on the old forum where you find celebs or other people who resemble or look similar to the CW girls.

CW Photos & Graphics / CW as Disney Princesses
« on: January 25, 2019, 09:35:00 PM »
Considering dresses, hair, and other characteristics, these are the Disney princesses that I think match our Celtic Woman princesses perfectly. :D



I created this nearly 4 years ago, so there are even more comparisons that can be made now. Merida could also apply to Tara easily. ;D

-----

Chloë as Rapunzel (long hair)
Órla as Ariel
Lisa Kelly as Belle
Méav as Aurora aka Sleeping Beauty (my fave CW lady and my fave Disney princess + similar voices)
Máiréad Nesbitt as Tinkerbell (the way Máiréad seems to float across stage like a fairy)
Lisa Lambe as Merida (long and curly red hair, of course!)
Susan as Elsa (powerful and theatrical voices)

CW Photos & Graphics / Chandler's Graphics
« on: January 19, 2019, 11:59:56 AM »
I used to make a lot of graphics a few years ago when had I more free time on my hands. Now, as a college student, I am retired from making graphics. :D So, I thought that I'd post some of my old ones on here. (And sorry - I don't know how to make the image size smaller.)

My two most favorite CW ladies:

Features Ryan Kelly from Celtic Thunder, Máiréad Nesbitt, and Órla:

Susan faved and tweeted this one:

Méav Ní Mhaolchatha / Favorite Méav CD
« on: January 14, 2019, 02:30:38 PM »
I love all of Méav's CDs, of course, but my very favorite is Silver Sea because I love that it consists of songs involving the sea. :D The Calling would be my second. :)

CW Photos & Graphics / Celtic Woman as Sims
« on: January 03, 2019, 11:10:34 AM »
About 2 years ago, I made the CW ladies as characters on The Sims 4 (a video game). I thought this was just something fun to share, and I hope you can tell who they all are! (Tara's Sim is separated from the rest because she was announced as a member a couple months after I made this collage, and I remember being so happy when Tara liked and shared it on her Twitter page. :D)





And since this was made a couple years back and the lineup has changed now, I'll have to add a Megan Sim when I get the time. :)

*****
Also, just a bonus, on Méav's Sim, I tried to copy the outfit she wore during Divinas. :D

Celtic Woman / Favorite CW Christmas DVD
« on: January 02, 2019, 10:00:21 AM »
I'll have to go with A Christmas Celebration because it includes my most favorite Christmas songs, and I am in love with those pretty pastel dress - especially Órla's. :D
