Tara had been dreaming of performing with Celtic Woman for a long time. When she performed the harp in the band during the Celtic Woman: Destiny special / DVD, she looked longingly at the stage, hoping that one day it would be her up there with those girls.

On August 16, 2016, Tara's dream came true!

Here's some information about Tara's first tour with Celtic Woman on their tour to South Africa.


From looking over posts on social media, the reaction to Tara and the show in general was positive overall!

Set list:

Opening act: Mzanzi Youth Choir (approximately 5 songs / 30 minutes)

Destiny (Terloc's Dream)
Siuil A Ruin (All)
Mairead Carlin spoke
Ride On (Eabha and Mairead Carlin)
Whole of the Moon (Susan)
Susan spoke
Across the World (Tara) ... Tara says this is a brand new violin solo.
How Can I Keep from Singing (Eabha)
Amazing Grace (Mairead Carlin, Eabha, Susan)
Eabha spoke
Danny Boy (all)
Westering Home (all)
Orinoco Flow (Mairead Carlin, Eabha, Susan)
Skyrim (Tara)
Nella Fantasia (Mairead Carlin)
My Name is Ray!! / 3's a Crowd (All of the Rays)
Bean Phadin
Susan spoke
Walk Beside Me (Eabha)
You Raise Me Up (all)
Tier Abhaile Riu (All)


About 1 hour and 15 minutes

Tara's Role

Tara opened the show with Terloc's Dream (Destiny) as Mairead Nesbitt did earlier in the Destiny Tour.

... I think they should have renamed it #TarasDream for the show, but that's just my opinion ;)

Tara had 2 other solos:
  • Across the World
  • Skyrim

In this tour, Tara only played violin. In the Celtic Woman: Voices of Angels tour, she played harp as well.

Tara wore 2 dresses:
  • A purple one
  • A blue one
