Halfway through Songs From The Heart Summer Tour!

Hi Everyone!

I can't believe we are halfway through our Summer Tour which started off in Canada through to Omaha where we are now!

There are two places that have stood out for me so far. One is
our day and show at the Bethel Woods Amphitheater.
This is next door to the original site where Woodstock happened in 1969! It was incredible to be standing there where so many our heroes played that weekend, like my man Jimi Hendrix!
We were looked after by Duke who showed us around the site area.
Here are a few pics of the stage area, the marker, and Duke, holding up a pic of all the people who were at the same area in '69!

The other time so far on this tour was
last night in Sioux City at the Tyson Events Center where we had storms, rain and amazing looking skies throughout the show! Some fierce weather sound effects were to be heard and gave the show an extra dimension!
Here's a pic!

Thanks to all of you for making our nights so special.
The audiences have been fantastic on this tour with people coming back time and time again.
The energy that I get from you when I'm on stage really becomes part of me and the performance, so thank you for that and for all your support!

Le grá,



  1. Sorry Everyone! All the comments here were accidentally deleted....but I saw them all, thank you!

  2. Oops!!! Folks were wondering what happened, Máiréad! If you hit a delete key at the wrong time a whole page of posts disappears!!

    It was a wonderful summer tour to that point (and after), and Bethel/Woodstock certainly a memorable night for all of you on stage and for us. It didn't hurt that Jimi decided to join you at the end of the show with thunder, lightning, wind, and rain. Kind of a new ensemble of Earth, Wind, and Fire!! Groovy.

    Thank you for a great four shows in New York state and then again later. They just might want you back there!

    Cheers, Scott

  3. Dear Mairead, You and the Girls are in the Hearts of all your fans in America! I have not enjoyed music in the past as I do when You are performing with Celtic Women. May I suggest for your next CD or DVD. Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D Major. I found it on you-tube by several artists. One has had over 7 million views in the past months. Your violin may have been crafted to play this music created in the 1680's. You and your mother could do it. Here in the U.S. it is popular for weddings. May you have a Wonderful Christmas! I hope to meet you. With Love, Regan
