Hi Everyone!

We are well on the the way into our Emerald Musical Gems tour in the U.S. of A & thank you for all the support, lovely tweets & beautiful gifts along the way!

As the girls have said, we are so very fortunate to have so much in this life & to give back as much as we can along the way is not only so important but hugely rewarding as well.

I have been so extremely lucky to get such beautiful gifts from so many of you out there & they take pride of place wherever I am. 
I have also been very fortunate that my charity of choice
have been helped in the past by the creative endeavors of the numerous times as well as others.
This pic is of a cheque presented to me in 2010 of the contributions made by one very generous anonymous contributor & by all at the forum firstly & also by the auction of a beautiful portrait by Glen '@RottenRebel' which altogether made up $7,500.00 for Oxfam Unwrapped Ireland.
I want to thank all at the forum & Glen again for this amazing achievement.

This all came about with my idea that instead of people spending their hard earned money on gifts to me, that they could donate to my charity of choice instead. I would love for this to remain happening instead of sending & giving gifts to me. As much as I appreciate them I feel it would be fantastic to donate instead. So thank you all so much in advance for that & for all the help in the past too.

Over the last few weeks we have done lots here in the States from being on the Today Show, then saying a temporary bye to Lisa & wishing her the very best in what she is doing, to welcoming back Lynn for that time. We are very excited to be in Radio City on May 21st also & seeing all of you back again in the audiences for our new show Emerald. It's been fantastic to hear all the rave reviews  to the new numbers, the new arrangements & new look of our show.
It was fantastic also for Emerald to debut at #1 in the Billboard World Music Charts, to get World Artist of the Year & to make it to the top 12 in the Billboard Top 200 Chart. 
Here's to the rest of our tour here! Thanks to you all for your support as always to us, we really appreciate it & we have loved meeting up with you all at Meet & Greets.

See you along the way on the rest of our US tour & beyond!

Slán go fóill,

Le ghrá,

Hi All!

What another year it's been & here we all are into 2014!

Another amazing year for us & thanks to all of you out there for all your support.

We of course saw a lot of our friends & supporters on our US tour which continues to be a huge part of our year! It was great to see a lot of familiar faces again at the meet & greets before our shows.
The audiences were astounding with lots of energy that really keeps us going & as we always say, the audience is our 5th Celtic Woman!
The filming of our Emerald DVD on that tour was testament to the energy of our audiences every night!
The genius of Sy O'Mahony was again obvious in his beautiful gowns!
I can't wait to see him in Nashville for our rehearsals where he will again undoubtedly work his magic!

Onwards from the US to our tour of Europe! 
It was really wonderful again to see our friends here & to experience again the history in every city!
I got the chance to meet up on a few occasions with my close friends Bruce Somers & Simone Fromm. Always a very special occasion for me!

From our European Tour to doing some promo in Australia, it was a chance for us to get acquainted again with this great country! A whirlwind visit it was for 5 days before we then traveled to Vegas for rehearsals for our Symphony Tour.

Starting our Symphony Tour at the Venetian for the opening of their Winter in Venice Season laid the bench mark for what was to come. We had amazing concerts with fantastic orchestras including members of the Boston Pops Orchestra, The Boston Symphony Orchestra & Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Every night was wonderful musical experience for us and our lovely audiences.

Our promo trip to Oz paved the way for our tour just done in Jan.
It was incredible & we had such great audiences there also.
The weather was incredible & we even got a few chances to enjoy it!


From doing our new Home for Christmas DVD which made it to #1 & enabled us to be awarded  World Artist of the Year to now embarking on our Emerald Tour for 2014 in the US, it has been one packed year til now! Looking forward now to our production rehearsals coming up in Nashville & to seeing you all out on the road again very soon!

Slán go fóill!
