BEAUTIFUL MUSIC IN A BEAUTIFUL SETTING
I thoroughly enjoyed Sunday's performance of Ancient Land by Celtic Woman. The music was beautiful as always, and so were the performers. I have watched over time as the mix of voices has changed. The sound may change, but the over-all quality is still exemplary. I wish the weather had been a bit more inviting, but it could have easily been much worse. I even appreciated Máiréad’s comment about wishing she had her robe on, reflecting on the chill and wind that they were dealing with. We in the audience were bundled up, but the team on stage carried on despite the conditions. Thank you, Celtic Woman, for a wonderful evening!

CELTIC WOMEN 12/18/19, LOT'S OF TALKING AND COUGHING IN THE BALCONY
Fantastic orchestra, fantastic singers, a real Christmas spectacle. Here is what went wrong. Up in the peanut gallery, a group of women could not stop talking and swearing through most of the show, even after being asked to be quiet. The finale for these rude women was dropping a phone on my mom and asking her to find it on the floor during the show. It is unbelievable how these women disregarded everyone else's experience. Then the fake snow . . . it was beautiful at first, but then the fibrous material that floated in the air made people cough and sneeze for the remainder of the show. People had their scarves and shirts pulled up over their mouth to get a breath without inhaling whatever the snow was made of. One of the Celtic women commented that it was a surprise that the fake snow was falling and hoped not to breath it in while singing. A potentially great show ruined by a few uncouth ladies and the crowd coughing and choking on fake snow.

SOUND SYSTEM SPOILED THE FIRST HALF
Well what can I say? I’ve been a fan for years, but what the @#*%? I needed earplugs. The opening songs were a wall of sound where the background musicians drowned out the singers. They adjusted something a few selections in and it was bearable. They got it closer by the second half. The musicians are brilliant. Tara McNeil is a standout, but a poor sound technical crew killed the magic. The sound was overproduced. I was reminded of a Britney Spears concert my niece dragged me to years ago. It was nice to see Chloe Agnew on stage, Isle of Hope was wonderful. Megan Walsh has a lovely voice, but there was control and cohesiveness lacking. Goofy choreography spoiled the awe and mysticism of the televised shows at historic locations. The grand choir and orchestra were MIA and replaced by a handful of stage musicians. Budget cuts? The dark-haired Celtic lady, Mairead Carlin was flapping her arms around and weaving like a harpy. She also flattened many top notes. The sound in the second half was better. The women had moments that reminded me of the great shows of the past with lovely harmonies. I kept thinking they need a manager. Chloe? Megan Walsh’s I am the voice was well done, though it didn’t match the intensity and poise of Lisa Kelly’s standout performance, still available on YouTube. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_JJx_NkT2N4 Also Watch Lynn Hilary’s Lagan Love, from the Slane Castle production, or dear Chloe’s The Prayer on YouTube and save your money. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=YPiCVuSOzmI&list=PL94980ED2529D1AA5&index=3 This live theatre show didn’t do it for me. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BYT5NKAIYI8

CELTIC WOMEN BORED ME
This show dragged from the start. I had high expectations of pretty music and ladies. Same old Christmas carol music dragged on and on. No costume changes. No inspiring choreography Sorry. I've seen better shows at high school

ONE STAR REVIEW FOR THE ONLY ONE STAR WHO APPEARED
My family and I have been enjoying Celtic Woman performances for many years and honestly, last night's show in Cincinnati is our last. We knew going into the show, we were minus Chloe but to have Meariad as the ONLY original performer and still call the Celtic Woman....very misleading and disappointing. The performer wearing a ball cap during the show....would not have seen this previously. From the start the show disappointed (down to the stains on one of the gowns worn)....am I being too tough, NO! the fact I am taking time to write this review sums my disappointment up. At least, I have my CDs....signed, not certain celtic woman will survive
