Ancient Land is the next chapter of Celtic Woman’s extraordinary musical journey, as the group continues to touch the hearts of a huge global audience with the centuries-old Irish tradition of telling stories through song: stories of the land, stories of love and stories of dancing — songs that will bring a piece of Ireland to audiences everywhere.
Continuing the remarkable legacy of introducing some of Ireland’s most talented singers and musicians onto the world stage, Celtic Woman features the angelic voices of Megan Walsh, Mairéad Carlin, Éabha McMahon and the breathtaking Celtic violinist Tara McNeill, accompanied by a full ensemble of musicians and dancers.
Recorded in Real World Studios in the UK, Ancient Land is the thirteenth studio album featuring all new material for Celtic Woman. It includes original compositions “Follow Me,” “Be Still” and “Love & Honour” (instrumental), Irish traditional songs “Sive,” “Mná na hÉireann (Women of Ireland)” and “Moorlough Shore”, and some reimagined workings of contemporary songs “Long Journey Home,” “Going Home” and “Homeland.”
