Celtic Woman: The Greatest Journey
CELTIC WOMAN: THE GREATEST JOURNEY is the essential collection of Celtic Woman’s most beloved and memorable songs. The program, part of special programming airing on WXXI-TV and WXXI-HD, Sunday, August 2nd at 8 p.m. gives new fans the chance to understand Celtic Woman’s success and old fans a chance to reminisce. The special is a collection of memorable highlights taken from their acclaimed PBS specials: CELTIC WOMAN, CELTIC WOMAN – A NEW JOURNEY and CELTIC WOMAN: A CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION. Performances include “Danny Boy,” “Somewhere,” “Orinoco Flow,” “At the Ceili” and many more.
 
The Celtic Woman journey to international renown began in 2005. Now, with more than three million CDs and DVDs sold in the US — including gold and platinum album certifications, a #4 debut on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and #1 on the Billboard World Music Chart for more than 90 consecutive weeks — three hit specials on PBS and concerts in front of more than 800,000 fans in the U.S. alone, Celtic Woman remains a major force in the contemporary music landscape.
 
All of the songs are intertwined, using stunning scenic and landscape images of Ireland. This special showcases vocalists Lisa, Chloë, Órla, Méav, Hayley, Alex, Lynn and fiddler Máiréad. CELTIC WOMAN: THE GREATEST JOURNEY seamlessly takes viewers on Celtic Woman’s greatest journey.
