Hi everyone!

My name is Tom.

I'm not exactly sure when I first listened to Celtic Woman, but my best guess is the summer of 2005. I remember seeing the promos for the first show on PBS and was interested, but I somehow managed to miss it when it was originally on.  Cry That summer I believe, I was looking up Enya's "May It Be" and happened across Lisa Kelly singing that song. Needless to say I was amazed!

Although I've loved their music for a while, I'm ashamed to say I didn't always follow the group closely over the years. I didn't watch PBS much and I wasn't into social media much back then. Also, I didn't know anyone else at the time that liked the group. Because they were never on the radio in Canada, they regrettably slipped my mind for a while. So I ended up missing some of the specials along the way. Sad

But every now and then, there were reminders of just how good they were. Many times, I looked up a song and found a cover by Celtic Woman that was better than the original version of the song.

Their music (and their aura) got me through some pretty tough times over the years.

Honestly, I didn't get into social media and go officially SUPER-CWAZY until I saw Destiny on PBS. I started having discussions about the PBS special with family / friends. It was at that point I got some other people hooked on Celtic Woman. I ended up revisiting ALL their previous albums (including every solo album from all 13 lead members of Celtic Woman) and sharing my list of favourite songs with the people I had introduced to the group. I built a fancy spreadsheet of all their songs (group and solo albums), as well as some of their stuff from YouTube that never appeared on albums. It was somewhere between 600 - 700 songs and I enjoyed almost all of them.

The first time I saw them live was in March when I went to see Destiny. I was soooo excited to finally see them live and I absolutely loved it!

My favourite Celtic Woman song (a tough decision as I love a LOT of their songs) is "The Parting Glass!" It's so beautiful and touching. Celtic Woman does BY FAR the best cover ever of that song.

My biggest wish is that I one day get to meet some of the lovely and talented women of the group. I want to go to a meet and greet (badly), so I'm keeping a close an eye on some of the PBS stations for pledge drives involving M&G tickets. Sadly, the ones for my local PBS station(s) keep getting snatched up too quickly. Not next time though. I will find a way!  Grin

The Celtic Woman forum has been an awesome resource for me for years now. I'm thrilled to finally be a member and I'm stoked about getting the chance to meet some you forum legends!  Grin

Hello! I'm Courtney, officially ten years since I became a fan of CW! And about five since I've posted on this forum, lol!
I've seen CW an amazing one time when members consisted of Mairead N, Mai C, Lisa L, and Susan and I will remember that for the rest of my life.
I think my favorite member has to be Hayley. I love to sing and Hayley become my main inspiration in my own music, of course the other girls all have a place in my heart. I've talked to a few of the members over PM  and they're the most down to earth, kind people you could hope to meet. And this community really drew me in immediately as t did the first time. I'm happy to be here ^.^

Welcome back!

I have sadly never seen Lisa Lambe or Hayley live.

The forum is definitely special and I can honestly say my life would not be the same without this place or the people here. <3
