Internationally renowned for alluring stage productions and songs of heartwarming inspiration, Celtic Woman present their new chapter of musical enchantment in HOME FOR CHRISTMAS. Vocalists Lisa Lambe, Susan McFadden, Méav Ni Mhaolchatha and Celtic violinist Máiréad Nesbitt perform timeless holiday favorites (“Silent Night,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear,” “Joy to the World”) with their signature Celtic twist, under the distinctive musical direction of Emmy®-nominated music producer David Downes. CELTIC WOMAN: HOME FOR CHRISTMAS is part of special programming premiering on witf on December 2 at 8 p.m., December 3 at 1 a.m., and December 8 at 8 p.m.

HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, directed by Russell Thomas and filmed at Dublin’s Helix Theatre, is both a visual and aural feast. Featuring Ireland’s finest musicians composing a 36-piece orchestra and the 40-member Philharmonic Choir, this large-scale production is a moving and festive celebration of the music cherished for generations.

Since Celtic Woman’s March 2005 American debut on public television, the unique all-female ensemble has emerged as a spectacular commercial success and a genuine cultural phenomenon. Their evocative, uplifting music has crossed over national and cultural borders to touch the hearts of a devoted fan base that spans the globe. The adult contemporary ensemble has gone on to achieve world-renowned success by connecting directly to fans via public television and international tours. Celtic Woman has sold over eight million CDs and DVDs worldwide, with multi-platinum album sales in nine countries, and over 2.3 million concert tickets sold.
