News and Updates / Re: "Stay Away From Stars" with Mairead Released
« on: May 09, 2018, 07:45:32 PM »
My guess would be a whole bunch of us contacted EMI asking if we could buy copies of the songs and they eventually listened.  ;D

Wait...you can get this on iTunes?

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/stay-away-from-stars-selection-new-standards-by-don/id1162138501

When did that happen?

It says it was release 26 Oct 2015.

I don't know what happened here, but I thought I had a really good luck a couple of years ago and couldn't find it anywhere publicly available for purchase (except streaming sites like SoundCloud).

Was this thing on iTunes the whole time or did they release it after I looked last time?

News and Updates / Mairead in The Little Prince musical soundtrack
« on: March 20, 2018, 11:23:52 AM »
It looks like Mairead is going to be part of a musical soundtrack of The Little Prince!

Excerpt from original post:

So excited that Nick and my gorgeous friend Jamie Reid have asked me to sing for their new musical soundtrack of The Little Prince- playing the part of The Little Prince himself. I cant say much more but I will tell you the other leads are Hollywood Royalty and Im SO excited. Hint: #thegreatestshowman #lesmiserables

Hmm. My guess (without having looked up everyone else in both casts), is Hugh Jackman.

News and Updates / Mairead Modeling
« on: March 20, 2018, 12:51:07 AM »
Mairead is being represented by Assets Model Agency. It looks like she'll be doing modeling on the side when she returns from the Homecoming tour at the end of June.

She certainly has the looks for it.

It can't be an easy industry to be part of, but I'm confident Mairead has the mental toughness to handle it and not let it control her or change the wonderful person that she is.

Mairead Carlin Links / Interview with Leith Forrest (Feb 11, 2018)
« on: February 11, 2018, 05:51:23 PM »
Mairead did an interview with Leith Forrest, which is available on SoundCloud:

https://soundcloud.com/fiveaa/celtic-woman-are-coming-to-adelaide-mairead-carlin-spoke-with-leith-forrest

I really liked this interview. Although some of the questions weren't new, the way that Mairead answered them was outstanding. She came across as adorable and sweet, just like she is in person.

She hinted again that on the Homecoming tour, there could be an emphasis on Irish songs they haven't covered before or at least not in a while.

I can hardly believe it's coming up on 5 years since Mairead Carlin joined Celtic Woman! It seems like just yesterday she was singing Scarlet Ribbons during her very first show:

Homecoming Tour and DVD / Interview with RTE (Feb 2, 2018)
« on: February 02, 2018, 07:37:42 PM »
Celtic Woman did an interview with RTE, posted on February 2, 2018.

https://www.rte.ie/entertainment/2018/0202/937900-celtic-woman-its-a-really-exciting-time-for-us/

It contains a short video interview, but a good one. There's some interesting things about the Homecoming tour they casually mentioned during the interview that should get fans excited!  ;)

The article also contains writeup of the interview.

Homecoming Tour and DVD / Re: Release Date for Homecoming CD/DVD
« on: January 29, 2018, 06:02:13 PM »
You have an awesome supervisor, Tracie!

I'm going to have 2 copies of the CD as well (one of the DVD). I pre-ordered the CD and DVD from Amazon (I prefer them separate instead of having both sandwiched in one case), despite the higher cost of ordering them separately.

I also ordered a signed copy from Target yesterday (the insert is signed on the front cover and it has the two Target-exclusive songs as well). From pics I've seen on places like Facebook, they look like live signatures as opposed to mass-produced copies. I would have ordered that one first, Target doesn't ship those to Canada, so I had to find someone I know in the US who was making a trip to Canada within the next few months and have it shipped to them.

- "Favorite Hymns II" tentatively scheduled for May, 2018!  :o
- They're also tentatively considering a FALL TOUR in 2018!!!!!

Please, PLEASE do another concert, ladies. I will find a way to be there...


Here's some pictures from CaraNua's debut concert in North America.

I really like the dresses and the way their hair was done for this show. Absolutely stunning!!!!  :o








Last but not least...

CaraNua recorded an acapella cover of A Million Dreams (from The Greatest Showman) in Utah before they returned to Ireland.

This is so gorgeous it's a must-listen!

That is some of the most beautiful and crystal clear harmony I have ever heard!

Celtic Woman / Mairead in the studio
« on: January 24, 2018, 09:18:01 PM »
Mairead was doing some recording at Herbert Place Studios this week.

Given that both Susan and Mairead were in the same studio on the same week, I think the recording is probably for Celtic Woman rather than a solo project.

There's also a limited number of copies of signed Homecoming booklets for pre-order, exclusively from Target.

Note: they apparently don't ship internationally.

The Homecoming DVD and live album are available for pre-order from the Celtic Woman site now with special bundles!

The CD and DVD can either be ordered separately, or together in a single jewel case.


The Target version of the live CD apparently has 2 exclusive bonus tracks:

A very nice Christmas message from the ladies.

Mairead's voice sounds absolutely gorgeous.

Mairead Carlin Links / Re: Christmas songs on RTE Radio 1 (Dec 19, 2017)
« on: December 26, 2017, 08:52:40 AM »
I love this performance!! I really hope Susan, Mairead, Eabha and Tara record a Christmas album and dvd 😃

They've hinted a few times they're doing something really special next summer. I'm not sure what it is yet, but the timing would be about right to record something Christmas related.

Homecoming Tour and DVD / Re: Release Date for Homecoming CD/DVD
« on: December 26, 2017, 08:50:23 AM »
I think people that ordered the CD/DVD through a PBS pledge drive already started to receive their copies.

The cost of that pledge gift on top of a M+G is a bit much though.
