Celtic Woman Songs from the Heart - Review & Giveaway

{This giveaway has ended. Congratulations to #104 Matt} Bagpipes are my favorite instrument, so when I was given the chance to review the new CD titled: Celtic Woman: Songs From The Heart, I absolutely said Yes.

My thoughts on this CD:

I thought the music was beautiful and kept in the spirit of Celtic music. It's re-inspired me to look into Highland dancing. ;) And of course, there were bagpipes.

The music was light and airy. It wasn't too overpowering or instrumental so I think it would appeal to most people. The collection of songs even contains popular songs like Sting's "Fields of Gold" and Mariah Carey's "When you believe."

A few things you may not know about the Women behind Celtic Woman:
This group is all over the Billboard charts, selling more than 3.8 million records in the US, has had 7 sold out US tours, and has performed on Dancing with the Stars. They are currently on tour including dates at Radio City Music Hall. To find out more, visit www.celticwoman.com

Would you like a chance to experience the Celtic Woman CD? EMI Music and Music Moms are offering one Suburban Jungle reader the chance to win the Songs from the Heart CD.

I love Irish music. We used to visit an Irish Pub in Alexandria, VA, where the bagpipe corps would come in once a month. Pretty loud in a pub, but marvelous nonetheless.

I listen to a VERY wide range of music. I'm half Irish and love Celtic music, but I listen to Alternative most of the time.

I listen to country when I have the car to myself but lets be honest and admit that most of the time, its kids stuff!

Melonie said...

What an awesome giveaway - thanks for hosting it! :-)

I'm an eclectic listener - one day it's hard rock, another day it's Celtic, another it's Eisa (a Japanese drum music we discovered when we moved to Okinawa). Needless to say my iPod is quite the adventure to listen to. LOL

Melonie said...

Blogged it! :-)

WOW their voices are beautiful! I had actually never heard of them until I followed the link over here from Melonie K's blog... but I've spent the last half-hour listening to clips from their YouTube channel. Amazing.

As for my favorite style, it generally depends on the day and my mood but the constant is, I want it to be uplifting and to make me happy. :)

I really like the old motown music. It just got a great sound. It makees me want to get up and dance or reminds me of a love gone wrong when I was a teenager. Pegaleg222@aol.com

lisanne said...

I like all kinds of music. It depends on my mood or what I am doing at the time. I like something energetic when I am cleaning, classical when I am reading, "oldies" which are actually music I listened to in college for working in the garden, so I can sing along, .... . This is really beautiful. I think I would listen to it while cooking.

Oh boy...FAVORITE? That's too exclusive.
I love praise and worship music, that's probably my favorite.
But I also love jazz, blues, country, ROCK, punk (old school, not this new school crap), classical (especially baroque), and gregorian chant (it's my secret to help me study)

We are a family of music lovers with a wide variety of tastes. My husband's favorite is country, my son's is more rapper although he tries to hides his love of show tunes. My daughter loves classical and instrumental and I love easy listening. We have listened to the Celtic Women before on PBS and loved them. Thanks so much! pamelashockley(AT)netscape(DOT)net
