Celtic Women

Our dear mother turned 75 this month and my two sisters have done a marvelous job of making sure that it's a birthday to remember. Months ago Alice had the idea of getting tickets to go see Celtic Women performing live. Mom LOVES them and has only seen them on TV.

This plan soon morphed into me and Susanne traveling to join the fun, so next week basically a whole bunch of Celtic Women will go see the Celtic Women. My sister Mary and her eldest daughter have seen to all of the dinner plans before the show and it sounds like it's going to be a fabulous night.

For those of you who don't know about the Celtic Women, here is what Wikipedia says:

Celtic Woman is a musical ensemble comprised of five Irish and one New Zealand female. The group's repertoire ranges from traditional Celtic tunes to modern songs. To date, the group has released three albums, Celtic Woman, Celtic Woman: A Christmas Celebration and Celtic Woman: A New Journey, and have undertaken a number of world tours. The foundation for Celtic music's popularity outside of Ireland and Europe was previously set by artists Enya and Clannad, along with stage shows Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. To this end, Celtic Woman has been referred to as "Riverdance for the voice".

Get ready to dance ma--with your voice that is ;-) Happy Birthday Mom. See you soon! -M
P.S. And we get to see two week old little Jojo!
